Live Show: Licking Toads For Science at CitSciOz18!

You know what? If you ask nicely, it’s amazing the things people will volunteer to do. Or at least that's what some of the world's leading thinkers on citizen science reckon!

We took a trip to the Australian Citizen Science Association Conference to find out more, including: Are scientists’ jobs in danger? Can you hide things in easter eggs? Should you stop children licking toads? Why should you take your camera with you when you poo in the woods?

Awesome guests in this episode: 
- Ellie Downing (Secretary of the Australian Citizen Science Association), 
- Mendel Wong (Co-founder of CitizenScience.Asia and the Zikathon), 
- Stuart Harris (discoverer of the Peacock Spider!) and
- Associate Professor Caren Cooper (author of Citizen Science: How Ordinary People Are Changing the Face of Discovery, and founder and moderator of @IamCitSci)
