A New Episode From Asheville! Meet Our Guests


What’s the difference between plunge and plummet? That answer and more on this week’s edition of Says You! with guest host Dave Zobel

We’re joined by local-punsters Helen Chickering and John Boyle

 Helen Chickering brings her own brand of science and the right chemistry to Says You! Helen is a reporter and the afternoon host at Blue Ridge Public Radio. She has a passion for science communication and loves covering the beat in Western North Carolina. Helen is an active member of the Asheville Science Tavern and a guest lecturer and an advisory board member at the University of North Carolina’s Medical and Science Journalism Program.

 John Boyle, known to the locals in Asheville, North Carolina, as the Answer Man, brings a sweet brand of swagger to the show. For the last twenty-two years, John hasn’t been able to remove the ink stains from his fingers – covering everything from development news to rabid beaver attacks of paddle boarders. He’s a seasoned journo and columnist of the Asheville Citizen-Times. John left an indelible mark on Says You!

      Thanks for the inquiry, Penny. Arnie and Paula will be joining us this August for a special show on Martha’s Vineyard! Keep an eye out for tickets this weekend. No one ever quite leaves the group as we are an extended family of sorts!
