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 =)
