It's podcast time


With podcast listenership on the rise across the region, Bahrain-based podcast STEMCast is hoping to use the relatively young medium to cultivate curiosity about science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEM/STEAM).

Around 15 to 16 per cent of the adult population in the UAE and Saudi Arabia tune in to a podcast at least once a week, with 93pc of people preferring them to other media.

Latifa Al Khalifa, assisted by Mary-Rose Candare, wants to bring inspirational STEM stories to these listeners and encourage them to explore a future in the field.

Latifa explained, in an interview: “The idea is to spark a conversation about STEM by bringing together students, educators and professionals who are making a mark in STEM fields. This way, we put a face on college courses and career titles. We feel it is an effective way to humanise STEM and STEAM – make it about people, their stories and their dreams.”
