Plateau on the Radio: Episode 17 Science Communication on the Radio with Melissa Sevigny

Listen to Episode 17 HERE...

This week on part 3 of our 5 part Science Communication series we focus in on the airwaves and look into science communication over the radio.

My wonderful guest Melissa Sevigny (Science and Technology Reporter at KNAU Public Radio Station in Flagstaff, AZ) talks about creating a story, about the joys of science reporting and about many of her wonderful segments that you can hear anytime in the KNAU archives. Also we talked about her two books, Mythical River and Under Desert Skies. Many thanks to Melissa for her perspective on science communication and for all her amazing work she does in reporting news and research for the southern Plateau region.

Also we take a trip through science shows in radio history, including the very first science show called Radio Talks that aired in the 1920's as well as the first dramatized science show called Adventures in Research that aired in the 30's. And if you would like to check out some of the modern shows I mentioned in the program, here are some links...
