How can scientists and science communicators be more engaging and effective when discussing climate change? Science communication expert Dr Sam Illingworth joins me to discuss the results of The Climate Communication Project (theclimatecommsproject.org).
Physical oceanographer David Marshall joins me to talk about creativity in both science and music, how we represent the effect of small-scale circulation in large-scale climate models, and his pathway into science.
Ocean/ice modeler Kaitlin Naughten joins me to talk about her love of computer programming, her pathway into science, and how processes at the ocean/ice interface are critical for understanding climate change.
Pete Davis joins me to talk about measuring turbulence under ice shelves, doing fieldwork in Antarctica, the intensity of the peer review process, and his pathway into science (with special guest Christian Buckingham).
PhD student and champion boxer Ella Gilbert joins me to talk about her careers in both climate science and competitive boxing.
The audio is still a little quiet - sorry about that. I'm working to make that better in future episodes.
A conversation I had with oceanographer Dave Munday about his pathway into science, dealing with uncertainty, what it takes to finish a PhD, and dealing with the craziness of conferences. We briefly talk about whether or not conferences should be replaced by virtual meetings - an important but difficult question.
This is my first attempt at a podcast. I think it went well overall. We had a genuine, honest conversation and discussed some important ideas. The recording is a little quiet because I was only had one microphone, but it's mostly audible. Dave and I started running out of energy after about an hour, so it gets a little slower at that point. But for a couple of amateurs, I think it's alright. Enjoy.
Just to be explicit - the thoughts and opinions expressed here at not necessarily those of our employers! In this podcast, Dave and I represent ourselves only.
