If you have never listened to a RADIOLAB podcast then now's your chance. These well produced shows by Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich from WNYC explore ideas and topics from a broad range of topics. According to WNYC, "Radiolab believes your ears are a portal to another world. Where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, and human experience. Big questions are investigated, tinkered with, and encouraged to grow. Bring your curiosity, and we'll feed it with possibility." These shows are AWESOME! Enjoy.
