This Week in Science - online science radio program

Hi All,

Wanted to take a moment to introduce our radio show This Week in Science.

This Week in Science (TWIS) is an irreverent look at the week in science and technology news. Each week we discuss the latest events in science and technology in a way that is entertaining yet informative. The show is hosted by Kirsten Sanford, a PhD candidate in neuroscience; and Justin Jackson, a smart-alek part-time washing machine salesman & full-time quantum physics aficionado.

TWIS has been radio broadcasting for over five years on KDVS 90.3 FM at the University of California, Davis. The show is also available online via archived MP3s at our website http://www.twis.org as well as through 'podcasting' on iTunes.

For those of you not familiar with it, podcasting is a convenient way to receive the online audio broadcasts since you only need to subscribe one time after that the latest episode of the broadcast is automatically downloaded to your computer so you can listen to it at your convenience. Heres a link with instructions on how to receive the TWIS Podcast for any who are interested: http://www.twis.org/podcast_subscribe.html

If you have any questions, comments, or recommendations please contact either myself or the show producer Kirsten Sanford at kirstenATthisweekinscience.com. We try to reply to every email we receive and welcome all comments and criticism.

Hope you enjoy the show.

Cheers,
Marshall Clark

Hi Carson (great nick - lol),

Very glad that you enjoyed it. We've been doing the show for over 5 years and we're all unpaid volunteers - so it's definitely a labor of love for us.

Take Care,

You see, more proof that the world is really out of whack sometimes.

Hip educational programming like yours goes unpaid and yet the electromagnetic spectrum is flooded with detritus.

What I liked about your show was that Kirsten and Justin obviously do more background homework on their topics then you get at the usual science news sites. I frequent a bunch of sites on almost a daily basis, so I actualy heard/read about most of the studies that they discussed. However, they knew more about the studies than can be found in the typical news stories, which made the podcast interesting for me. I actually learned a few things!
