Episode 40 - Mick


Meet Mick, the mastermind behind Science & Beers. Now he is collaborating with DIAS and SDU in bringing science closer to people. In the 40th episode of Humans of SDU, we learn about how Mick transformed the popular science program into a podcast. We also talk about the importance of making science accessible to young people.

  • What is Mick doing with his new bus?
  • Is there a famous scientist he would like to have on his show?
  • Does he enjoy Hungarian beers?

How did we find Mick?

Well, this one is on us. Mick truly needs no introduction – the creative force behind the awesome lecture series Science and Beers and other initiatives is an important part of the community in Odense. We really should have been the ones to bring him into our podcast. Instead, Mick reached out to us! And needless to say, he created a real wave of excitement in our team by doing so. After all, it is not every day that you get an email from “the Science and Beers guy”!

Portrait of Mick

“I want to encourage or at least normalize talking about science in a social setting. When you go to the pub, it’s okay to have a little debate. A debate about things that need to be debated.”


In our talk, Mick really showed his love for both science and beers. In a spirit true to his own event/podcast, while drinking (and advertising!) a Hungarian beer, he offered his interesting thought on the current state of science and how it should be part of the general debate much more. Plus, he offered a life hack that everyone who misses the bustling noise of a crowded bar will surely appreciate – what is it? Well, listen to what Mick has to say in this episode of Humans of SDU to find out!
