Friday 10am to 12pm
- Hosted by Ira Flatow
NPR science correspondent and award-winning TV journalist Ira Flatow is the host of Science Friday®. He anchors the show each Friday, bringing listeners a lively, informative discussion on science, technology, health, space and the environment.
Flatow is also founder and president of the Science Friday Initiative, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit company dedicated to creating radio, TV and Internet projects that make science user friendly. Flatow's interest in things scientific began in boyhood — he almost burned down his mother's bathroom trying to recreate a biology class experiment. "I was the proverbial kid who spent hours in the basement experimenting with electronic gizmos, and then entering them in high school science fairs," Flatow says.
