Probably Novel is a student-run radio show and podcast hosted by the Department of Applied Mathematics (APPM) at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder).

The show - which is now on its third season - showcases science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) related research done by students, undergraduates and graduates alike. Occasionally, it also interviews alumni, faculty, and researchers associated with the University.

Podcasts air live at Radio 1190 on Mondays from 7-8 PM MTN, and you can find older podcasts below or in our archive - see links on the right!
