Science for the People

When you think of sci­ence com­mu­ni­ca­tion, you might think of TED talks or muse­um talks or video talks, or… peo­ple giv­ing lec­tures. It’s a lot of peo­ple talk­ing. But there’s more to sci comm than that. This week host Bethany Brook­shire talks to three peo­ple who have looked at sci­ence com­mu­ni­ca­tion in places you might not expect it. We’ll speak with Mau­na Dasari, a grad­u­ate stu­dent at Notre Dame, about mak­ing mam­mals into a March Mad­ness match. We’ll talk with Sarah Gar­ner, direc­tor of the Pathol­o­gists Assis­tant Pro­gram at Tulane Uni­ver­si­ty School of Med­i­cine, who takes pathol­o­gy instruc­tion out of the lab and on to Insta­gram, @passion4pathology, com­plete with dis­sec­tions. And we’ll hear from Vaugh­an James, a grad­u­ate stu­dent at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Flori­da, who decid­ed to find out if hear­ing about sci­ence at a sci­ence fic­tion con­ven­tion actu­al­ly, well, made peo­ple like sci­ence any more.
