Here's all about us
The SciencePOD Story
SciencePOD is the brainchild of Sabine Louët, a seasoned science journalist and editor who brings 20 years of experience in science publishing. The company is headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, only a stone’s throw away from the Irish Sea. Keeping in line with this marine theme, SciencePOD’s parent company, Armor Media Ltd. – a digital publishing company – borrows its name from the Breton language word for the sea (armor). After all, it is the sea that physically connects Ireland with the rest of the world, and thus the name is a metaphor for our global remit.
