New Series Announcement! | Natural News from The Field Museum


In 2015, Field Museum scientists
published 226 books and papers and had their work cited more
than 10,000 times. They studied specimens from
every continent on the planet, including those in the ocean
and others in outer space and in the process discovered
148 new archeological sites and 160 new species to science. We lent out in excess of 42,000 specimens to
other museums and research institutions, and had 727 visitors come here to help
answer their big research questions, and you probably didn’t even here
about a fraction of this. It’s not your fault! But I wanted
to do something about it. For the last 36 years the museum
has circulated an internal newsletter called The Natural News, where
scientists write in about expeditions, new species, and other research findings, and we want to bring all of that to you right here
on The Brain Scoop every other week. Don’t worry, we’re gonna keep
the regular content coming. The first episode of The Natural News
airs in two weeks. Stay tuned.

  1. Lovely one cut shot! Also, exciting news (though I admit, I at first was scared because Natural News is also known as this awful pseudoscience website xD!)

  2. Such a pretty set, so many things to see! Love your jacket too btw.
    And I am also curious about the new show of course.

  4. Emily, this is awesome! I was hoping for a series like this, and who better to host it than our own taxidermy poster girl?

  5. Outstanding on the news letter becoming a part of your shows. Oh and yeah, very bitchen long camera shot. You and the crew just continue to impress me.

  6. Wow that's great news!! I'm so excited to hear about Nature News πŸ™‚ As well, you have the coolest job (coming from someone who has a similar job, hehe).

  7. Congratulations on expanding into a new kind of content! I've been watching the series since the start, and have always loved the way you make the information so exciting to learn about. You're work has inspired me to try to start my own video series on the biotech research community in Seattle, and I just wanted to thank you for putting such awesome content into the world, and I can't wait to continue seeing where the show goes in the future!

  8. Isn't Natural News one of those bullshit spewing sites that acts like everything manmade is bad and they are the only ones that have the "natural" cures?

  9. It makes me happy that the comments section was full of praise for the camera person. Good job too to whomever decided to go with a tracking shot. Really gets across Emily's point that the Field Museum is place that goes places and does things. aka being awesome.

    Excited for the new series!

  10. Scientific American has this page where it gives excerpts from the issue of 50, 100, and 150 years ago. You might think of doing the same for a dozen, two dozen, and three dozen years ago.

  11. I was worried you'd put it on some other channel, thanks for not doing that! The Brain Scoop is just such a fantastic name.

  12. I didn't know i needed this until now! Sounds fascinating, I can't wait. Also I love your hair, Emily. You look lovely. πŸ™‚

  13. I've been looking forward to this ever since you mentioned it in your Q&A at VidCon, and it looks like it's gonna be great! There is so much awesome science going on all the time with low public visibility, and I'm excited to have a window into some of the neat stuff going on at the Field Museum. On a more technical note, I just have to ask: How did you pull of that long, incredibly smooth hallway shot?

  14. I like the concept, but you should be aware that there's already a pseudoscientific "news" organization called "Natural News." By naming your new series the same thing, there is potential for brand confusion. Even if there aren't copyright issues, you may want to avoid this potential association with such a disreputable source.

    Just 2Β’.

  15. As a very amateur photographer, that shot looks impressive to me. Did the cameraperson use a dolly or a steadicam setup? How many takes did it take?

    Hooray cool new series. I'm looking forward to it. πŸ™‚

  16. Uummm I hope you guys know there's already a Natural News and its a "news" website full of pseudoscience, anti-vax nonsense and other BS. I don't want that to negatively affect this channel.

  17. Yay, more exciting science stuff to follow!
    That blazer is very serious and mature and somehow not very you. It should at least have some brains on it πŸ˜€

  18. While I really enjoy your YouTube posts, I often wonder what else you do at the Field when not making videos. What position were you originally hired for, and what is your position now?

  19. So confused how you could have 2 unlikes on this – very excited!!! So glad to see you doing everything you can to increase the accessibility of leading-edge scientific research to the public πŸ˜€

  20. Cannot wait for the 9th of Dodecember! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    This is a super-cool idea btw, thank you lots in advance πŸ™‚
    Also, is the internal newsletter just that? Is it available to Joe-public, or as part of a membership/subscription thing? I'm probably more likely to consume it via scoop-tube anyway so, yay, looking forward to it! πŸ˜€
