Each week, we take a look at the science news that often doesn’t make it into the mainstream media. Science on Top is our attempt to shed light on the extraordinary work being done in the name of science, and discuss the world of science in general.

Science on Top was originally created by Ed Brown, Dr. Shayne Joseph, Penny Dumsday, and Lucas Randall. Shayne has scaled back his on-air appearances but is still involved behind the scenes.

Who we are:

Ed Brown is a geek and a (very) amateur astronomer. He’s a skeptic – someone who values critical thinking and evidence, especially when evaluating extraordinary claims – and a politics and journalism junkie.

Penny Dumsday is a high school science teacher with special interests in zoology and geology.

Lucas Randall is an amateur astronomer, a skeptic and avid science lover.
