María Ruiz Carreras is a communication researcher. She received a grant for a podcast called “Estudios Críticos Animales.” There will be interviews with scholars and activists and also episodes exploring particular topics. She writes:

In Spanish speaking countries there is a lot of great research and activism being done in the field of Critical Animal Studies. But there are still two important communication gaps: one between researchers and activists and another gap between what researchers discover, what activists do, and what reaches society. The purpose of this project is helping to bridge these gaps, making the scientific knowledge and the activist experiences accessible and creating lines of communication amongst researchers, activists, and the general public.
