Speaker: Christopher Joyce
Hosted by: Devathi Parashuram (Current Conservation Executive Editor) and Ed Gallo (SCB BoG VP for Education and Outreach)
We’ll talk about the media ‘eco-system,’ how we work, and what we’re looking for. We’ll talk about how you can help us get things right, and what to do if we don’t. We’ll talk about clarifying your message and making it compelling. And we’ll talk about whatever else interests you media-wise.
Bio: Christopher Joyce knows how to tell a incredible story. For 28 years, he worked at NPR seeking out stories from some of the world’s most inaccessible places. These stories can be heard all over NPR, from All Things Considered to Morning Edition. He’s covered a wide range of scientific topics, from volcanoes and hurricanes, to tagging giant blue-fin tuna, climate change and the artificial insemination of an African elephant. He was also an editor and correspondent for NPR’s Radio Expeditions, and has written two non-fiction books: one on forensics and human rights and the other on economic botany and ethnobotany. For the past 20-plus years, Joyce has also worked with the COMPASS organization as a trainer in seminars and workshops on science communication for scientists.
