Science journalist Anna Rothschild on fighting family pressure

Anna Rothschild knew she wanted to be a scientist at an early age, but her family of artists didn’t always understand why. They didn’t get her fascination with obscure and gross science—but then she launched her YouTube show, “Gross Science”, as a part of PBS Digital Studios. Watch her tell a story about how she got her start as a science journalist despite not knowing how to make videos. “Unfiltered” is a video series from The Lily and the Washington Post that asks YouTubers to share a story their followers haven’t heard before.
