The Story Collider
The Story Collider

St. Louis Public Radio hosts scientists who will share tales about all the times things went wrong, and occasionally right, in their labs, but you'll also hear from people who haven't had a formal connection to science since high school. Physicists, comedians, neuroscientists, writers, actors, doctors, and many others share their stories at Story Collider events. Some are heartbreaking; some are hilarious. They are all true, and all, in one way or another, are about science.
