What is a SciPod?

Scientists are becoming increasingly aware of their responsibility to communicate science to a much broader and diverse audience. Moreover, given the significant change in the way information is disseminated and accessed, people want more from academic institutions and industry than ever before.

It is now widely accepted that broader science communication is a fundamental aspect of a scientist’s career and certainly a criteria for most new research grants. While many do recognise this, it can be a challenge to find the time and do it effectively.

In a recent survey 75% of people said they would choose to listen to an audio book than read a text book and 50% would choose to listen to an audio than watch a video. SciPod captures the Audible generation and the modern phenomenon of learning at pace and learn while multitasking.

We have the solution. SciPod is an audio book communication service for science and technology. Each SciPod is a 12 minute audio book in plain language format, covering an original scientific paper.

My very first podcast

The team at SciPod read our paper and came up with a very nice summary of our work. I now have my very first podcast about my work on statistical solutions for small data sets. With many thanks to SciPod for making this possible (I can only wish my accent was like this!)

I think SciPod is a perfect communication tool for every scientist and university lecturer

Our SciPod supports our journal paper and attracts an additional broader international audience to listen and get to know more about our work and results. I was very happy with the professional and fast production team. Our research now has an opportunity to reach and connect with more of our peers, colleagues, students and the general public both locally and internationally. I am excited about the possibilities this has created, and I highly recommend SciPod if you want a professional scicomm service that delivers real impact and. Listen to the audio
