Is altruism an aberration, or just an elaborate guise for sneaky self-interest? Do we really live in a selfish, dog-eat-dog world? Or has evolution carved out a hidden code that rewards genuine cooperation?</p><p>For more information, visit <a href="http://www.radiolab.org/">http://www.radiolab.org/</a>.</p> Sat, 07 Apr 2012 16:00:00 +0000 NHPR Staff 2681 at http://nhpr.org Episode 901: The Good Show Episode 805: Fate and Fortune http://nhpr.org/post/episode-805-fate-and-fortune <p>What decides the trajectory of our lives, our successes or failures, our steps and stumbles? Do we achieve what we achieve through force of will, or does fate have us by the throat? This hour, <em>Radiolab</em> explores the tug of war between will and fate from birth to death - from a kid reaching for a marshmallow to hints of dementia in the words of a 20-year-old.</p><p>For more information, visit <a href="http://www.radiolab.org/">http://www.radiolab.org/</a>.</p> Fri, 06 Apr 2012 16:00:00 +0000 NHPR Staff 2680 at http://nhpr.org Episode 805: Fate and Fortune Episode 804: Cities http://nhpr.org/post/episode-804-cities <p>Over 50% of the planet now lives in cities. This hour, <em>Radiolab</em> looks at what makes them tick. We talk to a couple physicists who think they can fit every city into a tidy mathematical formula, and we take to the streets to test their idea. We explore the water tunnels 700 feet below Manhattan and question whether cities are the source of, or the solution for, our growing global appetite.</p><p>For more information, visit <a href="http://www.radiolab.org/">http://www.radiolab.org/</a>.</p> Fri, 06 Apr 2012 15:59:00 +0000 NHPR Staff 2679 at http://nhpr.org Episode 804: Cities Episode 803: Falling http://nhpr.org/post/episode-803-falling <p>There are so many ways to fall - falling in love, falling asleep, even falling flat on your face.

Without language? This hour, <em>Radiolab</em> explores the words in our head and how they change the way we think. We talk to a woman who taught a 27-year-old man the first words of his life, and we ask a neurologist what happened when a stroke wiped out the language center of her brain.</p><p>Visit online: <a href="http://www.radiolab.org/">http://www.radiolab.org/</a></p> Fri, 30 Mar 2012 16:00:00 +0000 NHPR Staff 2544 at http://nhpr.org Radio Lab: Words
