The Rhymbosome

This is Tom McFadden (formerly “the Rhymbosome”). He raps about science.

Full disclosure, Tom McFadden was my TA for behavioral biology in college. A friend of mine edited his videos.

McFadden, who claims that he never takes himself seriously as a rapper, strung together wordplay infused lyrics to make science memorable. He proceeded to get a master’s degree in science communications.

Now he teaches 8th grade biology and keeps his eyes peeled for fresh science rappers.

All I can say is, apparently we’ve come a long way since Joyful Protein Synthesis.
