The Conversationalist Podcast - Episode 3: 'Volcanoes and Citizen Science at the Royal Society'

Listen to the podcast here, on our soundcloud.

You're invited to join our science-themed cocktail party, where experts on the history of science tell us stories, fun facts, and random anecdotes about the development of scientific knowledge from the 19th century to today!

In this episode, we talk to Royal Society Librarian, Keith Moore, about how the Royal Society crowdsourced information about a 19th century volcanic eruption. Keith takes us on a tour of the Royal Society archive, and at the end of the episode, Chris Thorogood, Head of Science & Public Engagement at the Oxford Botanic Garden, tells us about botanicals and booze.
