Recruiting Volunteers for Podcast

** 𝐑𝐞𝐜𝐫𝐮𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐕𝐨𝐥𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐞𝐫𝐬 **
Biopatrika is a volunteer-run online science communication platform focusing on different aspects of Indian Science. As we enter the tech era where there is a lot of scientific jargon not easily understood by everyone. More than ever, there is a need for science enthusiasts to participate in the programs involved in disseminating information in layperson language. We aim to fill this gap by bringing young researchers, science illustrators, content writers together to bring the simplified version of recent discoveries and career stories. To achieve this aim we interview researchers, scientists and entrepreneurs to communicate their stories and ideas behind what they do and how their work affects society. Biopatrika aims to provide due credit to researchers for their hard work and provide a glimpse of career journeys to motivate young generations.

We aim to bring new science communication initiatives and we need your support to achieve collective aim.
