About this event
Stem Cells @ Lunch Digested is a weekly public-facing podcast featuring prominent scientists from the stem cell field being interviewed by staff and students from the Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine (CSCRM) at the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine. To date the playlist counts 135 episodes with 24,000 plays. From its inception in 2016 by a trio of researchers running a biweekly seminar, the podcast has evolved in terms of processes, teams and technology. In this session, Public Engagement Officer Jess Sells and PhD students Ella Hubber and Emily Read will share their experiences of managing and producing the podcast through its ever-changing journey. What has worked well? What challenges have they faced? How did they adapt during lockdown?
