About the Podcast

It’s (Probably) Not Rocket Science (IPNRS) is a podcast series that delves into intricate topical matters with fresh research influencing our contemporary society. The podcast highlights our esteemed faculty known around the globe as some of the top researchers in their respective fields. Seriously, we kid you not!

The goal is to bring our listeners informal conversations on a wide variety of topics featuring researchers from an R1 University with very high levels of research activity. The exploration of these topics will occur through engaging discussions with research specialists and scholarly experts giving listeners the opportunity to get to know our faculty and staff with expansive topical knowledge.

While certain topics may seem difficult to understand, on this show, we can demystify academic subjects and confidently declare, “it’s not rocket science.”

It’s (Probably) Not Rocket Science is a production of the University of New Mexico’s Communication and Marketing team with new episodes set for release every other Tuesday. We hope you’ll find them every bit as interesting as we have in recording each episode.
