What is the LDOS “Hive”?
While some radio shows have writer/editor “staffs,” we consider the Loh Down on Science to be run by a “Hive.” The term was coined to invoke a community mentality where the ideas of the writers and editors are copacetic with that of Sandra Tsing Loh, our Queen Bee and program host. (Sandra’s note, delivered in eerie third person: “From LDOS’ first day with the fine grad students at UC Irvine (Zot Zot!), it was clear that Sandra was in exceptional company. The LDOS Fellows’ mastery of everything ranging from the subtle differences of “absorption” versus “adsorption” to the intricacies of Google drives made them hyper-capable of organizing themselves. Sandra typically just brings doughnuts.”) This form of “Hive” mind management enables the Loh Down on Science to continually produce radio-ready scripts that are both scientifically accurate and a loads of fun to hear.
