Mortality

06/28/2014 - Is death a disease that can be cured?  We filter the modern search for the fountain of youth through personal stories of witnessing death - the death of a cell, the death of a loved one...and the aging of a society.

Musical Language

06/21/2014 - What is music? Why does it move us? How does the brain process sound, and why are some people better at it than others?

We re-imagine the disastrous debut of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring in 1913 through the lens of modern neurology, and we meet a composer who uses computers to capture the musical DNA of dead composers in order to create new work.

The Power of Art in A Changing Middle East

06/26/2014 - Film, music, and art are often the best ways to capture the will and the mood of the people in times of turmoil.  Art sometimes has the power to move millions where politics fails. So in this program we attempt to identify some prominent artistic voices in the Middle East, North Africa, and in South Asia and evaluate their take on liberal ideals, on sectarian violence, on terrorism and how they're being received by audiences in both the Arab and Muslim communities and in the West.

Eduardo Galeano - A Calendar of Human History

Eduardo Galeano, from Uruguay, is one of Latin America’s most distinguished writers. He is the recipient of many honors including the Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom and the American Book Award. His groundbreaking books, Open Veins of Latin America and the Memory of Fire trilogy changed the way we look at Latin America with its rich and complex cultures, traditions and political currents. His most recent book is Children of the Days.

06/23/2014 - When looking into the past, the great historian Howard Zinn said, "We never get 'just the facts.'" We often get glaring omissions and distortions. History is always a selection from an infinite number of facts. And what is selected is based not just on one's personal interest but on race, class, gender, and other factors. A true picture of the past is rarely achieved, and never by presenting "just the facts." Historians need the eyes of thousands of people, the ears of poets, a nose for secrets, the hands of a master painter.

Kathy Kelly - Afghanistan: Beyond the Propaganda

Kathy Kelly, a leading activist in the peace movement, is a multiple nominee for the Nobel Prize. She is co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. She has been to Iraq, Afghanistan and other war zones scores of times. She is the author of Other Lands Have Dreams.

06/16/2014 - The pretext of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001 was the September 11 attacks. Washington announced it was pursuing Osama bin Laden. But very quickly the Bush administration changed its objective to include the overthrow of the Taliban regime in Kabul. That mission switch precipitated the longest war in U.S. history. Washington and its NATO allies have said they are withdrawing their forces at the end of 2014. But it seems almost certain that U.S. troops will remain in Afghanistan.

The Barber of Seville

06/21/2014 - Composed by Gioacchino Rossini

The eponymous barber Figaro (baritone Nathan Gunn) is the ultimate fixer in this rollicking comedy. He struts his stuff in the famous "Largo al factotum" aria, "Figaro, Figaro, Figaro!" He takes sides in a love triangle, helping Count Almaviva (tenor Alek Shrader) woo and win the beautiful Rosina (mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard) from her old, lecherous guardian Dr. Bartolo (baritone Alessandro Corbelli).

New Normal

06/14/2014 -

In this hour of Radiolab: reframing our ideas about normalcy. Evolution results from the ability of organisms to change. But how do you tell the difference between a sea change and a ripple in the water? Is a peacenik baboon, a man in a dress, or a cuddly fox a sign of things to come? Or just a flukey outlier from the norm? And is there ever really a norm?

Who Are You?

06/07/2014 -

This hour of Radiolab centers around a chilling question: how well can you ever really know the people around you?

We talk to neuroscientists, primatologists, actors, zookeepers, and fathers who are all trying to get inside another’s mind--from how a newborn sees his dad, to a rare disorder that turns family members into impostors.
