Flatows interest in things scientific began in boyhood when he almost burned down his mothers bathroom trying to recreate a biology class experiment.
I was the proverbial kid who spent hours in the basement experimenting with electronic gizmos, and then entering them in high school science fairs, Flatow said. Mixing his passion for science with a tendency toward being a bit of a ham, Flatow describes his work as the challenge to make science and technology a topic for discussion around the dinner table.
Boise State Public Radio reaches a weekly audience of more than 100,000 listeners in southwest Idaho, eastern Oregon and northern Nevada.
