The Naked Scientists are a group of critically acclaimed researchers from Cambridge University (UK) who strip down science to its bare essentials and produce award-winning BBC radio shows to promote and communicate research to the general public. During this live podcast the Naked Scientists will engage leading science communicators from the U.K. and U.S. in a lively debate about how to translate science to diverse international audiences, the biggest challenges in talking to the public about science, and what skills are necessary to be a successful science communicator. The audience will be encouraged to contribute with Q&A throughout the workshop
