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.

The latest episode of Conversations in Science on KLRNRadio has now aired. In this month’s episode, Jessie and I were joined by Dan Koboldt as we talked about the field of genetics and the genome project. I did have to rein in Jessie’s bizarre questions (something the two of us still laugh about), but I had no idea that the field had progressed to the point it had. It’s not often that I’m left speechless, but Dan succeeded. Take a listen as Dan explains what a geneticist really does and how our understanding of the human genome had led to amazing advancements in cancer research.

The latest episode of Conversations in Science has now aired on KLRNRadio. It was a requested topic and given the current escalation of the news about climate change and global warming, I can understand why. But is all this hoopla about global warming really fake science (alternative facts) or is it real and something we should be worried about? Simple answer: it’s all real, but the issues and solutions are far from simple.
