Science Friday

Friday at 1:00 PM
  • Hosted by Ira Flatow

Science Friday is a weekly talk show that has become a trusted source for news and entertaining stories about science. Each week, the show focuses on science topics that are in the news and tries to bring an educated, balanced discussion to bear on the scientific issues at hand. Panels of expert guests join host Ira Flatow to discuss science - and to take questions from listeners during the call-in portion of the program. "SciFri" is brain fun, for curious people.

IRA FLATOW, HOST:

The synth stylings of Kraftwerk. When that song "Autobahn" came out 1974, and, yes, I was around to remember when it came out then, synthesizers were the cutting edge in music technology. It really were a rarity, but not so today. Synthesizers are everywhere. In pop music, from the top 40s, to indie synth pop, you definitely heard synthesizers, maybe you've even seen them in action. But do you know how they work? Yeah.
