In her work, Kyle Marian Viterbo (Science Friday; The Symposium: Academic StandUp) works and runs events mainly centered around science comedy, science writing and social media communication, racial and social justice advocacy, striving to decolonize the way science is performs, and supporting academics in their studies and research.
How did Kyle move from a primarily anthropological and archaeological education into working in the world of science comedy and communication? What is life like as a New York-based comedian and what is unique about existing in this space as a Filipina comedian in the U.S. right now?
Also, what has Kyle learned and shared with other comedians regarding experiences, lessons and backgrounds on the scene? In what ways must we all think more intersectionally in how we think and interact day-to-day to strive for social justice and equality for members of various groups who face discrimination and hate today?
