Snacks 21--Bill Snyder!

"Vanderbilt...a 'thought leader,'" "collateral discovery," "unfettered science..." "little bleeds in the brain..." Ah, communication: Science Communication! Listen up! This S4theB! features a talk with Vanderbilt University science communications wizard Bill Snyder. It's another lunchcast, ya'll, recorded at a very hot lunch spot called Bosco's, in Hillsboro Village, a quaint and bustling commercial district at the edge of the Vanderbilt be prepared for some seriously wild background "ambiance" as we talk about all kinds of things: what science communication is all about, why it's important to nurture communication about science, what it's like to work in a big organization like Vanderbilt, what it took in the way of preparation for him to get to the point where he could help facilitate communication about science...and who knows what else!? I can tell ya that the new website for Snyder's Lens Magazine (designed by scientist JP Cartailler) is just totally awesome and something that science educators, students, and anyone interested in science should bookmark just as soon as it's released! I'll be sure to publish its location as soon as it's out of beta! Wow! I successfully used two correctly punctuated "its/it's" iterations in one sentence! Bill Snyder's expertise must be infectious! Also present for lunch was another wizard, Jeff Hazelton, Tech Coordinator for the CSO. Really talented, really good at what he does, and really good company at lunch. Look for a future S4theB! featuring him talking about the upcoming release of his newly designed (but uhuhuhhhh, not yet released) Vanderbilt Center for Science Outreach website.
