Dr. Becky - Breaking Barriers on Youtube and in Space

Dr. Becky Smethurst is one of the coolest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting through this podcast! Dr. Becky is an astrophysicist in Britain with a Youtube channel dedicated to bringing all of the coolest, nerdiest, science things to people like you and me and putting it all into relatable language. 

In this episode, we dive in with Dr. Becky to learn about her day job, which is to do research into how supermassive black holes can affect the galaxies that they live in and how she connects with people like you and me to bring us into her world in a way we can understand.
