About Bill Sullivan

I’m a Professor at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Indiana, where I live with my wife and two kids. I received my Ph.D. in Molecular & Cell Biology from the University of Pennsylvania in the year…let’s just say I was listening to a lot of Toad The Wet Sprocket back then. My Ph.D. thesis described my discovery of a few genes responsible for drug-resistance in Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite so fascinating that I continue to study it to this day.

I then enjoyed working at Eli Lilly & Co. for two years, but decided to return to academia so I could wear jeans and T-shirts to work again. If you are interested in our research, check out our laboratory website.

I have written for a number of popular science outlets including Scientific AmericanScientific American  MIND, Salon.com, COSMOS magazine, GotScience.org, What Is Epigenetics, and more. I am an editor and writer at PLOS SciComm, a blog site dedicated to the art of science and medical communication. In 2014, I co-founded my own popular science blog called THE ‘SCOPE, which aims to talk about science in a lighthearted and entertaining way.

I enjoy giving presentations about a variety of science-related topics to all age groups – contact me for topics and booking information. I also serve as a board member for The da Vinci Pursuit, an organization focused on connecting science, art, and community. My love for the arts goes back to my graduate school days: I would science all day, but I would rock out all night with my band, Open Cage.

Why do I do all this? Communicating science is essential for progress and our well-being, but it is not an easy task. The language can be intimidating and the concepts involved take years to master. I made a commitment to do my best to bring science to the people in a way that won’t put them to sleep or make their head implode. I love to laugh and I love to learn; I hope my writing does that for you in equal measure.

Life is Good Co-Founder Bert Jacobs on Optimism and Thriving


Feel good by realizing Life IS Good!
Hear what drives Co-founder Bert Jacobs
A
nd how the company thrives

You may not know the names Bert and John Jacobs but you’ve certainly seen their T-shirts everywhere. Co-founders of the Life is Good company, theirs is a story of amazing growth from selling shirts out of a van to a $100 million dollar enterprise – which coincidentally was the name of their van.

The basis of their business? Optimism! Here are entrepreneurs that not only don’t advertise because word-of-mouth recommendations keep the sales increasing, but Bert actually operates WITHOUT email. And find out what’s prompted them to donate 10% of their profits to children’s endeavors.

Click on the player below to hear the chat with Bert and Pam

About Bert:

In 1989, Bert and John Jacobs designed their first tee shirt. They knew nothing about the business.

For five years, the brothers hawked tee shirts in the streets of Boston and traveled the East Coast, selling door-to-door in college dormitories.

They collected some good stories, but were not very prosperous. They lived on peanut butter and jelly, slept in their van, and showered when they could.

Chicks were not impressed.

By the Fall of 1994, heading home from a long, less-than-fruitful road trip, Bert and John were desperately searching for answers to keep the dream alive. Little did they know, the only answer they needed was back in Boston, hanging up on their apartment wall – Jake.

Jake’s contagious grin, simple as it was, seemed to express everything the Jacobs brothers believed in.

One fateful September day, they printed up 48 Jake shirts for a local street fair in Cambridge, Massachusetts. They laid the shirts out on their rickety card table. By noontime, all 48 of those tees were gone. A star was born.

Soon Jake was introduced to local retailers, and his simple message of optimism was embraced like nothing the brothers had ever seen. As demand for product soared, Jake’s team grew, and the Little Brand That Could began to spread across America.

Today, the New England based brand stays close to its roots, with an emphasis on simplicity, humor and humility. Through Life is good Festivals, positive products, and a steady dose of ping pong, Jake’s crew does its best to keep the good vibes flowing.

It’s about controversial mummies that were found in Peru and covers the latest findings – and controversies  —  and what the experts are saying.  Could these be beings from another planet?

Our guest, Melissa Tittl, is the executive producer of the documentary, and the Director of Original Content for Gaia. We’ll ask her about how these mummies were found, what medical and forensic experts are saying about them, and if they could be a hoax.

We Say #Never Again: Parkland Teachers

When I was offered the opportunity to talk with two of the teachers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who had been on campus during the horrendous shooting on February 14th of this year, I jumped at the chance. There was so much to ask about. Not only what went through their heads at the time, but also what they saw in the kids that day, and in the days after.  Many of these kids came out of it with a mission and purpose, and the energy and determination to see it through.

Melissa Falkowski (journalism) and Eric Garner (broadcast) asked many of their students to write about that day, about how they felt, and what they wanted to accomplish. It’s now in book form, edited by Falkowski and Garner, and titled “WE SAY #NEVERAGAIN,”  Reporting by the Parkland Student Journalists.”

The day of the interview was the day after another mass shooting – this time in California at the Borderline Bar and Grill. You can imagine how raw Falkowski and Garner felt when we spoke. We talked about why they asked the students to write these essays, what the kids learned about journalism from the event and its aftermath, and how they see things in these kids that the rest of the world can’t begin to understand.

In December, the Parkland’s March For Our Lives activists were chosen as finalists for the 2018 TIME Magazine Person of the Year. Melissa Falkowski and Eric Garner give us a little insight into why. The book WE SAY #NEVER AGAIN will give you a lot more.
