Well, I've got two shows under my belt now. Kind of cool that it's already airing in two of the biggest U.S. markets (DC & NYC), but that's more a function of where I'm working than people already syndicating.
I'm pretty proud of the first two shows... It's got the science lean that I want and probably still has that good NPR feel that I was groomed with. Not all the features are up, but here are the rundowns.
The possible discovery of the tomb of the last Incan Emperor in Ecuador
An aquaculture project at Sarasota's MOTE Labs that is bringing back Siberian Sturgeon and paying for it through the sale of its caviar.
Scientists at Princeton and other labs are working on developing a universal flu vaccine

A fun little puppet version of Mozart's Magic Flute that mixes marionettes, video, opera, and invention.
Antarctic Blue Whales are making a comeback after being hunted to almost 99% extinction in the 20th Century. We take a look at the genetic diversity within the remaining population of Earth's largest animal.
Also, the oldest fossilized skeletal remains ever found was located in Southern Austrailia. We talk with the paleobiologist who made the discovery.
And what is the correct dosage of medication to treat a child with ADHD... the latest study shows surprising results concerning focus and retention.
All that, and a story about sexually frustrated drunk fruit flies.
