talking science radio imageTalking Science the science radio show developed by the University of Aberdeen Public Engagement with Research Unit and Shmu FM.  

Talking Science brings a mix of news, interviews and regular features including science you can try at home and a weekly sound of science competition.  

Researchers from across the University are interviewed on air, and there will also be a focus on topics being discussed at forthcoming Café Scientifique sessions and other events. 

The new Talking Science show is presented by the Public Engagement with Research team working with staff and students across the University.

The show airs at 2pm each Tuesday and is available to listen again online.

Talking Science is supported by a science engagement grant from the Scottish Government aimed at encouraging widening access with hard to reach groups and rural communities. Shmu FM broadcasts to the seven regeneration areas in Aberdeen and is at the forefront of Community Media development in Scotland, supporting residents in radio and video production, traditional and on-line publications, music production and digital inclusion. The organisation also supports other disadvantaged communities, both geographic and communities of interest, with an employability and training arm and a programme for offenders, both pre and post release.

Talking Science is the second University based show to feature in the Shmu schedule, as the Growth Matters programme is hosted by Cruickshank Botanical Gardens curator Mark Paterson.

If you would like to get involved with the programme or suggest topics for the team please get in touch.
