Molly Robson on Podcasts during the Pandemic
Joining us today is Molly Robson - a researcher, writer and photographer based in Wellington, New Zealand. Molly recently completed her Master’s thesis at Victoria University of Wellington, which explored how listeners engaged with podcasting during the pandemic, and sought to understand the affective dimensions of the fast-growing medium. Molly's paper, “Intimacy in Isolation: Podcasting, Affect and the Pandemic” was published in the latest issue of the journal Perspectives in Biology and Medicine. She is currently working for an environmental organization as an advisor in science and policy communication.
