Telling the Beautiful Truth with Physicist Jessica Wade

Ep. 135

Here in The Rose Woman Podcast, we explore different themes of liberation in various forms. Today, we are focusing on the liberation found in celebrating the achievements of women scientists and scientists of color through storytelling. Our guest, Dr. Jessica Wade, is a Royal Society University Research Fellow, physicist, and lecturer in Functional Materials at Imperial College London.


Her research considers new materials for optoelectronic, spintronic, and quantum devices, with a focus on chiral molecular materials.


She was previously an Imperial College Research Fellow in SPIN-Lab at Imperial, which is led by Professor Sandrine Heutz. She worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Fuchter and Campbell groups at Imperial College London, where she optimized these chiral systems to absorb/emit circularly polarized (CP) light for CP OLEDs and OPDs. For her PhD, Jess concentrated on organic photovoltaics and the development of advanced characterization techniques to better understand molecular packing under the supervision of Dr. Ji-Seon Kim.


She is involved with several science communication and outreach initiatives, committed to improving diversity in science, both online and offline. Since the start of 2018, she has written thousands of Wikipedia biographies highlighting women scientists' achievements.




In this episode, we cover:

  • Jessica’s Journey into Physics
  • Advocacy for Diversifying Academia
  • Recognizing and the Impact of Unconscious Bias 
  • Algorithm in Recruitment Processing
  • Thoughts on Today’s Education Systems
  • Initiative to write Wikipedia biographies for women scientists
  • The Power of Images
  • Addressing the lack of diversity in Academic Science
  • Career pathways of scientists
  • Pioneer women scientists and their contributions

  • 138. The Eros Sutras with Nicole Daedone

    01:14:37
    In this episode of The Rose Woman Podcast, erotic artist and co-founder of OneTaste, Nicole Daedone, joins us to discuss important topics like internalized shame, sexual wellness, and personal transformation. As an expert in Buddhist meditation and sexual wellness, and the author of "The Eros Sutras," Nicole shares her extensive knowledge and experience with us. So Listen in and discover valuable insights that can help you on your journey towards greater self-awareness and intimacy.Nicole Daedone co-founded OneTaste to reawaken the connection with intimacy, with each other, and to the primal source of energy that drives creativity—sexuality. She created a contemplative discipline around Orgasmic Meditation (OM) that offers an immediate experience of what happens when individuals unleash rather than repress who they are. Since then, OneTaste has gathered some of the greatest research psychologists and neuroscientists to study the intersection of sexuality and human potential, conducting the largest study of its kind since Masters and Johnson. OM has perhaps the most powerful effect of any natural process on healing trauma, promoting well-being, and fostering transcendental experiences. Nicole has brought people together and created systems to manifest and ground this vision in observable benefits.In this episode, we cover:Origins of Orgasmic MeditationDevelopment of OMFeminine Transmission and LanguageOn Writing "The Ero Sutras" manifestoWhat does “Eros” mean?Tumescence and Creative FlowVajra PrideThoughts on desire for further evolution and perfectionThe transformative power of acceptance and self-loveFulfillment Beyond ExpectationsSocietal Conditioning Around Female DesireTrue Desire vs. CravingContributing to SocietyBreaking Free from VictimhoodOn Recognizing Projection in the realm of sexuality and authenticityTrust in Personal ExperienceThe War on SexAI algorithms reflecting societal biases and CensorshipCancel Culture, Resilience and Deep ListeningHelpful links:Nicole Daedone - Author of The Eros SutrasCheck out her latest programs and projects here. The Eros Platform on YoutubeFind Nicole at Instagram Unconditional Freedom: Free Food programSuzuki RoshiEdward BrownBuddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love and Wisdom by Dr. Rick Hanson
