From our Listeners


If you don’t listen to @iraflatow @scifri every week, you’re missing out. I just learned a ton about cephalopods and will be going to work next week to weird everyone out with my geekiness. #randomknowledge


Amazing moment of parenting success: I start to turn the car radio to music and my 14 year old daughter says, “mom, it’s science Friday.” Thank you @scifri for the many great shows, including today’s report on the gender of animals in research!



We produce more than just Science Friday. Check out our podcasts, including Universe of Art and Science Diction.
