A left leaning science ethics podcast
Synopsis: The POC2 Podcast is a monthly podcast hosted by Karel, Pruthvi and Sehher, three women of colour in STEM. In short it is a left leaning science ethics podcast. The hosts discuss the reality of being an underrepresented group in what is commonly a very cis-het-white-male field and suggest ideas on how to navigate it effectively without sacrificing your personal wellbeing.
In addition, each episode suggests practical improvements that universities and research groups can use to make science more inclusive and this is all supported by tailored evidence referenced in the shownotes (with a transcript for those hard of hearing).
Season 1 can be found below! Season 2 has been funded by The Royal Astronomical Society and will go live 12pm GMT 1st Febuary 2021!
