This episode orig­i­nal­ly aired on Decem­ber 7, 2020: Sci­ence is cool. You may agree, since you’re lis­ten­ing to a pod­cast that talks a lot about sci­ence of the envi­ron­men­tal vari­ety. But, sci­ence can be hard to under­stand, and research can be hard to access. Here at Ter­ra Infor­ma, we asked our­selves, how could we help track down, and break down, new sci­en­tif­ic dis­cov­er­ies for our lis­ten­ers, and make it fun to lis­ten to and easy to understand?

In this week’s episode, we talk about a recent sci­ence com­mu­ni­ca­tion work­shop the team did with CJSR Pod­cast Coor­di­na­tor and Ter­ra Infor­ma alum­ni, Chris Chang-Yen Phillips. Then, we dig into sci­ence — what is it? How does one… well, do it? Final­ly, we prac­tice our sci­ence com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills as we explain the sci­ence behind a very pecu­liar trait of an equal­ly pecu­liar animal.
