SciEye has previously visited the Science Friday NPR radio show.  The other great science radio show in the SciLands is the UK’s The Naked Scientists.  Every Sunday at 10 AM SLTime, the show takes questions from its real-life audience and its Second Life audience during one segment.  My personal favorite is their Kitchen Science feature; this last Sunday, they implosively crushed a soda can by heating water in it to boiling, then immersing it in water.  *>!CRUSH!<*
