Yesterday, Bill Greenwood and I got a backstage tour of the studios where WNET’s SciTechNow is created – both the Lincoln Center stage setting where Hari Sreenivasan does most of his interviews and the Hell’s Kitchen “control center,” where all the nuts and bolts of making a TV program goes down. It’s been exciting to see this program take shape, from my first meeting with producer Saskia Chanoine at a Tufts alumnae event where she told me about the new program, to shooting at NY Tech Meetup (NYTM) last summer and the release of the first episode (featuring NYTM’s Jessica Lawrence) – and now it’s coming back for a second season!
