Last weekend, Nerve + Wire and I participated in a radio make-a-thon where all participants were encouraged to make audio (or video) pieces in 24 hours. We came up with a series, entitled The Bottom of the Hour, meant to be a bunch of 1-2 minute radio pieces that fill in the hole at, you guessed it, the bottom of the newshour.
One of our signature pieces is helmed by a small, green amphibian.
His name is Science Frog. (And he’s voiced by Ari Daniel.)
In this premiere episode, Science Frog teaches a fact that 20% of Americans are still not quite familiar with.
