It's Halloween! This week, your hosts examine what is sometimes a creepy subject, especially when it involves possible zombies. They explore the science of ethnobotany and how it's been portrayed in popular culture. Complete with Sean Connery impersonation!

The interview this week is with Dr. Marina Milner-Bolotin, who talks about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) Education, how it's risen to prominence over the last few years, and the upcoming STEM conference being held here at UBC next Summer. The Call for Proposals deadline is December 9 for those of you who would like to take part!

We’d love to hear from you about your thoughts on our discussions or interviews and we’re always open to hearing suggestions for the show. Email us at podcast.pdce@ubc.ca.

Just a note that the views expressed in the podcast are those of the hosts and guests, and not necessarily the views of either PDCE or the Faculty of Education at UBC.
