Unpacking the magic box that is science


LiSTNR and the Royal Institution of Australia (RiAus) have today launched their second co-created podcast, The Science Briefing, which delves into the science of everything to explain the why and how.

The Science Briefing is designed to appeal to younger audiences, showing that science is fun and something we all should be comfortable with.

The twice weekly podcast series will unpack the magic box of science stories we hear and read about, with episodes covering what mad cow disease means for Australia and the amazing, never-before-seen space images from the James Webb telescope and how it works.

Hosted by Dr Sophie Calabretto and scientist-journalists from Cosmos magazine, the podcast blends science and news, to explain what’s happening and why.

Dr Calabretto says “I am so excited to be hosting this podcast. This is such an amazing opportunity to show how scientific concepts are relevant to all the things that happen in the world.”

SCA Head of News and Information Melanie Withnall says “The Science Briefing will explain the science behind what is happening in the news with simple explanations from some of Australia’s best young science communicators – told in a fun, engaging and approachable way.”

RiAus Executive Director Will Berryman says “The betterment of our community comes from getting all of us more comfortable and informed on the science in our lives. Science should be for all of us.”

The Science Briefing is available from today and twice weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays from wherever you get your podcasts and the LiSTNR app.
