Science Moab is a weekly half-hour program exploring current research going on within the Colorado Plateau and beyond. The show includes interviews with scientists about the fascinating research they are conducting in our area. Host and producer Kristina Young explores basic ideas behind various scientific topics, the kinds of research that scientists do to answer their questions, and how current research can help us understand our changing world. Science topics span ecology, geology, chemistry, archaeology, hydrology, and any other -ology that might come our way. Kristina also explores the human side of science by asking researchers why they chose to pursue science careers and what they most enjoy about the work they do.

Join us every Friday at 11:30 am for Science Moab or listen later on SoundCloud, iTunes, & Stitcher
