Undark is delighted to announce that it is relaunching its podcast to extend its prizewinning, feature-length narrative journalism to a new format. We'll be taking a short hiatus over the summer and be back in the fall to continue our mission of illuminating the places where science intersects — and sometimes collides — with our everyday lives as a 25-minute audio documentary. Scientific questions and challenges, after all, are woven deeply into our politics, our economics, our culture — and they are animated by a wide spectrum of competing values and interests. Our goal is to present rich, narrative-driven audio stories of science as it manifests amid that push-and-pull of human society.

A fantastic monthly program

A lot of science journalism can be dry or complicated, but Undark is sophisticated, intelligent and accessible. The stories are unique and deeply researched, and the podcast version of the site provides a monthly window into topics around the world -- soil poisoning from Vietnam-era ordnance in Southeast Asia, efforts to remove fish from a lake in Canada -- that illuminate and inspire. Excellent work.
