Science communication is a fundamental step of the scientific process, yet access to training in such skills is inequitable across universities or organizations. To further the Interfaces of Global Change program's emphasis on this important facet of research extension and impact, one group of IGC students created the I Can SciComm podcast, a freely available podcast that explores the best practices of science communication through interviews with experts from diverse disciplines. Invited guests included the Associate Director of the Center for Communicating Science at Virginia Tech, a Specialist in Natural Resources Policy at the Congressional Research Service, and a Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Texas Tech University. The 5-episode series is meant to provide a foundational toolkit for individuals interested in enhancing their science communication skills.
