Episode Thirty-One – On Science Communication – An Interview With Dr Jesse Shore
SORRY FOR THE DELAY – Libsyn upload was completely unhelpful and I did a ‘work-around’. MP3 of the episode is here!
Welcome to Episode Thirty-One! This week, after attending a workshop on evaluation, I had the chance to talk to the President of the Australian Science Communicators, Dr Jesse Shore!
He is the brain behind the science communication consultancy company Prismatic Sciences (based in NSW). His experience includes working at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, coordinating public events, and science festivals. Dr Shore has served or is serving on state coordinating committees for National Science Week. He is also on working groups relating to the recent Inspiring Australia Report, which we discuss briefly during this interview.
