Science Experiments on the Radio – Visit to the Dom & Jane Show on MIX 100.3

Got a call from the producers at MIX 100.3 in Denver for the Dom & Jane Show. These local radio celebrities are always up for something new… and it was my job this morning to come up with a few science experiments that would play well on the radio. What could be better than changing the sound of your voice with the heavy gas – sulfur hexafluoride? I was even able to sneak a balloon of SF6 gas to the traffic reporter. The report on southbound traffic on I-25 never sounded so weird. When we came back from break, it was time to play with some explosive hydrogen gas and a can of Pringles potato chips. In just a few seconds, the studio audience enjoyed a shower of chips. Dom calls it… getting your nerd on… but I like to think of it as another way to share our passion for making science fun.
