Ahead of the Big Mouth’s sixth season premiere this Friday, Sing For Science has released a brand new episode featuring Nick Kroll. Out today, the latest installment of the Talkhouse network’s groundbreaking, multidisciplinary podcast pairs the voice actor, comedian, writer, and producer with NYU Langone’s Pediatric Endocrinologist, Dr. Emily Breidbart, for a discussion that spans Kroll’s experience grappling with delayed puberty, hormone monsters,  normalcy, and the insecurity that inspired Big Mouth characters such Nick, Andrew, Missy and more. Titled “I'm Going Through Changes: Adolescent Hormones and the Science of Puberty,” the interview marks the fourth episode of Sing For Science’s third season, created and hosted by New York musician Matt Whyte, and navigates both public and private health matters, from puberty disorders and their treatments to transgender medicine, endocrinology, and the kind of comedy that can only come from growing pains.

Following new episodes with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, folk legend Arlo Guthrie, and singer, songwriter and plant enthusiast mxmtoon, which explored subjects such as consciousness, nutritional anthropology, and ethnobotany with scientific experts, Sing For Science continues to further expand its central goal of inspiring deeper conversations and making new connections everywhere they are available. Together, host Matt Whyte, Nick Kroll and Dr. Emily Breidbart unpack their most vulnerable moments to show that no matter how alone one may feel, everybody goes through changes, and the humiliating, even haunting, elements of adolescence can ultimately unite and inspire humankind in adulthood. 

New episodes of Sing For Science will continue to be released weekly on Wednesdays through the end of the year. As the show returns to its usual format - using one of the featured musician's most beloved songs as the launching pad for a discussion about a specific topic in a connected field - upcoming guests include Modest Mouse's Isaac Brock and famed mycologist Paul Stamets on mushrooms, plus Margo PriceAlec Benjamin, Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, Korn's Jonathan Davis and Rhiannon Giddens on reproductive healthcare, psychiatry, computer programming, biology and ethnomusicology, respectively. 

With the hope that a more science-literate society can contribute towards greater support for evidence-based policy in government, Sing For Science is "podcasting for a better planet" (UPROXX). On the series’ most exciting slate of music and topics yet, Matt Whyte says, "I started Sing For Science to inspire bigger conversations about my favorite songs - this season's episodes bring a new level of dynamism between musician and scientist. Whether we're talking about metal, pop, physics or psychiatry I always leave these conversations with a greater appreciation for how everything is connected and we are all far more alike than we are different."
