Podcast your research! www.vivavocepodcasts.com
Viva Voce is a new and exciting online platform that was created by one of our SEED PhD students – Gemma Sou in IDPM. Viva Voce promotes and supports PhD students, PostDocs and Early careers researchers in the Social Sciences, by providing a platform for setting up “short, sharp and engaging podcasts about yourself and your research”.
Viva Voce aims to ensure that early career researchers are not overlooked or lost among other social media sites, by levelling the playing field to a Podcast and a short and sweet profile, with links to up to two publications, personal websites, Twitter ID, and email. In this way, the podcast acts as the ‘taster’ that encourages people to click on your links and learn more about you and your research. Podcast profiles are categorised by 3 keywords and discipline so that you are visible on 4 pages, which gives greater exposure for you and your research.
Viva Voce has received great support from within the University of Manchester University. Setting up your own Podcast feature is simple. Check out the new website www.vivavocepodcasts.com or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
