My good friends at They Blinded Me With Science have an exciting program tonight! They’ll be interviewing University of Texas at Austin graduate student Ammon Thompson about a new art-science collaboration called The Art of Evolution, in which you can explore incredibly creative visualizations of simulations about common topics in evolutionary biology. Currently, the website features interactive simulations on Mating, Genetic Drift and Coalescence.

Tune in tonight, on the radio (KVRX student radio 91.7FM, Austin, TX), or online ( from 8:30-9:00pm to learn more about this exciting project!

Just a little heads-up that I’ll be chatting about the biocreativity blog on one of my favorite radio shows They Blinded me with Science tomorrow, Monday, October 3rd from 8:30-9:00pm on 91.7FM KVRX in Austin, Texas.

They Blinded Me With Science is a killer student radio show at the University of Texas that features all kinds of cool science. If you’ve never tuned in, why not start now? It’s on every Monday from 8:30-9:00pm and you can listen even if you don’t live in Austin by visiting!
