Science on the Radio

Welcome to Science on the Radio

If you think science is too difficult to understand – think again! From climate change, to air quality, mobile phones, radio, television and the internet, science is all around us. Listen in to Science on the Radio to hear about the science and technology that affects our daily lives – and to find out about the many scientists and science and technology companies operating throughout Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds.

The show features local people involved in science and locally-based science and technology companies talking about what they do.

We’ll also be highlighting local science events, telling you how you can get involved in science activities and find science-based job opportunities. Upcoming shows highlight topics such as climate change, soils, air quality, food security, engineering, water pollution, fossils, ancient animals – and more. We’ll also alert you to local science lectures, festivals and activities you can attend.

Our message: you don’t have to be a ‘scientist’ to enjoy learning about science!

Science on the Radio is a weekly show presented by Nina Morgan and produced by Grant Grindley.

If there’s a topic you’d like us to cover, are involved in science yourself, or work in a local science and technology company, we’d love to share your science stories with our local community. Contact us by email at:
