The world around us is an amazing place, filled with beauty… And with science. But let’s face it, sometimes the science can be so confusing that it takes a PhD to understand it. Well, you’re in luck. I just happen to have a PhD. Come and take a seat. Perhaps I can explain the world around us in a way we all can understand.
Welcome to Conversations in Science. I’m Dr Judy L Mohr.
Call me Doc.
Conversations in Science airs on KLRNRadio on the first Monday of every month at 7pm EST (currently equates to the first Tuesday of every month at 1pm for those in New Zealand). If you miss it, that's okay. It's downloadable. Links to the episodes are found below.

It’s ironic considering the topic for this month’s show.
Jessie and I discussed what EMP devices really are and the impact they can have on technology. (Jessie, did you set off the EMP device in your driveway?)
