New ACS podcast debuts with science news for broad general audience

WASHINGTON -- The American Chemical Society (ACS) Office of Communications has launched a podcast that will make cutting-edge scientific discoveries from ACS journals available to a broad public audience at no charge.

The podcast, Science Elements , (http://chemistry.org/science_elements.html) describes research reported in ACSs prestigious suite of 35 peer-reviewed scientific journals and Chemical & Engineering News, ACSs weekly news magazine. Those journals, published by the worlds largest scientific society, contain about 30,000 scientific reports from scientists around the world each year. The reports include discoveries in medicine, health, nutrition, energy, the environment and other fields that span sciences horizons from astronomy to zoology.

Those discoveries improve peoples lives, and Science Elements will make that information more widely available. The podcast draws on an Office of Communications product, PressPac, which initially was developed to assist science journalists in researching and reporting news.

The podcaster for Science Elements is Steve Showalter, Ph.D., a chemist at the U. S. Department of Energys Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Showalters work at Sandia focuses on the design and development of new batteries. As an active member of the ACS since 1987, I view these podcasts as part of a broader commitment to improving public understanding of chemistry, Showalter said. He also works toward that goal as a member of the ACS Committee on Public Relations and Communications and as a councilor for the Central NM Section, ACS.

Podcasting is an increasingly popular way of accessing news, information, and entertainment content from the Internet. The term was derived from Apples iPod, a portable digital audio and video player, and broadcasting. Podcasts allow users to subscribe to a feed and receive new files automatically wh
