Science Monkey is hosted by Dr Raywat Deonandan and Dr Graham Sanders. Yes, we are actually doctors. But we’re not the kind of doctors who can get you drugs. Well, maybe we can get you drugs, but not in any legal way. We’re the poor kind of doctors who get preferential seating on airplanes until there’s an actual medical emergency, at which point everyone hates us, because we can’t actually do anything.

Raywat Deonandan is an actual scientist. He has degrees in Physics, Neurophysiology, Science Education, and Epidemiology. He’s the former Chief Science Advisor to the Canadian government on the topic of Assisted Human Reproduction, serves on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Society of Epidemiology & Biostatistics, and is a faculty member at the Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences at the University of Ottawa. He has never been to jail… at least not in this country. Twitter handle: @deonandan


Graham Sanders has a PhD in classical Chinese literature from Harvard University (ooooh), and is an Associate Professor in the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Toronto. He was a science nerd as a kid, but veered off into sustained contemplation of the Dao at some point and never returned. His responses to the science questions on the podcast consist largely of quoting any number of medieval Chinese poets.
