About This Show
As scientists, we find our research intimately tied to the state of science policy and funding in the federal government. As citizens, we want to be better informed about the governing bodies, agencies, and individuals who set the scientific goals for our nation. In this podcast, we bridge that gap, bringing you conversations with the finest minds at the intersection of science, policy, and advocacy.

Katharine Hayhoe: on the climate of climate communication
Spring has finally sprung — and with it, a new Science Soapbox episode! Stepping onto this month’s soapbox, we have one of our favorite climate scientists, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe. An atmospheric scientist at Texas Tech University, Dr. Hayhoe is known not only for her leadership in climate science, but also for her phenomenal outreach and communication work. She has effectively joined her identity as both an evangelical Christian and a staunch advocate for climate action to engage with communities that are traditionally thought to be skeptical of science. Her work is a testament to the power of bringing our full identities to our science and outreach efforts. We’ve been following Dr. Hayhoe on social media for years and were thrilled to chat with her about her approach to public engagement and how (and why) she finds hope in the face of our changing climate.
