Episode 43 - Janet Stemwedel

On Episode 43, Nick chats with Janet Stemwedel, Professor and Chair in Philosophy at San Jose State University, about how within two weeks of defending her dissertation in physical chemistry at Stanford she realized that the questions that really kept her up at night were philosophical questions about science rather than scientific questions, why scientific knowledge-building needs ethics, the transmission of "best practices" in the community of science, how engaging in several online academic communities through blog writing and Twitter has helped her philosophical work, and her decision to speak out about sexual assault within the #MeToo Movement.
