In this episode, we interview Biologist Laura Okagaki-Vraspir, who had the distinction of being our first post CONvergence guest! We talk to her about what got her interested in her specialty and the challenges of being a woman in her field. She also educates us on fungi that create zombie ants and reassures us that the fungi in question will not trigger a zombie apocalypse. Then we have her answer our five questions. It was a very interesting conversation! All sciency and stuff!
