Welcome back to Sciencecast: Climate Change Series!
In our fourth episode, we talk with Dr. Sharon Dunwoody, professor emerita in the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and focus on science communication and journalism. Together, we discuss communication’s role in telling the global climate change story, including social media, fear tactics and the upcoming presidential election. Dunwoody is an expert on the construction of media messages about climate change and other scientific issues and how these messages are received by individuals.
Sciencecast is the Daily Cardinal's science podcast series. This semester's series focuses on climate change. Twice a month, we will explore various facets of climate change through interviews with UW experts.
