Radio & Podcast


In early 2017, I co-created the Ocean Lovin’ podcast series with Ocean Science Radio. After interviewing many scientists about the secret sex lives of marine animals, we developed six episodes in 2017.

In 2019, we released five episodes on parrotfish, clownfish, jellies and larvaceans, angler fish and bdelloid rotifers, and pycnogonids and leeches. In 2020 we released episodes on freshwater mussels (a particular favorite of mine) and sea angels and hagfish, 2021 we interviewed scientists about nudibranchs and shipworms, 2022 was all about jellyfish, and 2023 is all about snow crabs!


Between 2015 and 2017 I produced and hosted the Strictlyfishwrap Science Radio Hour on WRFR-LP in Rockland, Maine. In late 2016 my husband Thom Young-Bayer became my co-host.

We produced 1-2 podcasts a month that featured interviews with other scientists, especially UMaine graduate students and researchers.

For now the show is on hiatus while I am in D.C. Thom and I love podcasting together and are hoping to either reboot the show later or do something new altogether. I would argue that our last episode from November 2017 was our finest.


In 2018 I was featured on Brain On! a science podcast for kids featured on NPR. Check out the last segment, “Moment of Um” for my clip.

In 2017, Rob Moir of The Ocean River Institute invited Bryce Stewart and me onto his show to talk about king and sea scallops.

In 2015 I appeared on MPBN’s Maine Calling for the Art of Storytelling and Maine Scallops. I also put my producing skills to work by pitching and help bring together both Maine’s aquaculture and 50th anniversary of the Darling Marine Center and the Maine Scallops shows.
