First! We have a new website and some holiday merchandise (www.stemfatalepodcast.com/merch) based on our listener survey! We’re selling high-quality color sticker packs of some our favorite portraits by Caitlin Friesen, covering many different disciplines such as Eugenie Clark, badass shark lady, and Annie Easley, NASA Rocket Scientist! We are super pumped about these stickers and getting to spread more awareness of these ladies. Any proceeds from this merch will go towards making the podcast affordable for us to run, that means costs of equipment, hosting site, website. These would be a great stocking stuffer, Hanukkah gift, or just  because! To keep these affordable and high quality, we are buying the stickers directly, so please don’t wait as we only ordered a limited number!!

 

The second announcement is that we couldn’t get it together in time and so our episode will be coming out sometime on Tuesday! Sorry, its been crazy!

 

Thanks!!
