I got an email today from a college student interested in becoming a science writer, asking how I got into the field and how it works. I get these emails from time to time, and in the past I've replied with an email of my own. But it occurred to me today that it would be better to direct them a podcast. In November, when I visited the University of British Columbia, I gave a talk at their journalism school about how I became a science writer, and what it's like for me today. It may not be interesting to people who are interested in science, rather than the business of science writing. But if you're curious about this peculiar way of life, check it out. This link takes you to the University of British Columbia on Itunes. Scroll down to find the podcast with my name on it.
