“SciTech in a Flash” Podcast Navigates the Mysteries of Science & Technology

SciTech Now is public media’s nexus of new ideas. The SciTech in a Flash podcast explores the latest breakthroughs in science and technology – in under 10 minutes. Hosted by Hari Sreenivasan, anchor of PBS NewsHour Weekend and a senior correspondent for the nightly program, SciTech in a Flash will navigate the mysteries of the scientific and technology worlds.

11 new episodes will be released weekly on the SciTech Now website, iTunes and Soundcloud.

In the first episode, dive into the world of creepy, crawly, cockroaches. The pesky cockroaches we sometimes find in kitchens, sewers and basements make up less than one percent of all cockroach species. Researchers estimate there are as many as 20,000 roach species on the planet and less than 5,000 have been cataloged. Our partners at Science Friday bring us inside a cockroach research lab, working to identify different species, at Rutgers University in New Jersey.
