Big Picture Science

Friday at 8pm on WMRA
  • Hosted by Molly Bentley & Seth Shostak

Big Picture Science takes on big questions by interviewing leading researchers and weaving together their stories of discovery in a clever and off-kilter narrative style. Science radio doesn’t have to be dull. The only dry thing about our program is the humor.

What came before the Big Bang? How does memory work? Will our descendants be human or machine? What's the origin of humor? We ponder these questions daily ... and expound on them weekly.

This one-hour radio magazine reveals science as an adventure.

But wait! There's more!

Are you a doubting Thomas? Good. Join us as we separate science from pseudoscience - and facts from the phony - in Skeptic Check, our monthly episode devoted to critical thinking. Whether it's astrology, Bigfoot, or the incessant onslaught of dubious medical claims, we tackle it all, wielding the skeptical tools of solid science.
