Scientific Fridays 91.7

A new find has found its way into my car. I stumbled across it about 2 months ago. Nothing you buy or can go see but something to listen to.

Flipping though radio stations about 2 months ago, I stumbled on Scientific Fridays. I was hooked. It is by far my favorite radio day. If I'm lucky enough to be driving around on Friday's it is not a chore but secret hooky time.

The best part is, no one even knows how much fun I'm having... well I guess you do now... but before I came clean, it was just my little secret Friday bonus.

Yesterday, the topics were;
Scientists chase tornadoes to solve mysteries
TV Weathercasters skeptical of climate science
Pulling power from the plains

I caught part of "Pulling power from the plains". It was mainly about capturing wind power, with a panel of experts from multiple fields- very interesting.

I know not everyone loves science, but science is more than just laboratories and people in white coats. Science is everywhere and includes everything. With that base you can imagine the wide variety of topics and guests.

Next Friday it you are lucky enough to find yourself out tooling around tune into 91.7 and see for yourself. I like the station most days, but Fridays are by far my favorite... You can also check out the program line up at

Happy learning,
