Citizen Science Podcast

Citizen Science is a podcast from SciStarter. This show will spotlight the many different ways that individuals and communities are exploring and changing the world around them through public participation in science. Episodes will feature conversations between project developers and volunteers, with subjects ranging from climate change to biodiversity to Alzheimer’s research to community science projects focused on environmental justice and much more. These conversations will showcase the important relationships that make these projects successful, what kinds of problems and questions these projects are trying to address, and how you can get involved.

Our co-hosts are Justin Schell, a librarian and media producer, and Caroline Nickerson, the Managing Editor of SciStarter's Syndicated Blog Network and the Community Manager of Citizen Science Day.
