Science: let’s take a look, on radio KTAL LP FM, Las Cruces, New Mexico:
I host an hour-long show each Tuesday at 12-1 PM, Mountain Time. Find it at 101.5 on the FM dial if you’re in Las Cruces, or stream it live on lccommunityradio.org or radioquetal.org.
I cover a great variety of topics in all the shows,, extending from many branches of science to engineering to math to implications for society. Guests appear about every other show.
I record each show, edit the audio into distinct segments (cutting it at station breaks), add some imagery, and created videos for YouTube.
Here are links:
- 5 December 2017: 3 segments, on why plants are green, risks, and plants vs. us & with us. The topics are much broader in the show but these are good index topics.
- 12 December 2017: 4 segments, on science at the Las Cruces Academy (two student guests), you make more heat than the Sun, more time with the students, and Smart(?!) Water, and very interesting science books
- 19 December 2017: 4 segments, on the nature of scientific progress…and cholesterol, more cholesterol, suggestions for books to read / coal hazards, and crop plants under threat
- 26 December 2017: 3 segments with guest Clay Doyle, VP for Transmission and Distribution, El Paso Electric, on what the grid is and energy trading, renewables and the start of AC power, and challenges for the grid
- 2 January 2018: I had laryngitis, so John Nelson introduced 4 segments from previous shows!
- 9 January 2018: How an engineer (John Nelson) got his career starts, the space race (Apollo 11, Sputnik, rockets), more about space (the Space Station, satellites, really biiiig rockets), and, for a real switch, supervolcanoes
- Have you thanked a bacterium today?
- Proxima Centauri b: not really habitable; how ’bout keeping Earth habitable?
- Carbon nanontubes: useful; don’t inhale!
- How far is it worth driving for cheaper gas? Some algebra
- Many more guests from near and, I hope, far (scientific colleagues calling in)
