AstronomerAND

  • Mary Beth Laychak; Maunakea Scholars is the Best Non-Profit in the World

    24 MAR. 2023 · Welcome to episode 17 of AstronomerAND. Today is the second half of a two-parter with my guest Mary Beth Laychak. Mary Beth Laychak is the Director of Strategic Communications at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope on the Big Island of Hawai'i. She runs the Maunakea Scholars program, an innovative astronomy outreach program for Hawaiii public high school students. Mary Beth has an undergraduate degree in astronomy and astrophysics from Penn State University and a masters degree in educational technology from San Diego State. She resides in Waimea, Hawai’i. Today we dive into whether Mary Beth considers herself an astronomer, which is a nuanced answer. We talk about my absolutely favorite outreach and education program, Maunakea Scholars, and talk about careers and mental health.

I recognize that her majesty Queen Liliʻuokalani yielded the Hawaiian Kingdom and these territories under duress and protest to the United States to avoid the bloodshed of her people. I further recognize that generations of indigenous Hawaiians and their knowledge systems shaped Hawaiʻi in a sustainable way that allows me to enjoy her gifts today. This episode was funded by the Curb Center in Nashville and we recognize that this land belonged to the Indigenous People before it came to be known as the state of Tennessee, or as the United States of America. We recognize that that Indigenous Peoples were the first residents of what we now know as the State of Tennessee and that Nashville is built upon the homelands and villages of the Indigenous Peoples of this region including the Shawnee, Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Yuchi tribal nations. Our ability to live and work in this state is the result of direct coercion, forced dispossession, and deliberate colonization. To ignore that is to perpetuate injustice to populations of people that continue to seek redistribution of land that was once theirs. We provide this land acknowledgement in recognition and respect of the indigenous people to whom this land truly belongs. We recognize that acknowledgment by itself is a small gesture, and that it becomes meaningful when coupled with authentic relationship and informed action. Inclusivity Statement: I wish for this podcast to be a safe space for those of every gender expression, sexual orientation, ability, race, religious group and age group. I am always trying to learn and improve on my unconscious bias. Any suggestions for improvement will be gratefully received at astronomerand@gmail.com.

  • Mary Beth Laychak; A Migraine Is NOT A Headache

    17 MAR. 2023 · Welcome to episode 16 of AstronomerAND. Today is the first half of a two-parter with my guest Mary Beth Laychak.

Mary Beth has an undergraduate degree in astronomy and astrophysics from Penn State University and a masters degree in educational technology from San Diego State. She resides in Waimea, Hawai’i. In this episode we talk about Mary Beth’s origin story and how she now has a job that didn’t exist when she started astronomy, and some of the bumps in the road along the way. We also talk about what it is like to navigate university with chronic migraines, which is just as awful as it sounds!

  • Kaitlin Rasmussen; An Ode to Dani Atkinson

    10 MAR. 2023 · This week is my second episode with Dr. Kaitlin Rasmussen, where we dive into what it's like to be in the trans or non-binary community as well as an astronomer. We discuss (the lacking) codes of conduct in astronomy departments, how to navitgate conferences safely, and funding for the LGBT community in astronomy. Of course we end up cascading into a bit of a rant-a-thon, but we end with a nice chat about how much we love thier finacé. I hope you enjoy this episode. A little reminder about Kay: they are an astrobiologist at University of Washington and the forthcoming author of "Life in Seven Numbers: The Drake Equation Revealed". They also co-edit a speculative fiction magazine "If There's Anyone Left" and parent two unruly cats.

He is also a member of the Fisk-Vanderbilt Bridge program and alumnus of the Cal-Bridge program in California. His research interests are primarily in stellar evolution, particularly on interacting binaries and stellar rotation. Outside of working on his own research Don spends time mentoring and addressing issues of diversity and racial injustice. He currently leads the BLack Academic Support and Advisory gRoup (BLASAR), which is a Black networking group initiated from Cal-Bridge and has worked as a volunteer programmer to develop a web scraping pipeline for the Code for Nashville organization. In leisure time Don likes to play video games, listen to music, read and occasionally play the piano and make Blender animations.
