“When I’m not studying hard in 1st grade, I’m working on my podcast.” That’s the adorable Twitter tagline of six-year-old podcaster Nate Butkus, who hosts “The Show About Science.”

The Chicago-based youngster started his show when he was only five years old with the help of his producer dad, Eric Butkus. Episodes cover complex scientific topics, from radiation to genome-editing, and feature renowned scientists from around the world.

In a recent episode, Dr. John Wiens, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Arizona, discussed climate change and its impact on evolution.
