    RadioLab Symmetry


    This is an edited version of NPR's RadioLab: Desperately Seeking Symmetry. The original is over an hour long and I don't have that much time to share the entire recording with my class. So, I've cut it down to a little over 24 minutes. I've added images to go along with the story. If this edited version interests you I strongly recommend listening to the entire show which can be found at

    Hope you enjoy this as much as I have.


    This hour of Radiolab, Jad and Robert set out in search of order and balance in the world around us, and ask how symmetry shapes our very existence -- from the origins of the universe, to what we see when we look in the mirror.

    Along the way, we look for love in ancient Greece, head to modern-day Princeton to peer inside our brains, and turn up an unlikely headline from the Oval Office circa 1979.

    BLAME; More About The Radiolab Podcast Please See My Comments For More...


    If MRI can find out probabilities of some events in our lives before they happen, does society need blame? Is guilt the answer? Here I speak of another method. It's not how high you sail but how high you bounce so goes the proverb. Using MRI not just to diagnose, but also AR to heal would save huge cost to the economy. My comments about the Radiolab podcast of the same Blame name!

    The use of AR in the justice system is only one use, other uses are to reduce conversational distractions, these are estimated to cost the economy 50% of it's money, as in on the job distractions. This may also mean much higher employee comfort ratings, these are now lower than before. And it also may help many areas of the economy, reduced debt by reducing stress, reduce the divorce rates, reduce obesity, improve sleep, reduce drug use, improve military strength (the problem of fitness for soldiers is considered to be a major security risk), reduce the crime rate, and more. Here I speak more of it's use for the justice system, but as you can see it may be of real worth. I call it e.g. a relationship defender as I say on my blog Encyclopedia Computoria. Four years ago it was estimated in three years AR would be in general use in the marm business, in another three or four it may trickle down to the consumer, can't wait, so cool. This isn't like a VCR I once saw in high school for 1500, then 30 more years to wait for a 30$ VCR. AR of this type would use all existing hardware and easy to devise software. Recently only the rich have been able to afford peace and golden silence. The truth abounds in quiet places and I think of it as like having warm feet not a luxury but essential to good health. It does real harm to people living by airports, and studies show when a truck goes by at night your blood pressure goes up three hours even if you're asleep. So reducing noise alone would save 300,000 lives a year.

    See my blog Encyclopedia Computoria for more, thanks!

    Invasion of the Pod People: Radiolab, Risk and Genius: Jad Abumrad and Andrew Denton


    'There's no room for serendipity in podcasting for people who don't agree with you. Unless you're one of those people who seeks out disagreement; those people are rare.'

    Radiolab is one of the world’s most popular podcasts. Admired for its gentle explorations of big questions, the show – which was collecting listeners in their millions long before podcasting arrived at the mainstream’s door – has won many significant awards. Abumrad himself has been awarded a prestigious MacArthur Genius Grant, and his incredibly labour-intensive sound designs complement killer editorial instincts and an elegant, accessible sense of curiosity.

    In Melbourne for the first time, Abumrad chats with veteran broadcaster Andrew Denton. Perhaps best known for his landmark interview show Enough Rope, Denton’s first podcast, Better Off Dead – produced in partnership with the Wheeler Centre – topped Australia’s iTunes chart, drew widespread acclaim and stirred passionate public debate about voluntary assisted dying in this country.

    Hear from one of the world’s foremost storytellers about creative discomfort, Australian inspiration, the music of language, the challenges now facing podcasters and communicators, and the hot, curious power of the uncertain.

    Willingly infected with a stomach worm -RADIOLAB


    I caught this radio program late at night and thought it was too awesome not to share with YouTube.

    If you have allergies, Crohn's disease, or any immune system disease then this should be particularly interesting. Jasper sorted himself out like a champ.

    If you are the owner of this audio and wish to have the appropriate credits splashed up somewhere let me know and I'll happily oblige. Or alternatively, if do not want to have it re-produced here then I'll take it down. I did catch it on Australia's public 'Radio National' however ..I didn't have to pay for that. Plus, come on, It's the 21st century. This is how we share things nowadays. It's a great story :)

    Kelsey Padgett - Radio Lab: 60 Words - 2014 Peabody Award Acceptance Speech


    Winner 2014 | WNYC

    60 Words tells the fascinating story of how one 60-word sentence, pieced together in the fraught aftermath of 9/11, became the distinguishing legal marker between war and peace in the United States. Tracing the evolution of the “AUMF” – or “the authorization to use military force” – the program combines recreations, analysis and interviews to chronicle the phrase’s inception, the frenzied discussions over its viability, the pressured congressional voting that ushered it into existence, and its contemporary implications. Together it weaves a riveting patchwork of legal intrigue, political strategizing, moral handwringing and linguistic nuance that has since been used to authorize and justify the Iraq war, the “War on Terror” and other conflicts. A collaborative effort between Radiolab and BuzzFeed, the program is radio at its finest, using sound to artfully recreate the context by which legal and political circles came to authorize the language that would repeatedly permit America’s entry into military conflict. For providing a stunning example of how much language shapes reality, particularly in unsettled circumstances, and of the political, military, legal, ethical and moral costs it extracts, 60 Words receives a Peabody Award.
