We work with leading academic experts, early career researchers and students, research centres and projects. We help them to showcase and share the real-world impact of their work through podcasting. Here are some of the podcasts we have produced:
The Rights Track
This podcast aims to get the hard facts about the human rights challenges facing the world today and to get our thinking about human rights on the right track. The podcast has just secured funding for its SEVENTH series and its presenter and producer are co-authoring a book about what has been learned from the conversations they have had with experts, practitioners and human rights advocates around the world in 60 episodes or a podcast which has had 30,000 downloads.
The ELSA Podcast explores how information collected in the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing is used in research, practice and policy to help us to better understand what happens to us as we age and how we can live longer, happier, healthier lives. The Podcast is produced by the team behind ELSA which collects information from people aged 50+ on people’s physical and mental health, wellbeing, finances and attitudes around ageing. Early episodes explain the background to the study, how it works and how it can be used. Later interviews focus on how findings from the study are being used by Governments, charities and others to help older people thrive. Series 2 is currently in production.
Remember Your Body
Remember Your Body is a podcast that helps researchers to understand the body as a source of knowledge and how it can help them in their research. Series One of the podcast is presented by Eline Kieft, a medical anthropologist, who combines her passion for anthropology and its qualitative research methodologies, with her experience as a dancer and movement facilitator.In a series of accessible interviews to support researchers to be both productive and healthy, Eline talks to academics who pioneer the body as a research tool in anthropology. The podcast is produced as part of the NCRM-funded research project, Research with a twist: A somatics toolkit for ethnographers.
Linking our Lives: England and Wales since 1971
This podcast showcases research that uses a study of a million people to look at some of the major social issues of the last 50 years. We talk with researchers working with data from the ONS Longitudinal Study, which is based on the Census and officially the largest nationally representative longitudinal dataset in the UK. In conversations of 20-25 minutes, we discover how researchers are making use of data collected from people in England and Wales every 10 years since 1971, what they have found and what it means for policy, practice and society. Produced by the ESRC funded Centre for Longitudinal Study Information & User Support (CeLSIUS) project team at UCL and presented by Research Podcast’s Chris Garrington, the podcast shows the impact of the ONS Longitudinal Study and provides insights into how others might tap into this fantastic resource.
The increasing gap between rich and poor, exacerbated by the recent financial and economic crises, is a key concern for us all. DIAL helps us better understand the causes and consequences of those inequalities, providing new evidence and insights into the complex ways in which they play out over the lifecourse. In a series of accessible audio interviews focusing on research emerging from the NORFACE funded Dynamics of Inequality Across the Lifecourse (DIAL) programme, the DIAL Podcast talks to researchers across Europe who are getting to grips with inequality and trying to create a fairer and more equal society for all.
This podcast series interviews the authors of a special report outlining findings from the the Millennium Cohort Study, which has been tracking the lives of nearly 20,000 children born in the UK at the turn of the century. Researchers tell us what they have found as the children turn 11 and what parents, policymakers and practitioners should know.
This very special series of podcasts helps to share the work of the LSE Gender, Power and Inequality Commission, which draws on LSE research and external experts to provide theoretical and empirical knowledge to inform public and policy debates in the UK concerned with understanding and addressing the complex and multidimensional character of inequality and power imbalances between women and men.
This podcast interviews researchers and representatives from charities and think-tanks who are making use of the data being produced from this longitudinal household survey in their policy-relevant research and activities. It also shares information about the rich and valuable data available to academics, policy analysts and business.
This award-winning podcast showcases research produced by the internationally-renowned team of academics at the Institute for Social and Economic Research at the University of Essex.
Researchers discuss the background to their work, before outlining their key findings and their relevance for policy makers and wider society.
This podcast has been short-listed in the UK Podcast Awards. It features interviews with researchers about current innovative methodological thinking and research which has been funded by the National Centre for Research Methods at the University of Southampton.
When Professor Sharlene Hesse-Biber from Boston College wanted to promote her new book Waiting for Cancer to Come, we worked with her to create a fantastic podcast which enabled her to discuss her research project on the BRCA gene mutation and her own personal story and views around genetic testing and breast cancer.
We worked with Professor Todd Landman, a leading human rights expert at the University of Essex to produce a pilot podcast focusing on his recently published research. This led to the development of The Rights Track which is about to produce Series 7.
This podcast series covers the latest research findings from the team at the International Centre for Lifecourse Studies at UCL. From the health and development of young children to the relationship between work and our lives and the impacts of aging. Important, timely research of interest to all.
