Dr Steve Cross is head of public engagement at UCL in London, and a science communicator extraordinaire.

We talk about public engagement, the open mic nights he has founded (Bright Club, Science Showoff and Museums Showoff), and the importance of naked mole rats.

Science communication always uses the phrase ‘Science is fun’ ... which having been a scientist ... I don’t remember everyone coming into the lab singing like they were in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
