The Story Collider: True, Personal Stories about Science

Everyone has a personal connection to science.

Maybe you were reaching for a Nobel Prize with your high school science fair project until an unforeseeable error caused it to go down in flames. Or, perhaps you’ve been a researcher on an expedition thousands of miles from home, surrounded by people who don’t understand what you’re doing there. Or, you’ve listened to your doctor diagnose you with a condition that you’ve never heard of before. Whatever your science story is, we want to hear about it.

In 2017, St. Louis Public Radio partnered up with The Story Collider, a podcast that produces shows where personal stories about science are told live on stage. The Story Collider was founded by two physicists in 2010 and regularly puts on shows in New York City, Boston, Atlanta and various other cities around the world.

The Story Collider in St. Louis is produced by Gabe Montesanti and Sam Lyons.
