DC – 2019 AAAS Meeting, Sci-Mic Stage

April 7, 2019 by Dr. G

This was a type of session I had never seen at a scientific conference before – a podcasting stage! Throughout the meeting, several different podcasters did live interviews and recorded them for posting to their series (see the listing). I was able to watch the Direct Current podcast interview from the Department of Energy (podcast home page) and a few others. But the discussion I most enjoyed (which was more of a presentation and sharing of audio clips than an interview) was from the Wall Street Journal and their series The Future of Everything.

On their website, WSJ describes The Future of Everything with the following: “Discover what comes next with this in-depth look at how science and technology are revolutionizing the way we live, work and play. Join host Jennifer Strong every Wednesday as she crisscrosses the country to interview the leaders and luminaries reshaping our world.”

The series did a mini-collection of three podcasts themed around The Price of Climate. Check out each of these episodes, each about 20 minutes in length.

 

The Price of Climate: Is Commercial Fishing in Hot Water?

The first one is great for my oceanography course, but all three I’m going to have my students in my climate course listen to. I hope the Wall Street Journal continues to record additional mini-series such as this one to further communicate the connections between society/economy/climate. I hope to see more sessions/stages like this at more conferences!
