Radio Lab: After Life
By Friday, October 2 at noon
ON PUBLIC RADIO 89.5 HD1 – Radio Lab stares down the very moment of passing, and then speculates about what may lay beyond. It's an hour of queries, investigation and dreams, after the mortal coil has been shuffled off. Actor Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) breathes life into a short story by neuroscientist David Eagleman.
