I am a successful educational podcaster and podcast consultant based in the San Francisco Bay Area. As an expert interviewer and communicator, I have profiled everyone from street performers to US Senators to astronauts. I aim to show that podcasting is more about story, presentation, and technique than fancy gear or tech toys. I am the creator, producer, and host of three podcasts: the critically-acclaimed Boston Behind the Scenes, the award-winning Current Science & Technology Podcast for Museum of Science in Boston (which I hosted for more than two years), and the Simply Science video podcast for the education division of the journal Nature. I’m also a former host of the JNCI Podcast for the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

Presenting on Podcasting
In addition to regular talks at the Museum of Science and presentations to audiences in corporate and classroom settings, I have spoken at Podcamp Boston 1, 2, 3 and 4, Barcamp Boston 2, and Podcast Academy at Boston University.
Adam Weiss brought a rare combination of skills to our podcast productions: the storytelling sensibilities of a professional broadcaster, married with a keen understanding of the latest audio technology. He is the consummate professional. I would highly recommend Adam to any organization or business thinking about getting into podcasting.
