We hear it all the time: "Listen to the science!” So why aren't more people paying attention — and what can we do about it? On Science+Story, we talk with leading scientists, researchers and communicators on how they get the world to listen to them — and how we can all better spread what science wants to us to know.
Daniel Swain: The Climate Scientist-Communicator
The UCLA climate scientist on why his position as a scientist-communicator is so rare.
Todd Reubold on Journalism vs. Research Comms
Ensia's publisher on how to cover climate change for people who don't want to hear about it and why Greta Thunberg is so much better at communicating science than most scientists.
Samantha Montano: Being a Disasterologist
The disaster science and emergency management scholar on why she's so good at public engagement, what sucks about how the media cover disasters, and why she hid her age and gender when she first started on Twitter.
Natalia Mehlman Petrzela on Public Scholarship & Owning Your Ideas
The New School historian on when to turn down a media opportunity, why corporations need historians on staff, how she preps for a podcast and why female scholars need to own their ideas publicly ASAP.
Not another podcast with scientists telling stories! Uh, nope.

Bob has a real gift for drawing out what each guest has to share that's most interesting and relevant to science + story. His questions are insightful and his guests so candid that I feel like I'm listening in to a private conversation with two masters of their craft. Highly recommend!
