92. Parasitic Plants, Arabidopsis Slander, and the Roller Derby Cactus w/ Elizabeth Kelly
What’s up Plant People?! I hope you’re ready for our first guest interview in quite some time, because its a GOOD ONE. Today’s guest, Elizabeth Kelly is a PhD student at Penn State University studying parasitic plants, a brilliant science communicator, an assistant greenhouse manager, an avid roller derby player, and one of my very favorite plant people. Elizabeth (known by her derby name, Swifty, to her friends) and I have been mutuals on TikTok for a couple of years and I’ve wanted to have her on the podcast pretty much ever since. The stars finally aligned and it was well worth the wait. Elizabeth is funny, intelligent, and one of my very favorite science communicators. We talked about research, parasitic plants, botany, non-academic jobs, life on social media, and so much more! I could have talked to Swifty for hours, and I know you’re going to love this episode as much as I did! Make sure to hit up the links below and follow her on TikTok and Instagram!
