Radiolab http://nhpr.org en Colors http://nhpr.org/post/colors <p>Our world is saturated in color, from the softest hues to the most lurid, violent stains. But it&#39;s hard to put your finger on how something so intangible can have such a visceral punch. This hour, we ask how the pigments around us color our thoughts, and wonder how much of what we see is on the outside... and how much is created in our heads. From Sir Isaac Newton sticking a needle in his eye, to a sea creature that sees a rainbow far beyond what humans can experience.</p> Thu, 12 Jul 2012 18:25:06 +0000 NHPR Staff 8654 at http://nhpr.org Colors After Life http://nhpr.org/post/after-life <p>What happens at the moment when we slip from life...to the other side? Is it a moment? If it is, when exactly does it happen? And what happens afterward? It&#39;s an episode full of questions that don&#39;t have easy answers. <em>Radiolab</em> stares down the very moment of passing, and speculates about what may lay beyond.</p> Thu, 12 Jul 2012 18:24:01 +0000 NHPR Staff 8653 at http://nhpr.org After Life Stochasticity http://nhpr.org/post/stochasticity <p>Stochasticity (a wonderfully slippery and smarty-pants word for &quot;randomness&quot;), may be at the very foundation of our lives. To understand just how big a role it plays, we look at chance and patterns in sports, lottery tickets, and even the cells in our own body. And we meet two girls named Laura, whose unlikely meeting seems to defy pure chance.</p> Thu, 12 Jul 2012 18:22:49 +0000 NHPR Staff 8652 at http://nhpr.org Stochasticity Lucy http://nhpr.org/post/lucy <p>Chimps. Bonobos. Humans. We&#39;re all great apes, but that doesn&rsquo;t mean we&#39;re one happy family. This hour of <em>Radiolab</em>: stories of trying to live together. A chimp named Lucy teaches us the ups and downs of growing up human, and a visit to The Great Ape Trust in Des Moines, Iowa highlights some of the basics of bonobo culture (be careful, they bite).</p> Thu, 12 Jul 2012 18:20:45 +0000 NHPR Staff 8651 at http://nhpr.org Lucy When Brains Attack! http://nhpr.org/post/when-brains-attack <p>Radiolab for June, 29.</p> Tue, 24 Apr 2012 15:26:17 +0000 NHPR Staff 3484 at http://nhpr.org When Brains Attack!
