This Study Shows is the new podcast from Wiley. The everyday world goes about its business ignoring research. But we need research – it can help us find big answers to the big questions our world is facing.  By transforming how we tell the story of science and building a foundation of trust and empathy, we can create a world where research captures the hearts of everyone. Hosted by Danielle George and Mary-Ann Ochota, each of our six episodes will ask the tough science communication questions: how? why? and so what? Subscribe to this feed now and you won't miss an episode.
If “facts are facts,” why don’t they hold up against skepticism or doubt? Maybe because we need to find the emotional truth inside all of that data. Featuring Mona Chalabi from The Guardian US, Tali Sharot from University College London, and David A. Kirby from University of Manchester.
I do not think that word means what you think it means! When there’s a gap between what we mean and what is understood, it’s time to think about the words we’re using. Featuring Martin Glynn from Birmingham City University, science communicator Soph Talks Science, and Theo Sanderson from the Francis Crick Institute. 
Ideas are the “once upon a time” of the research process. If we think of research as a story, and scientists as the heroes, will we be able to build trust? Featuring Cailin O’Connor from the University of California, Irvine, Friederike Hendriks from the University of Muenster, and Will Storr author of The Science of Storytelling.
Communicating COVID-19

Communicating COVID-19


In this special episode, we’re looking at the emotional impact of science communication during COVID-19. From the media’s responsibility to understand what they’re reporting to the best communication strategies to influence the public’s behavior, we’re talking about how research can have an impact.
Who tells the stories of science and who gets to learn from them? We’ve spent this year reckoning with inequity on all sides of research communication. From barriers that stop underserved communities from engaging with research, to biases that can exclude researchers from sharing their work. Listen to Dr. Sunshine Menezes, Executive Director of the Metcalf Institute at the University of Rhode Island, Professor Chris Jackson, Imperial College London, Sibusiso Biyela, a science communicator and columnist, and Lewis Hou, founder of Science Ceilidh discuss inclusive science communication.    And keep learning about these issues with the help of the resources below:  Inclusive Science Communication, special issue of Frontiers in Communication Metcalf Institute’s #InclusiveSciComm symposium Ciencia Puerto Rico Reclaiming STEM Rightful Presence in STEM Science Ceilidh Broad Science
You never know who will ask the question that inspires the next great discovery. Research can help solve big problems, and there’s no way to do it but together. Featuring Rhiannon Morris from Unique Scientists, Stephanie Dolrenry from Lion Guardians, and Stephan Lewandowsky from the University of Bristol.
Governments, publishers, and the public, oh my! We’re on a winding road of impact, and if we want research to influence real-world change, we’ve got to find friends along the way.  Featuring Kirsty Duncan MP, Canada’s Minister of Science and Sport, Jay Flynn from Wiley, and Valorie Aquino from March for Science.
After all these episodes, we hope so. But when you’re trying to do a million things, sharing your story can fall to the bottom of the heap. Featuring Henry Dick from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Jennifer Cutraro from Science Storytellers, and poster pioneer Mike Morrison. 
We're back for season two and we want to know how science communication makes you feel. Empathy is the name of the game this season, as we explore why research sometimes makes people angry, why emotional connections lead to greater understanding, and why we should never forget about hope. We've all had those frustrating conversations about whether or not the facts are the facts. Whether arguing over evidence feels like an interrogation or makes you feel like screaming into a pillow, our guests Naomi Oreskes, author of Why Trust Science, Rick Potts, Director of the Smithsonian's Human Origins Program, and Jim Hilbert, of the Expert Witness Training Academy, have tips to help you win over your critics. Presented by Mary-Ann Ochota and Professor Danielle George. Produced by Listen Entertainment.

Our hypothesis: when people have the chance to participate in research, they understand it better and trust it more. Do the secrets to a more engaged public lie with Kolbi Brown, of the NIH's All of Us program, or Els Baeten, a citizen scientist at Galaxy Zoo, or with Sarah McAnulty, the founder of Skype a Scientist? Presented by Mary-Ann Ochota and Professor Danielle George. Produced by Listen Entertainment. 
S2 Ep3: Speak up!

You're standing in the wings, waiting to take the stage and share your story and your research with the world. Are you scared? After talking with Liz Neeley, Executive Director of the Story Collider, Kat Kerlin, press officer at UC Davis, and Irene Robles, creator of PubHD, we think that fear will turn into excitement. Presented by Mary-Ann Ochota and Professor Danielle George. Produced by Listen Entertainment. 
S2 Ep4: Fun and games

S2 Ep4: Fun and games


Can laughter and research go hand in hand? Are creativity and imagination central to helping the public understand research? Dominic Walliman, author of Professor Astro Cat, Sophie Scott, neuroscientist and stand up comic, and Sathyaraj Venkatesan, a contributor to Graphic Medicine, are here to say yes.  Presented by Mary-Ann Ochota and Professor Danielle George. Produced by Listen Entertainment. 
S2 Ep5: Open sesame

S2 Ep5: Open sesame


Vulnerability gives us power. Sharing science openly while embracing failure and critique is what makes research strong. Listen to what Rackeb Tasfeye, founder of Broad Science, Chris Banks, Director of Library Service at Imperial College London, and Kathryn Sharples, Senior Open Access Director at Wiley, have to say. Presented by Mary-Ann Ochota and Professor Danielle George. Produced by Listen Entertainment.

S2 Ep6: Bright futures


The journey to change someone's mind is a long and winding road. It takes passion, resilience, and hope, as we learn from Juliana Chan, founder of Asian Scientist Magazine, Per Espen Stoknes, author of What We Think About When We Try Not To Think About Global Warming, and James Honeyborne, producer of Blue Planet. Presented by Mary-Ann Ochota and Professor Danielle George. Produced by Listen Entertainment.
S3 Ep1: The Buy In

S3 Ep1: The Buy In


We might think that science and money have nothing to do with each other, but whether it's video games, consumer DNA kits, or even the concrete we build with, the connections are everywhere. Listen to Dr. Mitu Khandaker, Dr. John Orr, and Dr. Jason Vassy explore what happens when research and commercial interests collide.

Whoever said knowledge is power was right. We look at what happens when evidence gets placed in the hands of local communities and the freedom it gives them. Hear Monica Ramirez Andreotta, the director of Project Harvest, Esther Ngumbi, the founder of Oyeska Greens, and Nigel Zhang and Yinuo Wang of My H2O discuss how their projects connect research and community.   We want to know what you think about This Study Shows!

Mary-Ann and Dan meet Dr Samuel Ramsey, the host of our new mini series This Study Shows: Spotlight. 
How do we get from a research article to an eye-catching headline in your local newspaper? Join Dr. Sammy (Dr. Samuel Ramsey) as he hosts our new This Study Shows: Spotlights and follows science communication in action.    In this episode, we're talking to Dr. Martin Fisher, the author of a face mask study that went viral during the COVID-19 pandemic and fed into conversation about whether masks were truly effective or not, and Sarah Avery, the director of the Duke Health News Office who helped bring this research to the media.
Sometimes a tiny change can have a giant impact. In this call-in episode, we hear new ideas to change the science communication game. From the pitfalls of rainbow maps to getting rid of PDFs, we speak to Matt Hall, Paige Jarreau, Alberto Pepe, Crystal Emery, Ngozi Erondu, and Chelsie Boodoo about all the things they would change.   We want to know what you think about This Study Shows!
