Welcome to GirlTalk Radio! Listen now!
A new season begins!
Girls are talking. You should listen. GirlTalk Radio is a show connecting girls with amazing women in Pittsburgh and beyond in math and science. What does a CIA agent really do? A marine biologist? GirlTalk Radio girls get up close and personal with women in edgy science careers. The Girls, Math & Science Partnership has teamed up with The Saturday Light Brigade to offer girls the chance to interview emerging and established female mathematicians, scientists, and engineers. Girls will learn multimedia production, audio engineering and recording technology first hand as they record and edit their interviews at The Saturday Light Brigade’s $250,000 state-of-the-art digital studios. The finished GirlTalk Radio interviews will be aired to over 70,000 regional families and available on CD and iTunes.
GirlTalk Radio premiered June 21, 2007 at the Carnegie Science Center. You can listen to the interviews on this site, as well as learn more about the girls and the inspiring women they spoke with. The interviews also aired Saturday mornings through August, 2007 as part of The Saturday Light Brigade, an award-winning weekly public radio program heard regionally on WRCT 88.3 FM, WSAJ 91.1 FM, WIUP 90.1 FM and WLFP 1550 AM, simulcast at www.slbradio.org, and archived in the "community section" of the SLB site.
The History of GirlTalk Radio
In The News (coming soon!)The Girls, Math & Science Partnership's mission is to engage, educate, and embrace girls as architects of change.
