ISC Presents: Entering the world of the podcast

Always keen to expand its communication offer to ISC Members and the broader community, the Council experimented with podcasts for the first time in 2020.

You can listen and subscribe to the podcasts on Spotify, Apple and Google platforms.

ISC Presents aired in February 2020 with its first series, Women in Science, featuring seven podcastsrecorded at the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

The ISC’s inaugural series discussed gender equality in science systems through the voices of six women researchers who shared their achievements, challenges and aspirations. The series shone a light on the effort to empower, connect and inspire present and future generations of female scientists. The second series focused on ‘Big Thinkers’, with five podcasts amplifying the voices of Global Science TV through a different medium.

The experimentation paved the way for a podcast collaboration with Nature in 2021, as part of their Working Scientist podcast on the topic of diversity. The resulting series of six episodes featured voices from the ISC network and highlighted the ISC’s work on combating racism and discrimination in science. The next in the ISC Presents series will be Science in Exile as part of the initiative with the same name.
