Title: Getting Your Message Out with Podcasting
Author(s): Roger Peng*
Companies: Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Podcasting has emerged as a popular medium for communicating a wide variety of stories and content. It is particularly well-suited for communicating statistical and data science concepts, as its medium- to long-form nature allows for in-depth discussion and explanation. Unlike video, the technical barriers to podcasting are minimal, but adoption of podcasting as a communications tool amongst data scientists remains low. I will talk about some of the lessons learned from developing and operating two podcasts (Not So Standard Deviations and The Effort Report) with over 100 episodes each. I will discuss what needs to be considered when starting a podcast, particularly within an academic environment, and how one can incorporate it into an overall professional portfolio.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
