Policies

Our Policies reflect our aim to produce ethical content for the Astrophiz astronomy podcasts which reflect the fact that minority and under-represented groups and individuals need to be heard so science communities can benefit from the richness that diversity brings to the table.

Diversity Policy: We always strive to promote researchers at all career stages, and take particular pride in promoting those who may be under-represented in the Astronomy-related communities according to gender, orientation, age, race & nationality.

Confidentiality Policy: When invited to attend conferences we absolutely respect the privacy and confidentiality surrounding both researchers and their research. We are aware that many journals have strict guidelines about pre-publication of results in the media. We never publish without prior approval of individuals cited in our episodes.

Harassment Policy: We attend conferences with well constructed, communicated and enforced harassment policies. We delete interviews with guests who contravene harassment policies of conferences and institutions. 

Unsponsorship Policy: The Astrophiz Astronomy podcast is self-funded and commercial-free. We will never accept sponsorship from dodgy organisations/corporations.
Note: Potential Sponsors like NASA, CSIRO, CAASTRO, ICRAR, Big Pharma, The Illuminati, The Bilderbergers, The Club of Rome – just send us $$$, and we’ll promise not to mention your name 😉

Our historical/hysterical 1st episode was launched on 28 June 2016.
Published fortnightly, usually runs for 40-60mins.
