This week we talk to freelancer Dr Jamie Gallagher about career development in science communication. Jamie has had a varied and exciting career, starting with small activities on the side of his PhD to freelancing as a performer, trainer and consultant. We explore what there is to learn from Jamie’s experience, as well as hearing how he managed to get star trek actors wearing some of his enamel pin badges!
Later, we discuss training in science communication. Should we be training more researchers to communicate science or do we need more science communication professionals? How are new science communication courses changing the professional landscape? And is there such a thing as too much training?
