We teamed up with The Genetics Society to launch Genetics Unzipped – a podcast telling stories from the world of genes, genomes and DNA.

The podcast is reaching a global audience of many thousands and was awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the 2019 British Society for the History of Science Ayrton prize for digital engagement

We also created short videos and podcasts for the Galton Institute’s 2018 and 2019 annual research symposia, extending the reach of the meeting far beyond the meeting venue to thousands all over the world.

“The Genetics Society is delighted with Genetics Unzipped. The podcast is always fascinating, as well as being informal and entertaining, and, most important for us, always gets the science spot-on. It strongly supports the science communication and engagement goals of the Society.”
