The Chamanas live in the studio! Willie Grayeyes is back on the ballot. Love for Marley and preventing child sex abuse. Inventors behind the Tammock -- part tent, part hammock, no trees required -- and the Hero Glove. Science of Invention Festival.

Tonight’s lineup:

  • Live music from The Chamanas, a “fronterizo indie-pop fusion band” from El Paso, Texas/Juarez, Mexico. As part of the band’s Super Good Tour, The Chamanas plays SLC’s Urban Lounge tomorrow night.
  • Braidan Weeks of Living the Circle of Life with an update on Willie Grayeyes and a federal judge's decision to reinstate his name on the General Election ballot in San Juan County this fall.
  • Some of Utah’s most innovative scientists and inventors will gather on August 11, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Natural History Museum of Utah, to showcase their cutting-edge work at the museum's Science of Invention Festival. RadioActive spoke with:
    • NHMU’s Wes Porter
    • Allie Robins, the 11-year-old inventor of the Hero Glove. It is a glove that is cut resistant so kids can help safely prepare food with their parents.
    • Nick Bierwolf, co-creator of The Tammock, the world’s lightest and most portable tent hammock. It can be set up anywhere and requires no trees.
