My name is Mel and I’m the host of the STEMxm podcast. :) The goal of STEMxm is to provide a free resource about the variety of STEM careers and paths you could go down. Specifically, we highlight and interview women and minorities in various STEM fields. We aim to bring role models to audiences who may not have access to such role models in their community.
