Dr. Moira Gunn is Host of Tech Nation and BioTech Nation, which air in such venues as National Public Radio’s Satellite Radio channels NPR Now and NPR Talk, and internationally to 133 countries via Armed Forces Radio International. Produced at the studios of KQED in San Francisco, the programming can also be heard on over 200 domestic public stations and through podcasts via iTunes and other Internet distribution venues. Tech Nation is the sole national weekly radio program on the impact of technology, and its weekly BioTech Nation segment enjoys the same status in the area of biotech issues. Dr. Gunn’s weekly commentaries touch all aspects of our lives in these unpredictable times. Dr. Gunn is not so much interested in the opinions of the day – she is more interested in how people come to form these opinions, especially when a comprehension of the underlying technology and science is essential.
Dr. Gunn is Program Director of Information Systems at the College of Professional Studies, University of San Francisco and an advisor to both Purdue and Stanford Universities. Her past career is punctuated with science, technology and robotics.
