Limits

PUBLIC RADIO 89.5 HD1 – How much can you jam into a human brain? How far can you push yourself past feelings of exhaustion? In this hour of Radiolab, we examine human limits. We talk to Ironman tri-athletes and hear the memorable tale of a man who couldn't forget. Are we limited by the size of our brain and the strength of our muscles - or will there always be a way to push ourselves just a little bit further? And what about human comprehension? As science barrels forward, will we reach the limit of human understanding?

Listen Friday evening at 8:00 on Public Radio 89.5 HD1.

Animal Minds

PUBLIC RADIO 89.5 HD1 – When we gaze into the eyes of a wild animal, or even a beloved pet, can we ever really know what they might be thinking? Is it naive to assume they're experiencing something close to human emotions? Or, on the contrary, is it ridiculous to assume that they AREN'T feeling something like that? In this hour of Radiolab, we explore what science can say about what goes on in the minds of animals. Guests include: a humpback whale, Paul Thoreaux, camels, Jonah Lehrer, and a bloodthirsty leopard seal.
