Through the lens of science, hosts Kira Klingenberg & Keera Lindenberg (yes, really) explore surprisingly fascinating topics — like hive minds, sea monkeys, and lactose intolerance — in a way that everyone, despite their inherent level of nerdy-ness, can enjoy.
Isn’t it wonderful that we can own cellphones, use them to call our mothers and look up photos of dogs in hats and locate the Chipotle nearest to us, and we never even need to know how they work? (Spoiler alert: we’ll tell you how they work in this episode.)
Join K+K to explore:
Where the your voice goes when you speak into your cell phone
How sound waves become light waves just to become sound waves again
The language of satellites and cell phones
Why Drake is so sad
What the heck Trilateration is, and how you might use it if you were a wizard
This is where it all began! Listen to an insanely nervous Kira and Keera talk to Christine Alexander and the XRAY in the morning DJs about their educational non-profit, Science Project. They also talk about how to make learning Science fun, & why its so important to the well being of our community.
Then listen in to the Everything Is Interesting prototype quiz show, where they ask the DJs:
If radio waves are not sound waves, how do our voices get into the listeners’ ears?
How does coffee affect the brain? Why does caffeine keep you awake?
