The Science Inside is produced by The Wits Radio Academy with funding from The Department of Science & Technology. Each week the show goes inside the science of a major news item, natural disaster or cultural event, such as the salvage of the Costa Concordia, fracking, a train crash or the shortage of ARVs. In addition to expert interviews, each show features listeners’ questions, answered by a university student in the appropriate field. A regular feature, “The Science OUTside”, also takes the show on a trip out of the studio. A second regular segment is “2 Minute Science”, which looks at future developments and how science can change the world. Tune in to Vow FM every Monday at 6pm.
