The University of Montana will launch a four-minute radio program called “Cores of Discovery” to air on Montana Public Radio beginning Friday, Nov. 23. “Cores of Discovery” aims to educate the general public about ongoing scientific research being conducted at the University and how this research can benefit lives.

Producer Katie George said the program is a novel and innovative approach to engage the public with UM’s research endeavors. George conducts the interviews in a format that is easy to understand.

The following “Cores of Discovery” podcasts will air at 2:06 p.m. on Fridays on MTPR:

  • Nov. 23: Tony Ward, asbestos exposure in Libby
  • Nov. 30: Diana Six, effect of mountain pine beetle on Whitebark Pine forest.
  • Dec. 7: Rick Hauer, director of the Institute on ecosystems UM.
  • Dec. 14: Solomon Dobrowski, ponderosa pine seedling survival in the Bitterroot and Missoula valleys.
  • Dec. 21: Maury Valett, water quality in the Flathead River.
