There is an excellent podcast called Talk Nerdy To Me by Cara Santa Maria (the newest member of the SGU) and she talks to various scientists about their passions and fields. This week she had on THE Mika McKinnon. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering:

  • What animal does she finds adorable?
  • Why Ballroom dancing is important?
  • What planetary science is she most excited about?
  • What is this about a walking tiny cactus? (...Spoiler: It’s her pet hedgehog)
  • What does that ring on her pinky finger mean?
  • Is it possible that Mika is responsible for Sharknado?
  • Or even just what she sounds like...

This podcast is for you. Mika sounds like she had a ton of fun recording it, even though it was the second time, and it was a ton of fun to listen to. So, why are you still here? No, I don’t care that you don’t normally listen to podcasts, this is Mika McKinnon, geeeze.

Go and listen! NOW.
