In the era of widespread and often unverified information, science can start to be considered as just another voice in the room. Given that our mission is to provide high-quality scientific analysis for a wider audience in an easy to understand manner, podcasts can be an invaluable way of getting the key findings from your article across to the broader public.
A great example of how engaging and professional talks raised a topic’s or person’s profile is professor Brene Brown’s TED talk, which has been viewed over 41 million times and made her a global superstar.
