We’re very excited that our guest this afternoon will be Forrest M. Mims III, the amateur scientist and electronics guru, who wrote the iconic Getting Started in Electronics and the Engineer’s Mini-Notebook series for Radio Shack. Forrest also has a new column in MAKE, The Country Scientist, which premiered in Volume 17. Also, we’ll be sharing our favorite tricks, tips, and tools for the week, and giving away prizes!

And don’t forget, this is live, call-in radio. The show runs for 45 minutes. Call in during showtime (12-12:45pm PT) and ask questions. The number is: (646) 915-8698. We hope you’ll join us!
