About Us

Community Science is a new local radio show in Seattle, WA. The FCC recently released a blanket of LPFM licenses which started broadcasting this year. Our show is based in Capitol Hill on KXSU at Seattle University and broadcasts the first Friday of every month at 9am at 102.1.

Our show is hosted by Chad Goodwin and Eli Christopher Voigt. While Chad is a Research Scientist at a local energy start-up, Eli is not a scientist – but brings a unique and inquisitive spirit to the “every (wo)man’s” outlook. Moreover, both Chad and Eli are parents and active members of the community, excited to bring a fresh, fun and new way of looking at the ways that science is a part of our everyday lives. And most importantly, Chad & Eli bring a combined 21 years’ experience in radio and 12 on-air. They have worked at college radio, for corporate radio at CBS, Clear Channel and more, as well as producing, imaging and engineering. Their radio expertise, commitment and passion for this project makes it just plain fun to be a part of.

Over the last several months, Chad & Eli have been working out the formatting and programming for the show as it evolves each episode. We are looking to form partnerships with local organizations which can help tell some of the exciting science-related stories we have in our community. In addition to each show’s primary topic/interview, we are also working on a Little Labmates segment of the show (approx. 5 mins), in which a kid will be able to pose a question they are curious about and Eli & Chad will go off and research the answer to the question or preform an experiment.

We truly hope you are excited about this show and look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions, or ideas.
