About

Imagine watching the Discovery Channel and getting to ask scientists and science communicators, like Jane Goodall or David Attenborough, a question as you are watching their documentaries and having them answer you back in realtime. With Scicomm Monday, you can.



On my weekly live stream broadcast, Scicomm Monday, I share the amazing science and outreach of my fellow scientists and science communicators. Each week I have guests from all over the world share their science and science communication (scicomm) with the Scicomm Monday audience. Other scientists/scicommers have Twitter/Facebook accounts, blogs, podcasts, YouTube channels, etc., but Scicomm Monday is the only weekly scicomm live streaming broadcast that fosters live audience participation. 



Through the power of Periscope, audience members can actively engage with the broadcast participants, by asking questions live on air. While the bread-&-butter of Scicomm Monday is the in-studio remote interview with our guests, we also broadcast live from various locations with interviewees and we get our boots dirty through our #FieldworkLive series, where the audience can see science research as it happens live.



My main goal for Scicomm Monday is to help facilitate discussion on science topics both between fellow scientists and between scientists and non-scientists, while making it fun for all involved. By fostering a relaxed environment, the audience is excited to ask questions and help drive the direction of the broadcast.

My future goals for the broadcast are to be able to crowd-source the entire Scicomm Monday budget, so any scientist, scicommer, university, agency, or organization can have Scicomm Monday come out for in-person interviews and #FieldworkLive broadcasts at no cost to them and so I can continue to devote the time and equipment to making a quality broadcast for both the audience and the guests.

Follow along on Twitter ( @ScicommMonday) for updates on upcoming broadcasts. If you are a scientist or scicommer that would like to be on a future broadcast, please DM me at the @ScicommMonday handle via Twitter.


About me: My @WildlifeBioGal science research and science communication work can be followed on multiple social media platforms (TwitterFacebookPeriscopeYouTubeSoundCloudSnapchat, and more). 



My scicomm work has been featured by The Verge



and the American Fisheries Society.



I am a big advocate for scicomm and will be co-chairing multiple scicomm symposiums at various conferences throughout 2017 (#IAGLR2017: #SocialGreatLakes; #AOSSCO17: #TheTweetingBird; #TWS2017: #CalloftheScicomm).

If you have any questions about Scicomm Monday, my Great Lakes mute swan research, or my scicomm, you can reach me via the social media platforms mentioned above or my website:  www.wildlifebiogal.com
