NOVA, currently in its 46th season on PBS, is the most widely watched science program on U.S. television. As the series’ Science Editor for over two decades, Wayland resident Evan Hadingham is charged with ensuring the editorial accuracy of the series, evaluating ideas for new programs, and working on the storytelling of each episode.

In this talk, Evan will highlight what was special about a few of NOVA’s most notable past shows and will offer a taste of some exciting future programs. He’ll discuss the challenges of communicating science to the public in a fast-changing media landscape, and touch on the personal journey that led him to his job at NOVA.

He has editorial responsibility for developing ideas and overseeing the science content of all NOVA’s documentaries and special series.
