Each week on the Here We Are Podcast, stand-up comedian Shane Mauss travels the country interviewing scientists about their work and the meanings of life. Shane uses his non-academic “every-man” approach to learn about some of the most important research and ideas about life which are discussed in a highly accessible, funny, and interesting way. Listeners get to eavesdrop on Shane’s journey to figure out why we are here, why we behave the way we do, and what to do about it. The aim is to look at life in many different ways as possible to better understand ourselves and have some laughs along the way.

The live episodes create a different kind of night out and have the opportunity to ask scientists questions of their own. People of all ages and backgrounds are invited to have some drinks, learn, laugh, and meet other intellectually curious people in the area.
The topic for the show will be announced once guests are finalized.
