Who is Ginger Campbell?

Dr. Campbell is the American physician who launched the Brain Science Podcast in 2006. She lives in Alabama where she has been practicing emergency medicine for over 20 years. Dr. Campbell was first exposed to neuroscience back in the late 1970's while she was a graduate student in Biomedical Engineering. The Brain Science Podcast reflects her ongoing passion for understanding how the brain (and body) generates the mind.

Dr. Campbell also hosts and produces Books and Ideas, which is a podcast that reflects her interest in a broad range of subjects including other areas of science, philosophy, history, science fiction, dogs, and even video games.

In 2012 Dr. Campbell began publishing a series of eBooks based on the interviews recorded for the The Brain Science Podcast. The first one is Are You Sure? The Unconscious Origins of Certainty. New eBooks will be announced in the BSP Store.

Who is the intended audience?

The Brain Science Podcast is intended for general listeners. No scientific background is assumed or required. However, one of the things that sets the Brain Science Podcast apart from other science shows is that it features accessible in-depth discussions.

We know from our email that listeners range from high school students to working neuroscientists. The broad appeal of the show challenges the dogma that such a show can not be made.
