We’re sending Pint of Science out across the airwaves and present our researchers via podcasts.

From the safety of their homes, our scientists bring their science to yours. Our podcaster and radio friends will be interviewing our scientists through the month of May and for the first time in Australia, Pint of Science will have our own podcast series, Pod of Science. Get your headphones, grab your cat and snuggle up with the blankets as we discover more about what’s going on around us.

Pod of Science

Over 11-13 May, we’ll be launching our first podcast series with three back-to-back episodes interviewing our Pint of Science speakers. Find out about these amazing researchers with Camille Thomson, as she tackles the big and small questions, and finds out what scientists are up to these days.

You will soon be able to hear the podcasts here, and make sure to follow our social channels to learn when the latest episodes become available.

For the last few years' festivals, we've reached out informally to podcasters and radio presenters to partner with us to either record our events live or interview our speakers. While we're not doing any live sessions, we're glad to announce that the following podcasts and radio stations have still invited Pint researchers to feature in their podcasts during the month of May. We will update a list here as the podcasts are confirmed. We'll also share them on our socials, so make sure you're following us (FacebookTwitter / Instagram) to catch a Pint speaker this month.
