Radio Lab® is an investigation. Each episode is a patchwork of people, sounds, stories and experiences centered around One Big Idea. On Radio Lab, science bumps into culture... information sounds like music.
Radio Lab is designed for listeners who demand skepticism but appreciate wonder, who are curious about the world but who also want to be moved and surprised. - radiolab.org
So far I've listened to shows from season 2 titled Detective Stories, Morality, and Musical Language. Each hour long episode of stories and sounds was better than the last. The best way I can describe Radio Lab® is fun, thought provoking entertainment and I highly recommend giving it a listen. Seriously, turn off the TV and just listen for 2 mintutes. Thats all it takes for Radio Lab® to captivate its audience.
