Focus, or Focus 580, was WILL Radio's flagship talk program from 1981 until 2014. David Inge was the host from 1981 until his retirement in 2012. Always engaging, the program acted as a resource for citizens to directly question politicians and candidates as well as keep up on the arts, science, health, and even the latest from well-known novelists.
The Focus archive below offers thousands of great interviews and serves as a time capsule and a great resource for researchers and those just curious about how influential people spoke of important topics as they were happening.
Is the universe infinite or just really big? In her new book How the Universe Got its Spots, cosmologist Janna Levin synthesizes areas of science from geometry to string theory to explain how the patterns left in the universe by the Big Bang may one day be used by scientists to reveal the exact size and shape of the universe. She joins us today on Focus to discuss her book and her day-to-day life as a physicist exploring this area of her field.
