Starting a SciComm Business with Chris Cloney

Starting a SciComm Business with Chris Cloney

On this episode, I interviewed Dr. Chris Cloney, a combustible dust fire and explosion researcher who created a six-figure online business from his blog. 


My podcast tends to focus on wildlife and conservation, so why am I interviewing an explosion researcher? Because Chris is amazing at science communication and all of the principles behind Dust Safety Science, GradBlogger, and now the Self Tenure Community can help you spread messages of conservation and even make a living from them. 


Successful messaging and education are the key to conservation. We cannot separate all wildlife from humans, and even if we could, our impact on the planet (e.g. climate change) would still affect wildlife populations. So much of conservation is about changing human behaviors. 

More specifically, we’ll talk about:


  • How Chris makes tens of thousands of dollars each month with one of his blogs 
  • How to turn your blog into a business
  • Science communication in general
  • Blogging vs social media
  • What to blog about
  • Overcoming publishing nerves
  • Handling negative comments from the Internet
  • and MORE!
