Jad talks to musicians Michael Lowenstern and Zoe Keating about their remixes of Terry Riley's In C.
Love 'em or hate 'em, you rely on numbers every day. We ask how they confuse us, connect us, & even reveal secrets about us.
Robert ambushes Jad with a question we've all been dying to ask him since he became a father. And we revisit some other ideas from our Morality show to think about a few really big modern-day problems (think global warming and nuclear war).
A story about a boy, a mom, and a homemade helicopter--and how radio can move you to feel a little bit different about the world.
Peacenik baboons, a man in a dress, and cuddly tame foxes. Stories of adaptation, and reframing ideas about normalcy.
We tackle a question we thought was a no-brainer: why do we blink?
They Might Be Giants celebrate at our season launch party with a live concert, and a conversation about the tricky business of combining science and entertainment.
Tales of lethargic farmers, zombie cockroaches, and even mind-controlled humans (kinda, maybe).
Jad--a brand new father--wonders what's going on inside the head of his baby Amil. Is it just chaos? Or is there something more, some understanding from the very beginning?
After hearing our show about moments of death, filmmaker Will Hoffman went out in search of moments of life. What follows is what he found.
For meditation number fifteen we have a reading from David Eagleman's book Sum. It's a vision of the after life that's both playful and... horrifying. Sum is read by actor Jeffrey Tambor.
Another meditation on what happens after the moment of death, this time as Shakespeare envisions it.
We continue our meditations on death with a reading from poet and writer, Mark Doty. This is an excerpt from Doty's 1996 memoir Heaven's Coast.
This week on the podcast, we continue our meditations on death (our After Life episode had eleven). We'll throw a new one at you each day, all week long, culminating in a very special treat at the end of the week.
Eleven meditations on how, when, and even if we die.
Robert challenges Richard Dawkins on a number of sticky spots on the subject of biological evolution.
We follow up on our Stochasticity show with an exploration pf whether the little choices we make every day are predictable or not.
We have a special bonus this week to accompany our Stochasticity episode. We asked our friends, [Higher Mammals](http://highermammals.com/) to produce a song and video for our Stochasticity show. We hope you find it completely Random! !(http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/radiolab/~4/bkxbGxniGcE)
