After a male colleague took credit for her work, Bonnie Garmus channelled her rage into the unforgettable protagonist of Lessons in Chemistry, Elizabeth Zott – a chemist-turned-celebrity cook who surreptitiously teaches housewives to subvert the status quo.

With her debut, Bonnie became a multimillion-copy bestselling novelist, whose novel has also been adapted into an Apple TV series starring Brie Larson. This 1960s-set comedy has inspired readers worldwide with its message that it’s never too late to change everything – including yourself.

Join Bonnie to chat science, sexism and success in your sixties, with host Nicole Abadee.
