This is familiar, right? Just over a month ago, Mike Perry suggested we all direct our attentions towards Radio Lab, a show broadcast on WNYC, New York Public Radio. You may have missed the post, you may have glossed over an admittedly uninspiring logo and moved on. In the past few days I’ve realised just what a goldmine this show is.
It’s a mix of science, culture and music that’s more fascinating and delightful than anything I’ve heard in a long time (the episodes on sleep and music in particular). For one reason or another, I never gave it a chance the first time around. If you did the same, I urge you to give it a try. All episodes are available from the site or as a Podcast directly through iTunes.
