We talk to Jess Phoenix, a volcanologist, geologist, and 2018 Democratic candidate seeking election to California's 25th Congressional District. We both explore the emergence of scientists running for office, Jess's positions on science and non-science issues, and whether scientists in Congress will make any difference.
