Planetary Radio is world-renowned for its fascinating weekly interviews with innovators who are at the center of space exploration, such as trailblazing scientists, engineers, astronauts, writers and other advocates who provide a unique perspective on the study of our solar system and beyond.
But every now and then Planetary Radio, a key component of The Planetary Society -- the largest and most influential space interest organization on Earth – likes to venture away from the Society’s headquarters in Pasadena, CA to produce a Planetary Radio show live on the road in front of an audience.
Planetary Radio host Mat Kaplan and his boss, Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye, will welcome special guests Mike Rowe of "Dirty Jobs" and others! The show also features exciting news about the solar system from the Society's Planetary Evangelist, Emily Lakdawalla, and the always fun "What's Up" segment with astronomer Bruce Betts. The weekly space trivia contest also goes live with prizes provided by Celestron!
Be in the audience for this exciting interactive show with surprise guests, a planetary science update from Emily Lakdawalla, and your chance to win the Space Trivia Contest!
Says Mat: “People, especially kids, care about space exploration in a big way, and Planetary Radio wants to help bring this excitement to them live at the Expo.” A Planetary Society staff member for more than 12 years, Mat’s extensive background in journalism ranges from serving as a public radio reporter covering political conventions to movie reviewer for an international magazine.
