Radiolab on WUOT-2

Saturdays from 2-3 p.m.

Radiolab is an experiential investigation that explores themes and ideas through a patchwork of people, sounds, and stories. In each episode, Radiolab experiments with sound and style allowing science to fuse with culture, and information to sound like music.

Hosted by Jad Abumrad with co-host Robert Krulwich, Radiolab is designed for listeners who demand skepticism but appreciate wonder; who are curious about the world, but also want to be moved and surprised. Radiolab won a Peabody Award in 2011.

March 2015 programs:

3/7/2015  Famous Tumors
On the next Radiolab: famous tumors. Say hello to the growth that killed Ulysses S. Grant, and get to know the woman whose cancer cells changed modern medicine. The good, bad… and ugly side of anatomical aberrations.

3/14/2015  Diagnosis
What's in a name? Radiolab examines diagnosis—our attempt to find out what's wrong, and give it a label. From the distant past through today, Radiolab learns how people get to the root of a problem, and how they react when they get there.

3/21/2015  Power of Music
On the next Radiolab: the physical and psychological power of music... from a disco hit that takes CPR classes by storm, to a string quartet pushed to the brink by Beethoven’s need for speed.

3/28/2015  3 Questions
This hour of Radiolab, three questions lead us down three very different roads.  Starting at a New York City waste water treatment plant, we follow our curiosity to the plains of eastern Colorado, the highlands of western Kenya, and deep into the psyche of the 1960s.
