Radiolab: Games

A good game--whether it's a pro football playoff, or a family showdown on the kitchen table--can make you feel, at least for a little while, like your whole life hangs in the balance.

RadioLab: Talking to Machines-Today At Noon

What can machines tell us about being human? This week Jad and Robert meet humans and robots who are trying to connect, and blur the line.
