About This Show
As scientists, we find our research intimately tied to the state of science policy and funding in the federal government. As citizens, we want to be better informed about the governing bodies, agencies, and individuals who set the scientific goals for our nation. In this podcast, we bridge that gap, bringing you conversations with the finest minds at the intersection of science, policy, and advocacy.

Joe Kennedy: on the taxation of knowledge
Congressman Joe Kennedy is as passionate as we are about STEM education, making it a priority for his district and the nation. So the Science Soapbox team was thrilled to visit his office to talk about what inspired his interest in STEM education and its relationship as a critical concern for our economy. The Congressman also discussed how his degree in Management Science and Engineering influences his outlook on policy, and how it's informed his concerns around the looming tax reform, especially its impact on graduate students. This episode was recorded one day before the House voted to pass the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act Bill, so we hope you find our conversation timely and useful.
