As scientists, we hope that the quality of our work speaks for itself. The truth is, however, we as scientists need to speak for our work. Here, we plan to start a conversation about science, how science is done and put this conversation in the context we understand best, the science that we do. We are a collection of researchers working in a wide variety of fields including microbiology, ecology, agriculture, dairy science, marine biology and the philosophy of science. What do we have in common? A general desire to bring science in easily digestible and understandable pieces for those who are interested.
