As a tax-exempt non-profit organization, an important part of Alcor’s mission is to educate the public about cryonics. The final plank of our Mission Statement is: “Awareness and growth of cryonics by educating the public.” We have done that through one-on-one conversations, media interviews for radio, TV, and documentaries. Also by giving talks at conferences and online events and by giving tours. We have done very little with podcasts, with one or two recent exceptions – but those came to us rather than us approaching them.
Do you enjoy listening to podcasts? Do you think podcasts could be a productive venue for Alcor to educate a wider audience? And potentially to attract new members? If so, which podcasts do you think would have a good audience for Alcor?
Personally, I much prefer reading to listening, so I don’t pretend to know much about the podcast universe. Even so, to stir your brain up, here are some possibly-promising podcasts that I had either heard of or found with a search:
The Joe Rogan Experience
Stuff You Should Know
The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe
The Naked Scientists Podcast
The Science Show
Big Picture Science
Here We Are
Exponential View with Azeem Azhar
The WIRED UK Podcast
Would you recommend any of these? Or do you have better options? Do you have any connections with the hosts or producers?
As we look ahead to the near future – when we have the conditions in place for faster growth – we want to develop better knowledge of previously unexploited opportunities to have an informative and appealing cryo conversation. We want your input!
