Episode 2 Trailer: 500 Women Scientists


This month, we watched sharks inexplicably whirl around in a tornado of doom in Sharknado, the film described by the New York Daily News as "an hour and a half of your life that you'll never get back." And friends, we certainly won't. But it was all for a great cause! In January, we're sending your Patreon donations to 500 Women Scientists, a nonprofit dedicated to making science open, inclusive, and accessible. They're currently fundraising for a new initiative called the Fellowship for the Future to support the work of women of color leading in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). In this trailer, we chat with Dr. Susan Cheng, one of the women leading the Fellowship efforts about their work and what the future of science looks like for 500 Women Scientists. You can learn more about the fellowship and donate here. You can follow 500 Women Scientists on Twitter at @500womensci and Susan at @susanjcheng.  Our Sharknado episode drops next week so look out for it in your feed! In the meantime, you can become a patron of Anthropocinema at patreon.com/anthropocinema to vote for whatever cinematic horrors February has in store for us.
