Brains On! is a podcast featuring science and kids produced by MPR News and Southern California Public Radio. We ask questions and go wherever the answers take us. Sometimes that means talking to a food scientist or a snake handler, other times that means putting on a play about sound waves or writing songs about sleep. A different kid co-hosts each episode. We talk to them about the interesting stuff they’re doing and the things they think about. It’s a science lesson for your ears – so join us and turn your brains on!
WHO WE ARE
Molly Bloom is a digital producer for MPR News. She most enjoys working on stories about the way things work, especially when that means she gets to visit factories or delve into legislation. She likes playing piano, sings in a choir and wishes that people would break into song and dance like they do in the musicals that she loves. She was always the shortest one in her class and has worn glasses since the third grade.
