The KRAB Audio Archive
Science Forum, produced by Professor Jonathan Gallant
During the first fifteen years of KRAB, Jon Gallant, a Professor of Genetics and Biochemistry at the UW, as well as a KRAB founder, produced a number of programs about science that explored issues of ethics and philosophy confronted by scientists in academic and research environments. Some programs presented recent research discoveries and their implications for the future.
Science Forum seems to have been a regular program in 1973 and 1974, though missing KRAB program guides mean we have to rely on tape labels for program notes.
