Check out our first "PubCast"!

"Do you care about the river" is the first in a series of PubCasts (a take on publication podcasts), audio-book style recordings of peer reviewed scientific research, read to you by the authors. PubCasts are an ongoing project to experiment with science communication and making research more accessible and digestible to both scientific and general audiences. We were inspired to start PubCasts via our own love of podcasts, demystifying science and the role of researchers in science, and the power of the human voice. We hope you enjoy and welcome feedback via Twitter at @ak_fiscience or @Coastal_Routes
