NPR science correspondent David Kestenbaum comes to radio through the traditional route of a PhD in particle physics. He believes that radio is way better than print, that anybody can be made to say something interesting if you poke them enough times, and that when there is no scene in a story you should make one. He also believes that radio should make you cry and think and be narrative where possible but the best way to heroically save a boring story is to really come up with a better idea. Kestenbaum has been at NPR since 1999.
