The Hot Hot Show
The main bar story is about heat islands in cities – and fixes for that, including planting trees. The lineup already includes: the anatomy of a hot flash, thermophilic bacteria, a weather vs. climate explainer, how forest fires can influence weather, and the Chinese healing concept of internal heat.
Got anything ‘temperature’ related that will surprise our audience — on topic — but unexpected? For this one, I'm looking for ONE more 3-5 minute piece (maybe already produced) because the deadline is coming soon, mid-July.
The Gender Show in Mid August
Seeking health + science pitches: Anything from … “Girling up,” the science of being female … to the health advantages men enjoy within the American health system.
The Language Show in Early September
Seeking health + science pitches: Looking for ideas from Deaf culture, bilingual families, even tech.
Sending pitches to both addresses can help cut through the clutter:
ALSO THIS SPECIAL EPISODE …
WORKING TITLE: Travels on the Big Muddy in Early September
The mighty Mississippi River is the final destination for a vast network of streams that stretch across nearly half of the U.S. The river’s pull has created great cities, thriving industries, and vibrant culture along her banks. But we haven’t always treated the river well. We wash our waste into the waters, restrict natural movement, and engineer the stream to our needs. What’s been the toll on human health and the environment? On this episode, The Pulse travels the Mississippi from the headwaters in Minnesota to the mouth in the Gulf of Mexico.
Got an idea? We’re looking for stories about the ways people use and abuse the Mississippi. Pitch us stories about river conservation efforts, nearby agriculture as well as urban stories about runoff and water quality. Profile someone using science to protect the Mississippi, or a worker who makes his living along the river.
First edit around August 7
The BIG MUDDY call for pitches closes June 28, please send us your idea before then.
