Emily Graslie: “Screwing up traditional conceptions about the sciences since 2013.”

Emily Graslie: “Screwing up traditional conceptions about the sciences since 2013.”

In June, I went to Montana to visit Emily Graslie, who runs the popular YouTube show The Brain Scoop, a show about the internal happenings of zoological museum collections.

One day during my stay we went on a short road trip out to Montana’s border with Idaho. The landscape there is beautiful. We drove for some way down a logging track before pulling over the car, getting out, and going for a short hike. Neither of us was wearing appropriate clothing, but the landscape was so beautiful that it couldn’t be resisted.

On our way back to the car, we found what looked like a complete skeleton on the side of the road. Emily had a small fit of excitement, and quickly set off down the path to the car to grab the equipment that she always has with her so that we could collect the specimen. . . .
