In this episode, I speak with Myeashea Alexander, The Rockstar Anthropologist. Anthropology and science communication and outreach have been long-term interests for Myeashea. In her role as The Rockstar Anthropologist, she writes a blog about science, culture, and anthropology; runs a mobile bone lab for schools and youth groups which provides a hands-on learning experience that includes forensic anthropology, archaeology, history, math, art, and culture; and produces a video series on YouTube called “Science and…” where she talks with scientists about their lives and hobbies. Myeashea holds an AA degree in anthropology, a BA in Culture and Media Studies from The New School in New York City, and a MA in biological anthropology from Hunter College, also in New York.
