Limited podcast series: Science with a #SwissTouch

This month, swissnex San Francisco shares a limited-release podcast series, Science with a #SwissTouch. The series pairs Swiss and US-based science storytellers, journalists, and others to explore current topics in science communication. The series was recorded at the Swiss Touch table during the World Conference of Science Journalists (WCSJ) in San Francisco, part of the successful international Alpine Bid to bring WCSJ 2019 to Lausanne, Switzerland. The recordings served as our on-site SciComm Studio event for October 2017.

Special thanks to This Wachter, who produced the introductions and assisted the recording setup at WCSJ.

New episodes are released on Tuesday and Thursday each week via Soundcloud.

SciComm Studio

Science with a SwissTouch is part of swissnex San Francisco’s mission to promote science communication and storytelling in the USA and Switzerland.

The SciComm Studio is swissnex San Francisco’s monthly meetup for lovers of science seeking a community to experiment, explore, and connect around science communication and public engagement. Hosted by swissnex San Francisco at Pier 17, these meetups create a space for our community to cultivate science communication skills. We inspire and challenge participants excited by science to share their knowledge through storytelling and interactivity. It’s a win-win: exchange knowledge while developing a toolkit for scientific outreach.

The Pier 17 Science Studio has support from the Exploratorium, Bay Area Science Festival, TED speakers, museum professionals and art-technology curators. The Science Studio “SciComm Studio” events take science communication out of the box and into the streets. If you find yourself involved in any area of scicomm, or if you are interested in being a part of the movement, look for more events in 2018.
