The Forum Logo

"The Forum" is ISGP's bi-weekly audio podcast in which your hosts break down the debates that occurred at past ISGP conferences. Each episode puts today's hot-button issues in the context of your life by translating the topics discussed by experts into an informal conversation. It's the information you want about food safety, infectious disease, and climate change, presented in a way that puts you in-the-know without requiring you to break out your old college textbooks. The Forum is truly where today's science comes to socialize.

Meet Your Hosts

Conveniently, the hosts of The Forum are both ISGP and social media enthusiasts. With plenty of experience in science, as well as constructing 140-character commentaries, they are the ones who condense pages of ISGP conference reports into the concise yet thorough dialogues that you hear during podcast episodes. The hosts encourage you to communicate with them via social media using #ISGPForum
