This grant provides ongoing support for the production and distribution of Science Friday, a weekly public radio show hosted by Ira Flatow that reaches over two million listeners each week. Science Friday engages the public through participatory dialogue and conversation, a live call-in show, and Q&As that give listeners a direct line of communication to scientists, mathematicians, engineers, technologists, inventors, science journalists and policymakers. Grant funds will allow Science Friday to continue producing SciArts (a weekly segment seeking to bridge the gap between science and the arts), hold a monthly book club, stream 50 podcast episodes per year, and hold five to ten events per year.
