Radio Lab: Radio at its Best

Radio Lab

Here at Popular Kinetics, radio is our constant studio companion. One of our favorite shows is Radio Lab, produced by New York Public Radio station WNYC. With themes such as Sleep, Morality, and Time, each hour-long segment approaches its subject from a scientific, artistic, and philosophical viewpoint. The station only produces about five shows a year because they are so research- and labor-intensive. Each program is funny, insightful, and full of great storytelling.

Here’s a sample podcast. Sleep  Every creature does it – from giant hump back whales all the way down to fruit flies – and yet science still can’t answer the basic questions: Why do we sleep? What is it for? We’ll eavesdrop on the uneasy dreams of rats in search of answers. http://www.wnyc.org/shows/radiolab/episodes/2007/05/25
