Gail Dodge to Appear on Upcoming "With Good Reason" Public Radio Show

Gail Dodge, an Old Dominion University physics faculty member and a researcher at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Newport News, will be interviewed next week on "With Good Reason," the public radio program that spotlights research at Virginia's public universities.

Dodge will appear on the show entitled "Fugitive Red," which also features interviews about the history of the red dye called carmine, and an effort to trace the molecular "fingerprints" of rare paint pigments in historic works of art. The show airs at 7 a.m. on Sunday, July 19 on WHRV-FM 89.5, and on other public radio stations across the state and in more than 50 markets nationwide.

Broadcast times for the show are posted HERE.

Audio files of the full program and its companion news feature will be posted the week of the show to the "With Good Reason" Website.

A former chair of ODU's Department of Physics, Dodge is known not only for the experiments she conducts at the Jefferson Lab atom smashing accelerator, but also for the inspired teaching and outreach work she has done to makes physics an attractive major or career, especially for women and minorities.

She was one of 13 faculty members from around the state selected to receive a 2015 Outstanding Faculty Award from the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia. She is ODU's 28th winner of the award, which was inaugurated in 1986 and is co-sponsored by the Dominion Foundation.

Hosted by Sarah McConnell, "With Good Reason" is produced by the Charlottesville-based Virginia Foundation for the Humanities. The show was created more than 20 years ago to spotlight the groundbreaking research being done at Virginia's public universities.

Faculty members are encouraged to join the "With Good Reason" Facebook page, or subscribe to the Podcast.

"With Good Reason" has twice won the Gabriel Award for Best Documentary/Public Affairs Program. It also is the recipient of top honors from the Virginia Association of Broadcasters and won a second-place award in the Public Radio News Directors competition.
