Ira Flatow is host of National Public Radio (NPR)’s “Talk of the Nation: Science Friday,” bringing radio and Internet listeners worldwide a lively, informative discussion on science, technology, health, space and the environment. Flatow is also founder and president of a nonprofit company dedicated to creating radio, TV and Internet projects that make science “user friendly.” Mixing his passion for science with a tendency toward being “a bit of a ham,” he describes his work as the challenge “to make science and technology a topic for discussion around the dinner table.”
