Emily Graslie is host of The Brain Scoop, a popular YouTube channel that showcases the work of scientists conducting ongoing research and evaluation about our world. How this information is summarized and distributed can have a great impact on our societies. What are some ways in which journalists and other science communicators are able to retain audience focus without marginalizing the oftentimes complicated work of practicing scientists? Emily will provide examples of how she details complex information in short, digestible videos without dumbing down the content for a general audience.
