Available from PRX, NPR, and direct download from here, Ninety Second Science brings you interstitials from The ep5 Educational Broadcasting Foundation, where our goal is to offer science and technology seen from a novel perspective.

Capitalize on the growing public interest in science and technology with this provocative series

Ninety Second Science presents the sizzle that sells the science steak. For each episode, we select an unusual and intriguing topic from one of the many branches of science, capture the heart of the story, and tell it quickly, concisely, and in a way that the listener will understand.

Over a span of more than two millennia, science has pushed back the darkness. From Archimedes’ long-lost invention of calculus to discoveries in the atmospheres of distant exoplanets . . . we distill it down to a captivating minute and a half science-byte, all without infantilizing the listener with clownish behavior.

Ninety Second Science is produced monthly, one episode per weekday.

The ep5 Educational Broadcasting Foundation is a charitable not-for-profit institution established to create informative content for public broadcasting and make it available at no cost to radio and television stations nationwide.
