WeAreSTS logo for the podcast series


Episode library for WeAreSTS, an official podcast of UCL Department of Science and Technology Studies (STS). WeAreSTS includes project work from STS students and staff. The host and producer is Professor Joe Cain.


Two Types of WeAreSTS Episodes


REGULAR episodes explore research or teaching themes that are part of Science and Technology Studies (STS). Some episodes will be interviews about active research projects. Other episodes will support STS subjects in teaching or public engagement. We also have career-focused episodes interviewing STS alumni about life after university: how did they make that transition into their working life, and what advice do they have for those thinking about studying with us.


BONUS episodes will showcase special projects. They’ll allow listeners to hear expert discussions about topics as diverse as science policy making, science in the media, philosophy of information, history of dinosaurs, sociology of science, and history of technology.


Podcasting with Purpose

Our overall goal is to help with WeAreSTS is to help teachers, applicants, and influencers answer questions about our subject:


  • – What is STS?
  • – What does learning in the subject involve?
  • – Why would I want to do this, too?
  • – What do people do with an STS degree?
  • – Is this career direction for me?


WeAreSTS is available for listening on Apple Podcast, Spotify, Stitcher, SoundCloud and most other podcast listening apps. You also can find us on Libsyn.
