My study of science podcasts featured in Nature and published in Royal Society Open Science

I’m very pleased to say that I was interviewed about my research into science podcasts as part of a ‘Career Feature’ article by Roberta Kwok for Nature. The article features insights from several excellent science communicators, so I am humbled to be in such esteemed company!

This came hot off the back of my study on science podcasting being published Royal Society Open Science the week prior. Link/DOI: https://doi.org/10.1098/rsos.180932 I am really pleased to get this work published as it is my first piece of solo work and the peer-review was very thorough. I hope it’s of interest and helpful to the science communication community.

There is so much to keep track of, that I decided to come up with this helpful check-list! I hope others find it helpful.

A dainty list of Science Web-comics

I love web-comics and I love science; so here is a list of science-themed web-comics. 
Honourable mentions (i.e. not quite science-y enough)
I'd like to make this list comprehensive with time, so you know some science web-comics that I've missed, then please email me at L.MacKenzie1@Leeds.ac.uk or leave a comment below and I'll add them to the list.
