Stress

1/18/2014 - STRESS - Stress may save your life if you're being chased by a tiger.  But if you're stuck in traffic, it may be more likely to make you sick.  This hour we take a long hard look at the body's system for getting out of trouble.  Stanford University neurologist (and  part-time "baboonologist") Dr. Robert Sapolsky takes us through what happens on our insides when we stand in the wrong line at the supermarket, and offers a few coping strategies.  Plus:  the story of a singer who lost her voice, and an author stick in a body that never grew up.

Blood

1/11/2014 - BLOOD - From medicine to the movies, the horrifying to the holy, and history to the present day  -- we consider the power and magic of the red liquid that runs through our veins.  We meet an artist who opened his veins and got labeled a terrorist, douse ourselves in the meat and metaphors of blood in Shakespeare, wonder if clues to a gory fountain of youth could be lurking in the red blood cells of mice, and trace the complicated supply chain that gets blood from arms to operating tables.

Time

1/4/2014 - TIME - This hour of Radiolab, we try our hand at unlocking the mysteries of time.  We stretch and bend time, wrestle with its subjective nature, and wrap our minds around strategies to standardize it...stoppign along the way at a 19th-century railroad station in Ohio, a track meet, and a Beethoven concert.

Bliss

12/28/2013 - BLISS - Moments of total, world-shaking bliss are not easy to come by.  Maybe that's what makes them feel so life-altering when they strike.  And so worth chasing.  This hour: stories of striving, grasping, tripping, and falling for happiness, perfection, and ideals.  From one man's quest to save the world by inventing a new language, to an explorer who hits the jackpot when he uncovers a double-pack of Cheez Doodles on an expedition to the South Pole.

The Good Show

12/21/2013 - In this episode, a question that haunted Charles Darwin: if natural selection boils down to survival of the fittest, how do you explain why one creature might stick its neck out for another?  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?

The Bad Show

12/14/2013 - Cruelty, violence, badness...This episode of Radiolab wrestles with the dark side of human nature, and asks whether it's something we can ever really understand or fully escape.  We reconsider what Stanley Milgrim's famous experiment really revealed about human nature, meet a chemist who scrambles our notions of good and evil, and talk to a man who chased one of the most prolific serial killers in US history...then got a chance to ask him the question that had haunted him for years:  why?
