Friday round-up on crowdCaster

crowdCaster is a new platform that allows you to record and listen to short audio clips. Like a podcast with ADHD, you might say.

We’re excited to announce that we’re putting up round-ups about science in South Africa on crowdCaster, a new platform for short-form sound-bites. It’s like a podcast with ADHD!

Every Friday, we’ll try to post a short summary (the format allows a maximum clip of 140 seconds)  of what we covered during the week and why it’s cool. It’s a great way to consume media – you can build channels of your favourite ‘casters, or just put together a quick playlist to listen to.

This week, we talked about green diamonds, what puffadders smell like (nothing), and whether crayfish care about climate change (they don’t). You can check out our latest ‘cast here. Or just sign up and start your own ‘cast about cool SA science =)

SciBraai, a proudly South African NPO dedicated to science journalism, communication and outreach. SciBraai began on Heritage Day 2013 - Anina Mumm and Engela Duvenage in 2013 launched the website, scibraai.co.za, to feature stories about South African research, technology and innovation, and the people behind the discoveries. This blog welcomes all South Africans to go behind the scenes of local science and exploration endeavors. It’s a place to share stories about the scientists themselves and the interesting, little-known activities that are often left out of research journals. A place to learn more about the stuff that makes South African science and its people tick. A place to feel inspired about what South Africans are discovering on home soil and abroad. Because local is lekker, no matter what language you use. SciBraai's following has grown in the past years, and we are now on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We've also begun organising real-life braai's where we share round-the-fire stories about South African science and scientists.
