Meet Phil, host of STEAM Lab. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. Phil and his co host, Dr. Kyle, discuss anything and everything science related.
Q: What is special about WBTV-LP?
A: The amazing thing about WBTV-LP is that along with being an entertaining radio station where you can catch all sorts of shows, it is also a learning radio station. If you wanted to do this and get involved with this form of media you can come in and take classes. I taught one recently, it was a listening lab and I met with a group of folks that really wanted to get into radio. It doesn’t cost you a thing, this is a community radio station, it is an opportunity to not just listen but also engage directly and get involved to create your own material.
Q: Why choose WBTV-LP?
A: We’ve made our home at WBTV-LP because we want to engage, educate, and entertain the local community and, hopefully, the world. We are looking for folks to get interested in science, technology, and engineering topics, even some art and mathematics (hence the acronym). We want to get folks thinking about this stuff, it’s educational, but we are having a good time and some fun.
Q: What does your show consist of?
A: We have good guests that come in to talk about things from jazz to photography to architecture. My co-host, his name is Dr. Kyle, he is a medical student at the University of Vermont.
Q: What sets your show apart from others?
A: What sets our show apart from other shows is that we have time. We have time to get into topics that other radio shows do not have the opportunity to. We have two hours, we can do whatever we like with those. This isn’t commercial radio, we still have time to get in depth. Most of the time with talk radio it’s a mile wide and an inch deep, with STEAM Lab we get to go as deep as we want to (depending on what the audience wants to hear).
