For this episode about science communication I had a fantastic conversation with Upulie Divisekera, the Australian molecular biologist and accomplished science communicator who co-founded “@RealScientists”. She shares how she got access to platforms with large audiences, and lessons from her SciComm experiences: that you should use storytelling and never underestimate your audience.

If you are on Twitter and like to learn about science and the people behind it, you probably know @Realscientists, the Twitter rotating curation account. There, real-life scientists sign up to talk about science and their daily lives for a week at a time; showcasing the diversity of scientists, and breaking the trope of academics as an elitist group.

I've been using a tool to find keywords out of blog posts from our site. And one of the podcast episodes just produced the keyword "shit". SciForProgress photo

A clinic in England advising parents to give their autistic children industrial bleach to drink or to be put into their rectums with a kitchen funnel.

Julie Chaplin is a podiatrist.

Controversial but I kindof agree with this *if* you only want a career in academia. Basically all you need for that is as many high IF papers as possible. Otherwise go for it because that stuff gives you a bunch of skills for non academic jobs and can be interesting and enjoyable

Being black is not a health risk factor. Rather, the social and structural inequalities (i.e. racism, discrimination, concentrated poverty, neighborhood segregation) create race-based health inequalities. Thank you @Keisha_Bentley! #SDOH #healthequity
