Science for the People

The podcast and radio show Science for the People offers listeners "a long-format interview podcast that explores the connections between science, popular culture, history, and public policy." Based in Edmonton, Canada and intended for general audiences, this podcast shares conversations with scientific researchers and science writers covering the full spectrum of science topics, both present-day and historical. Recent themes include household microbes (and other critters), the fascinating science of krill, genetic testing and its associated ethics and technology, and a discussion of plastic in the oceans (recorded with a live audience). With more than 500 episodes in its archives (most around an hour long), this long-running show originally launched in 2009 under the name Skeptically Speaking before broadening its focus to become Science for the People in October 2013. As of this write-up, Science for the People is produced by Rachelle Saunders, a web developer by day who also hosts the show, along with Bethany Brookshire, Anika Hazra, and Marian Kilgour. Episodes can be streamed on the show's website and those interested can also subscribe via Spotify, Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, and other platforms.
