Science Friday

I have been listening to the NPR program Science Friday on the radio for years and more recently catching their podcasts. It is a weekly science talk show that's very accessible for non-science folks who have an interest in real science.

It is broadcast live over public radio stations nationwide Fridays from 2-4 pm Eastern time as part of NPR's 'Talk of the Nation' programming.

Expert guests join the host, Ira Flatow, to discuss science topics that are in the news and take questions from listeners during the call-in portion of the program.

You can browse their big archive by topics and key in on topics that interest you.  I happen to like the stories on the history of science, paleontology (one of my childhood career choices), astronomy and the crossing of science and technology.

Their site also has many interesting and quirky science-related videos.

Crows are among only a handful of species on the planet
that have been shown to use tools...

This is one in a series of posts about programs about What I Am Listening To on the radio, online or via podcasts.
