Science Interviews – Creating a podcast with Broad Science

Are you interested in communicating science in new and creative ways?

Learn how to Interview your fellow researchers, and in turn, be interviewed about your own scientific research in 3 interactive workshops.

Broad Science, an organization based at CKUT (McGill’s community radio station), will facilitate 3 interactive 90-min workshops to create a Macdonald campus podcast.

Participants’ will explore key elements of communicating science through interviews and audio journalism. Skill development will include:  creating an optimal interview (i.e., wording, scripting and building rapport), in addition to gaining radio production and recording skills.

In the third session, students will record their interviews and get a glimpse of the editing/mixing process. Broad Science will finalize the post-workshop editing to create and broadcast the podcast. All participants will have content to share on social media and add to their knowledge translation activities for upcoming grants and scholarships.
