Democracy Works: Bridging Academia and a General Audience (ft. Jenna Spinelle)

This episode features Jenna Spinelle, co-host and lead interviewer for the show Democracy Works. Produced by the McCourtney Institute for Democracy at Penn State and WPSU Penn State, this show seeks to answer questions about what it means to live in a democracy: they get into the structure and history behind this foundational framework.  Jenna shares her experiences and insights into bringing dense academic materials and conversations to life for an audience that includes academics and nonacademics alike. Her co-hosts are academics as are many of her guests. Her role, as she sees it, is largely about being a bridge builder between the academy and the general public. Along the way, she helps others cross this divide as well.  This is an excellent episode for any creative who aims to bring complicated ideas to a wider audience.  EXPLORE THE SHOW Visit for all episodes of the show.  LEARN MORE ABOUT JAY Subscribe to his newsletter, explore his course for podcasters, or watch and listen to all of Jay’s shows and projects at  LEARN MORE ABOUT CASTOS 3 Clips is a Castos Original Series.

REPLAY: Discovery's Curiosity Daily: How to Consistently Delight Listeners (ft. Ashley Hamer and Cody Gough)

We’re hard at work on new episodes of 3 Clips, so here’s an oldie but a goodie — one of our most popular episodes… We’ve got a dynamic co-hosting duo: welcome Ashley Hamer and Cody Gough of Curiosity Daily. A daily, yes, daily (!), podcast about science, which is part of Discovery. Host Jay Acunzo gets into great topics with Cody and Ashley, starting with, how, just how do they put out a well researched and fact-checked show every single day? This episode also covers topics of performing on the mic, how these two make a co-hosting relationship work, how to communicate science to a general audience, and more.  And to that last topic, being a science communicator to a wide audience, Ashley had a great thought to add after we recorded, so hang out past all the credits and even past the closing theme music to hear what she had to say. It’s worth it!
