In this transcript, Alice Fleerackers interviews Rackeb Tesfaye, founder of Broad Science. Tesfaye shares her experience as a graduate student in neuroscience and how it led her to start Broad Science with a critical lens on how science is produced, a focus on bias, and inclusivity in research. She also discusses the success of the initiative and its impact on the community. Tesfaye emphasizes the importance of intersectionality in science communication and how audio can be a powerful tool for amplifying marginalized voices and telling nuanced stories. She also shares how Broad Science uses feedback from their listeners and community to create content, making the production process an iterative and collaborative one.
