The South African Research Chair in Science Communication produces and funds the independent podcast series The Academic Citizen  since 2022.

The aims of the podcast are to:

  1. Create a space for wide and deep discussion about key issues animating higher education in South Africa, Africa, the global south and beyond.
  2. Create a space for interdisciplinary exchange for academic researchers and educators.
  3. Help researchers, educators and scientists to tell their stories, and listen to and learn from each other’s insights and experiences.
  4. Create a space for science (in all forms) to be communicated in order to serve social justice (broadly conceived).

A full list of the episodes can be found on our website or on major streaming platforms.

From 2023, we can be commissioned to create a podcast about your research project. If you’d like to explore making a podcast of your own to serve your research project, contact us with your proposal. Listen to our advert for more information.
