KPCC presents Science Friday LIVE: Science of the Silver Screen
Join host Science Friday host Ira Flatow and KPCC FM's own Sanden Totten as Science Friday comes to Caltech's Beckman Auditorium this summer for a thought-provoking evening of science news and entertainment in front of a live audience.
A veteran NPR science correspondent and award-winning journalist, Flatow will discuss current science topics with local experts and welcome audience questions. The entire show will be taped for a subsequent national broadcast.
Science Friday is a trusted source for science news with an entertaining flair. Started as a radio show by host and executive producer Ira Flatow, Science Friday now also produces award-winning digital videos and original Web content covering everything from octopus camouflage to cooking on Mars. He (and Flora Lichtman) call it “brain fun” for curious people.
