Program Directory

  • Science for the People

    We are a long-for­mat inter­view show that explores the con­nec­tions between sci­ence, pop­u­lar cul­ture, his­to­ry, and pub­lic pol­i­cy, to help lis­ten­ers under­stand the evi­dence and argu­ments behind what’s in the news and on the shelves. Every week, our hosts sit down with sci­ence researchers, writ­ers, authors, jour­nal­ists, and experts to dis­cuss sci­ence from the past, the sci­ence that affects our lives today, and how sci­ence might change our future.

  • Sea Change Radio

    Sea Change Media’s mis­sion is to make con­nec­tions that advance the shift toward social, envi­ron­men­tal, and eco­nom­ic sus­tain­abil­i­ty. Sea Change Media is a sole­ly-owned propi­etor­ship.

    Sea Change Radio, the pri­ma­ry project of Sea Change Media, is a week­ly show cov­er­ing the shifts to social, envi­ron­men­tal, and eco­nom­ic sustainability.

  • Some Assembly Required

    Host­ed by Jon Nel­son, since Jan­u­ary of 1999, Some Assem­bly Required fea­tures work by a vari­ety of artists and groups who work with bits and pieces of their media envi­ron­ments, giv­ing some­thing back to the cul­tur­al land­scape from which they so enthu­si­as­ti­cal­ly appropriate.

  • Spectrums

    music from across the spectrum

  • Sunlit Youth

    it’s like indie/​alternative rock with a hint of classics

  • Super Synth

    Start your Sat­ur­day nights off right with Super Synth! Every Sat­ur­day night, Super T and Arcade Kid will be play­ing you some syn­th­wave tunes that’ll rock your socks off, get you danc­ing or have you movin’ and groovin’ no mat­ter what you’re doing. You’re prob­a­bly ask­ing your­self, What is snyth­wave?”. Syn­th­wave is an elec­tron­ic genre that’s heav­i­ly inspired by 80s video games and film sound­tracks. Super T and Arcade Kid will also be play­ing var­i­ous sub­gen­res of syn­th­wave such as vapor­wave, chill­wave, retrowave, French pop, elec­tropop and much more! Oh, and just for fun, an occas­sion­al 80s tune will pop up every once in a while to keep in the spir­it of the decade.

    Syn­th­wave emerged in the late-2000s/ear­ly 2010s and can be heard in many retro themed movies, TV shows and video games such as Dri­ve”, Stranger Things”, Blade Run­ner 2049” and Far Cry 3: Blood Drag­on”. After lis­ten­ing to the show, you’ll become more famil­iar with artists such as Com Tru­ise, Pow­er Glove, Mitch Mur­der, Future­cop, Robert Park­er and many more. Sat­ur­day nights won’t be the same again after lis­ten­ing to Super Synth!

  • Swing Radio

    Big bands, blues, swing and jazz; music from yesteryear.
