On this episode, Mark Simon is joined by Dr. Siri Carpenter, the co-founder of The Open Notebook, a science journalism organization that helps writers with every aspect of their work - from pitching articles to understanding terminology and data and much more.
Siri talked about how her career as a science writer, and what led her and Jeanne Erdman to start their website, and the resources her site provides. She shared the traits that make a good science writer, discussed the challenges of being a science writer, the idea of writing for Dr. Fauci's aunt, and using narrative to articulate scientific information.
She also explained what The World’s Finest Science-Themed Peeps Diorama Contest is (you have to see it to appreciate it!), offered advice to others interested in creating a journalism community, and picked multiple organizations that she wanted to salute.
