Introduction

This Week in Science (TWIS) is a weekly, hour-long web and radio show presenting an humorous, often opinionated, and irreverent look at the week in science and technology. In each episode, TWIS hosts, Dr. Kiki Sanford and Justin Jackson, discuss the latest in cutting-edge science news on topics such as genetic engineering, stem cells, cybernetics, epigenetics, space exploration, neuroscience, microbiology, the end of the world, and a show favorite – Countdown to World Robot Domination.

TWIS broadcasts weekly at 7:30pm Pacific Time on Thursdays in live streaming video through Google+ Hangouts On-Air and YouTube Live. TWIS audio is rebroadcast from KDVS, 90.3 FM in Davis, CA on Tuesdays at 8:30am PT.
