We’re Hosting Zoom Call-ins! Join A Live Recording Of Science Friday’s Radio Show

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Science Friday is often pre-recorded, so we’re not able to take your calls. We miss having your voices on our radio program—so we’re inviting you to join us live for select recordings for Science Friday on our Zoom Call-in shows!

We will livestream select recording sessions, which will be open to anyone who wants to listen in and get the chance to have their voice on the radio. Attendees will be able to hear the interview before it is broadcast, as well as chat with fellow listeners, ask questions to our host and guests, and could be selected to ask their question live—just like our call-in show! There’s no space limit to join, although we may only have time for a few listeners to ask their questions on-air.

See below for our scheduled recordings. If you can’t make it to this one, don’t worry—we will announce more recording sessions coming up. We hope to hear you soon!

Please note: All events will be recorded for use on Science Friday’s radio show. Any comments or voice recordings by attendees may be used as part of these pre-recorded segments.
