Showing that science is for everyone, “Yes! Science!” is a science series that profiles women and minority individuals in STEM fields. For our third season, we’ve shifted from documentary style to a live studio audience talk show hosted by Pallas the Librarian. In our monthly show, Pallas interviews people in various STEM related careers about their work, perform fun science experiments, lead panel discussions, and discuss books that have inspired our guests.
With the COVID pandemic, we’ve put the show on hold for everyone’s safety and wellbeing. We’re planning to bring the show back, making it bigger and better.

What was the documentary filming process?
The documentary filming process for Yes! Science! is a collaborative venture. Guests are given questions in advance, which they may change, remove, or add to them. Guests also collaborate on filming locations, camera angles, b-roll suggestions, etc. Before the finished video is released, guests will approve the video, and they may change anything, including reshooting their interview.
From the producer of the travel and interview series, Uncovering Oklahoma, this series is a production of The Show Starts Now Studios and is supported by our patrons. Became a patron to receive early access and bonus content.
