But Dr. Nancy Knowlton knows that when people are presented with a huge problem without a solution, it leads to apathy instead of action. We partnered with Earth Optimism Alliance in this special episode to answer the question "why hope?," and to hear some beautiful success stories from around the world.

Inclusive Research Communication
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

1: Anger management
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.
