ABOUT

Hosted by marine biologist Nando Bretos and astronomer Dr. Jorge, the Science Cafecito podcast is born to tell intertwined stories of science, from a South Florida perspective, that entertain and challenge the minds of critical thinkers. Each episode helps us illustrate the relevant role South Florida plays not only in the scientific world, but also in technology, innovation, and art through the lens of science.

The podcast is made possible in part by a grant from the Miami chapter of The Awesome Foundation.

Fernando has a master’s degree from the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. An active environmentalist, his research explores human impacts on tropical coastal habitats and migratory marine wildlife particularly sea turtles.
Dr. Jorge has squeezed terminal degrees in astronomy and fine arts out of the amalgamation of his right and left brain, and is now trying to have them talk to each other. He is a multifaceted astronomer, designer and planetarian. He drinks chocolate milk and rides his bike to places.
