What is CAPEcast?

CAPEcast is the podcast from the CAPE team where we have an in-depth discussion with those with whom we collaborate, getting into the knotty issues behind academic-policy engagement and exploring our learning and insights we are discovering about what works, how, why and when.

What are CAPEcast lites?

CAPEcast lites are short podcasts from the CAPE team exploring particular concepts in academic-policy engagement. These are designed as conversation starters rather than definitive pieces and we invite others to share their understanding of concepts – let’s have a conversation!

CAPEcast lites are coming soon to a podcast player near you.
