Podcast: Spotlight on Science: Scott Fisher

Spotlight on Science is a new series from the Emerald Podcast Network in which we bring in some of the members of the University of Oregon science community to explain what their research is in simple language we can all understand.

In this episode, Franklin Lewis speaks with Scott Fisher of the UO Astronomy Department, about his research at Pine Mountain Observatory near Bend, the upcoming solar eclipse this August and why it is important to fight science illiteracy.

Fisher has been Mr. Astronomy at the UO since 2012. He teaches classes, serves as outreach director for the Astronomy and Astrophysics department and is associate director of the Pine Mountain Observatory.

This episode was produced by Emerson Malone. Our theme song is “Zombie Disco” by Six Umbrellas.
