The HPS Podcast, titled "The HPS Podcast - Conversations from History, Philosophy and Social Studies of Science," serves as a platform for leading scholars in the fields of history, philosophy, and social studies of science (HPS) to discuss contemporary topics, aiming to make complex scientific discourse accessible to a general audience. Hosted by Samara Greenwood and Carmelina Contarino, the podcast releases episodes weekly and covers a broad array of subjects within the HPS domain.

Episodes feature discussions with scholars from various academic fields such as philosophy of science, psychology, social science, and anthropology. Topics explored include the philosophy behind modern scientific practices, such as the Open Science movement, replication debates within psychology, and causal explanations in biology. Specific thematic areas like the philosophy of the geosciences, indigenous science, and public scientific controversies are also examined, highlighting the diversity within scientific disciplines and practices.

The podcast delves into historical and methodological contexts, offering insights into figures like Isaac Newton and exploring larger historiographical questions using counterfactual scenarios. It frequently features dialogues on how collaboration, disagreement, and epistemic practices shape scientific progress and societal understanding. In addition, episodes often address the implications of scientific research on public health, well-being, and misinformation.

By presenting these themes, the podcast illustrates the intricate relationships between scientific endeavors and broader societal and cultural contexts. Discussions also tackle issues of diversity within academic research, aiming to uncover and address potential epistemic injustices. The podcast not only illuminates current scientific debates but also encourages listeners to see science through a multifaceted lens, considering its evolving practices, historical roots, and societal impact.
