It was with Dr. Soskolne's involvement in AIDS research in 1982, that his public speaking engagements escalated. Between 1982 and 1989, Dr. Soskolne was engaged in about 1,000 media interviews on radio, television, and the print media, primarily to do with HIV/AIDS, but also to do with the hazards of tobacco use. He was regarded as a sober and credible source. In fact, it was Dr. Soskolne who, in 1987, provided North America's first televised condom demonstration, with condoms visible on the screen.

Today, Dr. Soskolne is seen in the media, from time to time, on the topic of global ecological change in relation to public health, as well as on Canada's role in international trade in asbestos.
