Uncomfortable is OK Podcast

Making it easier for you to get out of your comfort zone.

Chris Desmond explores the science, the stories, and the strategies of getting out of your comfort zone and finding your magic.

Sep 19, 2016

Hey everyone welcome to episode 21 of the Uncomfortable is OK podcast. I’m your host Chris Desmond.

Today I’m talking with Elizabeth Connor about connecting the potential of science with the real needs of the world. Elizabeth shares with us some interesting stories, about being mentored by Sir Paul Callaghan, postgraduate study in England, winning the Prime Ministers prize for science communication, doing a TEDx talk, starting a business, starting a band, and being in a maths circus.

Elizabeth has done some pretty impressive stuff, but like all of us still has those self-doubts. Today’s conversation is about evolving perspectives and asking the question “Why?” it’s about looking deeper at things, it’s about developing empathy and sharing stories.

Thank you all for tuning in today, I hope you enjoy getting uncomfortable with me and Elizabeth.
