Lesbians’ hair game is unmatched, of course, and Jess Silver’s mullet is one of the best of the best.

In this Odd One In teaser, Jess gives us a glimpse into what it’s like being the most stunningly coiffed scientist on campus.

Jess is the co-founder of Silverwell Farm and a 34-acre Queer Land Project just outside of Olympia, Washington. The Project is home to about a dozen hardworking queers and a handful of children. Jess and her landmates are raising pigs, building yurts, and tapping trees for Bigleaf maple syrup. But that’s just her homelife.

At her day job, Jess is an Ecosystem Services Analyst with Stanford University and the University of Washington. And while her hands-on life on a communal farm might be a stark contrast to the domestic lives of her academic colleagues, it’s Jess’ hair that’s the most obvious marker that she’s an outsider making her own way as a scientist and scholar.

Odd One In’s second episode sharing Jess’ journey in DIY baby-making, climate change researching, and anarchist queer farming is coming soon. Subscribe to our ROCK PAPER RADIO newsletter to join our curious crew and to be the first to know when new episodes drop.

The song you heard in this podcast teaser is Little Green (Alt Take) by Wax Lyricist.
