Tinkering Belles with Tamara Robertson

Join me, Tamara Robertson (Mythbusters, Scijinks, Seekers of Science) while I work to amplify the BAMF Females Behind the Builds, one interview at a time. On this podcast, I will cover the entire spectrum of what constitutes a Maker including but not limited to traditional garage skills, crafting and cosplay design, metal working, YouTube and Instagram Making, STEM careers like Engineering and Technology Development as well as the creatives here in LA LA Land . I am on a mission to normalize women in the shop while also amplifying and bringing to light the raw stories and deeper meaning behind the surface level shares of Makers on the internet. Each episode will help audiences feel closer to the bi-weekly featured Maker and learn more about their builds while also including an informative “Tech Talk” highlighting the design / history of a tool/process/item that is relevant to the Maker in that Episode.
