Talk Science to Me
In this project, a series of short podcasts will be employed to educate the public of underlying scientific concepts that are integral in research and can be easily connected to real-life examples. Health sciences will constitute a majority of the content for these podcasts because this subject is relevant and most easily conceptualized. This podcast will be co-hosted by an individual with minimal scientific background (Chase Urias) and a scientist trainee (Jesse Cochran). Furthermore, I will be seeking advice and mentorship from current podcasts on campus (ie. ScienceFM, the Short Coat podcast, and Science for Sixty). The podcast will be marketed through social media, listservs, and physical advertisements. Podcasts will be published on Stem-o-Sphere and other streaming services. The success of the project will be readily monitored through long- and short-format surveys at the end of each podcast and google analytics.
