Thursday, 7 September 2017 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

Simon Torok, part of the team of science communicators at Scientell talks about ways to distill and summarize technical information about extreme weather events and climate change for non-scientific audiences.

Thursday 6:00pm to 6:30pm
This show casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week we mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
