The world around us is an amazing place, filled with beauty… And with science. But let’s face it, sometimes the science can be so confusing that it takes a PhD to understand it. Well, you’re in luck. I just happen to have a PhD. Come and take a seat. Perhaps I can explain the world around us in a way we all can understand.
Welcome to Conversations in Science. I’m Dr Judy L Mohr.
Call me Doc.

Sometimes technical glitches happen and technology fails on us. Many have often heard me discuss how wonderful technology is — when it works. Well, that’s what happened to this month’s episode of Conversations in Science: a technical glitch and it aired a day late. Hence, this blog post is a day late. It’s ironic considering the topic for this month’s show.
Jessie and I discussed what EMP devices really are and the impact they can have on technology. (Jessie, did you set off the EMP device in your driveway?)
Seven years on, and I’m still haunted by the 7.1 earthquake that rudely awoke me from my sleep on September 4, 2010. Each of us find ways to heal in different ways. For me, it’s to look at the science behind what happened, and trying to explain to the world at large exactly what it was like to go through those frightening events.
On this month’s episode of Conversations in Science, Jessie and I spoke about earthquakes and what happens.
It’s that time of month again. Conversations in Science has aired another episode.
This month, I decided to tackle the question on how one can tell the difference between real science and fake science. Jessie added some insights of her own on how to spot fake news.
