Best Of Access Utah On Science With Matthew LaPlante

mlp.jpg

The focus of this best of Access Utah is science.  Tom William's guest for the day is Matthew LaPlante, associate professor of journalism at USU and host of Undisciplined, which airs Friday's at 2pm on UPR.  We hear excerpts from Access Utah interviews with Timothy Winegard, author of "The Mosquito," and Wayne Wurtsbaugh, Professor emeritus of watershed science, where we discuss the Great Salt Lake.

Tom Williams worked as a part-time UPR announcer for a few years and joined Utah Public Radio full-time in 1996. He is a proud graduate of Uintah High School in Vernal and Utah State University (B. A. in Liberal Arts and Master of Business Administration.) He grew up in a family that regularly discussed everything from opera to religion to politics. He is interested in just about everything and loves to engage people in conversation, so you could say he has found the perfect job as host “Access Utah.” He and his wife Becky, live in Logan.
