In ANNOYING: The Science of What Bugs Us. NPR science correspondent Joe Palca and Flora Lichtman, multimedia editor for NPR's Science Friday, go on a scientific quest through psychology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and other disciplines to uncover the truth about being annoyed. Tuesday they join Doug to discuss what it is that makes the perfect recipe for being annoyed.

In 2001, he became host and executive producer of KUER's RadioWest, a one hour conversation/call-in show on KUER 90.1 in Salt Lake City. He has gained a reputation for his thoughtful style. He has interviewed everyone from Isabel Allende to the Dalai Lama, and from Madeleine Albright to Desmond Tutu.
