The British scientist Dr Chris Smith, world widely known as a ‘’Naked Scientist’’ has visited Croatia.
Thanks to his radio show and podcast, Dr Smith has become one of the most influential communicators of science. When he does not record his one-hour audience-interactive science radio talk show, he works as a professor at Cambridge University as well as a guest professor at Murdoch University in Perth, Australia.
As part of his visit to Zagreb, Dr Smith met with students at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (PMF) and at the Ruđer Bošković Institute. He also visited the high school MIOC where, according to his words, was very impressed by how much high school students are interested in science and how much they understand it, especially in English.
Created and launched in 2001 by Chris Smith, the Naked Scientists was one of the first podcasts to exist and is now one of the world's most popular science shows, achieving over 50 million programs downloads in the last 5 years.
Working with broadcasters internationally including the BBC, the ABC (Australia), Primedia (South Africa), Talk Radio Europe and Radio New Zealand, the professional audiovisual media created by the Naked Scientists team attracts a global audience of more than a million people each week.
