Hosts Lynn Ware Peek and John Wells speak with  Guru Madhaven, author of Applied Minds: How Engineers ThinkApplied Minds explores the unique visions and mental tools of engineers to reveal the enormous ? and often understated ? influence they wield in transforming problems into opportunities.       

Then, Erin Brown and Jessica Reade Gleim, from the board of The Drug Policy Project of Utah come in to talk about promoting sensible changes to the law that facilitate legal access to medical cannabis products. Senate Bill 259 will be taken before the Utah Congress this upcoming session with the bill sponsor, Sen. Mark Madsen (R).

Finally, Sue Armstrong joins Cool Science Radio to speak about a gene that all of us have lurking in our DNA -  a most remarkable gene called P53. Its job is to protect us from cancer.

Lynn Ware Peek is a long-time contributor to KPCW. She joined the station in 2008 with Tales from the Wasatch Back, was a reporter from 2012 to 2016, and co-hosts and produces two of KPCW’s Public Affairs Hour shows, The Mountain Life, on health and lifestyle, on Wednesdays and Cool Science Radio, tackling science and technology every Thursday.
John's curiosity with science and technology began at the age of 7 with the country's space program. With a subscription his parents gave him to Popular Science and Popular Mechanics along with other periodicals and Walter Cronkite's evening broadcast he studied everything space. He followed the lives of America's test pilots and astronauts who piloted Mercury, Gemini and Apollo spacecraft. His curiosity in how things were built led him to dismantling the family's window fan, toaster and lawnmower. Taking apart things was easy. Putting them back together, well, not so much. John grew up in New York state and Massachusetts with 2 brothers and 2 sisters. He received a BA in Economics and Sociology from the University of Maryland.
