The Body of Evidence, a podcast hosted by Jonathan Jarry and Christopher Labos, has covered what we know about health and medicine with an eye toward rigour and plausibility for nearly a decade. During this virtual, intimate, interactive workshop, co-hosts Jarry and Labos will explain the different podcasting formats that science communicators can use, share tips on interviewing experts, and reveal ways to improve the quality of a science podcast. They will also go over their process on how to judge if a study is reliable enough to be shared with the public.

The event is free, but registration is required as spots are limited.

Registered participants will receive a Zoom link the day before the event.

This workshop is part of a series organized for Projected Futures, an international graduate science journalism summer school. It will run this year from July 31 to August 4. Apply now.
