Are you a bench scientist or a student of Science transitioning to science communication (SciComm)? Or are you a science enthusiast who’d like to know what it takes to be a pro at communicating science? 

SciRio’s got you covered! SciCommSouls: The Life of a SciCommer is our brand new Show where we unravel the journey of an Indian Science Communicator (SciCommer) every episode. Along the way, we pit stop at various stages of their life and ask our SciComm Souls to ponder over what bought them there and share it with us. A chat show with Science Communicators, because, why not!

No path is devoid of hurdles, especially when every science communicator has to etch one on their own! Watch our guests discuss their unique approach on how to become a science communicator. Also, listen to them talk about their challenges, roadblocks, bumps, and speed breakers and what made them stick to Scicomm despite all the uncertainties and difficulties of the still-developing field.

If all of that sounded serious – worry not! We have in-store for you fun-filled segments on our show to balance it out! Ah, yes, that’s going to be a surprise. Join us to find out what that is.

Prepare yourself a hot cup of coffee (or whatever your favourite beverage is) and join our brand new show SciCommSouls on LinkedIn and YouTube Live.

Who knows? After knowing the successful journeys of our guests, you might unlock ideas, and find yourself embarking on your own journey of becoming a Science Communicator. 

TL; DR: What is SciComm Soul, the Show?

I am the Founder and Managing Editor of SciRio, a digital ecosystem for science communicators who want to communicate science to people who are non-experts in any fields of science. After stints as a Research Associate at the Indian Institute of Science and Centre for Human Genetics working on Cancer Research and Developmental Biology, I shifted gears to communicating science and become an entrepreneur.

I established SciRio to support science communicators in networking better, finding appropriate training and resources, and ultimately provide unexplored opportunities to science communicators.
