Yale Climate Connections
We were disappointed to learn that AAAS has discontinued Science Update, effective immediately. We are adding a new feature, Yale Climate Connections, to replace it. Climate Connections is a daily (M-F), 90-second radio series that aims to help listeners understand how climate change is already impacting our lives and what diverse people and organizations are doing to reduce the associated risks. The series “connects the dots” between climate change and energy, extreme weather, public health, food and water, jobs and the economy, national security, and the creative arts, among other themes. Climate Connections will air weekdays at 49.5 minutes after the hour during Newshour.
Big Picture Science
KSPB has added Big Picture Science to its line up. It’s a show that does more than interview top scientists and technology innovators. Its themed episodes connect those latest research ideas to identify emerging trends – and why they matter. Seth Shostak (the scientist) and Molly Bentley (the science journalist) use smart and humorous storytelling. They won’t just keep you’re attention, they’ll grab it.
But there’s more. Are you a doubting Thomas? They separate science from pseudoscience – and facts from the phony – in Skeptic Check, their monthly episode devoted to critical thinking.
So think bigger. Big Picture Science. A one-hour weekly radio show heard on Saturday at 11am, with an encore Sunday at 7pm.
