In this episode, Roger Hudson chats about his ‘First-Person Science Communication’ project with hosts Yousuf Hasan and Nick Handfield-Jones. FPS Communications is a fast-growing podcast and YouTube channel whose aim is to improve science communication in a publicly accessible way. FPS does so by encouraging collaboration and conversations between scientists and the public. Authors of recently-published manuscripts join in and discuss their research. What makes FPS Communication effective in its outreach goal is the entertaining and detailed format: visual aids, animations, selected texts are shown in-sync with the discussion. This makes FPS helpful for communicating to the public complex ideas in scientific research.
