This Week in Science: The Kickass Science & Technology Tour

This Week in Science (TWIS) is a weekly web and radio show presenting a humorous, often opinionated, and irreverent look at the week in science and technology. Hosts Dr. Kiki Sanford, Justin Jackson, and Blair Bazdarich each bring their unique perspectives to discuss the latest in cutting-edge science news. In a very special engagement, the West coast TWIS team is making a special trip to New York City for STEM Fest!
