Insufficient Facts is a science podcast in which our host Christiane Jacquemetton interviews various professionals in the scientific community about their research and how it relates to broader scientific ideas and events. As she conducted her own research for her dissertation, she realized that many of the offerings in the podcast space centered on general scientific knowledge. With Insufficient Facts, she wanted to find a way to bring the most recent research in science and brand-new discoveries in different scientific fields to the general public, and to highlight the scientists behind the work. Each episode of the new season of Insufficient Facts highlights a different researcher and their work, bringing you a wider knowledge of specific studies.

Meet Our Host
Christiane is finishing her PhD in Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Los Angeles in the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Her work has centered on understanding the ways in which the features of Canid skulls have diversified, from their origin as a group 40 million years ago to our modern-day household companions.
Season 1 Hosts
The first season of Insufficient Facts featured a panel of three PhD students. You can join Christiane, Kyle, and Rockelle as they take you through a different topic each episode, exploring current and past research in a way that we can all understand. Insufficient Facts opens the door to the kind of science that active researchers find interesting, moving outside of topics you might find in mainstream media, and invites you into the lab with them.
