Womanthology podcast episode 21: Soapbox Science – With special guests Dr Nathalie Pettorelli and Professor Seirian Sumner, Co-founders of Soapbox Science

Welcome to the twenty-first episode of the Womanthology podcast.

Womanthology is a digital magazine and professional community powered by female energy and ingenuity. We champion equal recognition and reward for everyone, sharing opportunities, ideas and a deep pool of collective wisdom – supporting each other to be unstoppable.

The theme of the show is Soapbox Science. Soapbox Science is a very special initiative that is very close to my heart as I have worked with its founders pretty much since Womanthology began. They give women in science a platform to share their professional passions with the public.

I have the great privilege of speaking with the co-founders of Soapbox Science, Dr Nathalie Pettorelli and Professor Seirian Sumner. They talk about taking science to the streets ten years ago, but then because of COVID Soapbox Science has moved online for the moment. We’ll be hearing about how the initiative has spread by word of mouth and taken the world by storm.

I will also be talking us through the written stories in the new issue.

Thank you for listening and remember, if you want to support what we do, please share the link for the show on social media, subscribe and leave a review in your podcast app.

Join us for the next episode, which celebrates International Women in Engineering Day 2021. For now, take care and stay safe.
