About The Podcast

Welcome to Sweet Defiance, the podcast where we pair delicious sweets with compelling stories of forgotten historic women who made great achievements in science.

Each episode, we explore the life and work of a different female scientist, sharing their remarkable stories and delving into the science and impact of their discoveries. We believe that everyone can appreciate a good story, no matter their background or interests. That's why we pair each episode with a carefully chosen sweet treat, creating a multisensory experience that will transport you to a different time and place.

So whether you're a history buff, a feminist, or just looking for a new way to satisfy your cravings, join us on Sweet Defiance as we celebrate the achievements of forgotten female scientists and indulge in our favorite sweet treats along the way. Our stories are for everyone, and we can't wait to share them with you.
