Emily Graslie has a contagious enthusiasm for science and discovery. She holds the very real title of “Chief Curiosity Correspondent” at the Field Museum here in Chicago. She hosts a YouTube series called The Brain Scoop. And she’s also the host of a new 3-part series on PBS called Prehistoric Road Trip, where she travels across the western United States to examine the history of our planet.
We talk with Emily about her new show, how loving art and science does not have to be mutually exclusive and then she drops more clam facts on us than we thought were possible.
