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.

Mónica Feliú-Mójer: on "ciencia para hacer patria"
7 days ago
A neuroscientist turned science communication expert, Dr. Mónica Feliú-Mójer understands all to well that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to public engagement with science. A Puerto Rican native, she is a prominent advocate for culturally relevant approach to science communication to increase access to the scientific endeavor and ensure that science serves society at large. In fact, the title of this interview — "ciencia para hacer patria"— loosely translates to the idea that science is for nation building. She has put her communication philosophy and expertise to use serving as the Director of Communications & Science Outreach for Ciencia Puerto Rico and the Associate Director of Diversity & Communication Training for iBiology. We had the incredible privilege of catching up with Mónica at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Austin where we got the chance to pick her brain about how she found science in Puerto Rico, how she has given back to her community through her bilingual science communication and mentorship endeavors, and why she believes science belongs to everyone, regardless of who they are or where they come from.
