iSpy Radio Show

Saturdays @ 11:00 AM: KYKN 1430 AM, Salem, Oregon


The iSpy Radio show is hosted by genial and informed Mark Anderson, who interviews different experts for an hour each Saturday in attempt to become better informed about science and politics-- and to bring his listeners along with him:

The following two interviews are with Dr. Bob Zybach, and were broadcast on February 11, 2012 and March 31, 2012. They cover a broad range of topics, including: scientific peer review, Klamath Dam removal, ESIPRI formation, forest restoration, Wallowa-Whitman National Forest road closures, hoot owls, tree mice, and the ESA.

Two interviews with Dr. Bob Zybach in early 2012

The following two interviews are available in two formats: as an MP3 recording, for listening to the actual interview (minus advertisers), and as a transcription in PDF format, for printing and/or reading the interview, or for sending on to others.

Interview # 1 (February 11, 2012): What – Exactly -- is “Peer Review?” [MP3_8.8_MB] [PDF_152_KB]

This interview was broadcast on February 11, 2012 as the second part of the one-hour “iSpy Radio Show” program on KYKN 1430 (AM) in Salem, Oregon. Mark Anderson, the show’s regular host, was interviewer in both segments. His first guest was US Congressman Tom McClintock, of California’s 4th District, who spoke passionately about the “science” behind Klamath River dam removal plans, and the environmental industry backing those plans. Mark’s second interviewee on the program was Dr. Zybach, and the topic was “peer review”; and particularly how it had become a popular, yet mysterious, process for validating the modular gaming “science” behind Global Warming, dam removals, salmon, hoot owls, and the Endangered Species Act.

Interview # 2 (March 31, 2012): Environmental Sciences, EPA Peer Review, and Pacific Northwest Forests [MP3_16_MB] [PDF_184_kb]

This interview was largely a continuation of the first interview, with greater depth given to the topics of peer review, and to the history and formation of ISIPRE (, the Environmental Sciences Independent Peer Review Institute of which "Dr. Bob" is a Board member. Other discussion topics included the Congressional testimony of Dr. Moghissi regarding peer review, scientific transparency, road closures on the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, and forest restoration -- as explained in a recent article on that topic by Zybach that appeared in the Oregon Fish & Wildlife Journal.
