WCVE Forum August 14: “Lost and Found”
In this episode, Radiolab steers its way through a series of stories about getting lost, and asks how our brains, and our hearts, help us find our way back home.
We meet a woman who has spent her entire life getting lost, and find out how our brains make maps of the world around us. We go to a military base in New Jersey to learn about some amazing feats of navigational wizardry, and are introduced to a group of people in Australia with impeccable orientation. Finally, we turn to a very different kind of lost and found: a love story about running into a terrifying, and unexpected, fork in the road.
Listen to WCVE Forum on WCVE Public Radio each Sunday at 6:00 p.m.
Each Radiolab program takes a big idea, so big that it lives everywhere, hiding in a thousand places under different names, and we chase that idea, going wherever whim takes us. Along the way, hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich interview, argue, imagine, and discover the hidden connections that make this idea so surprisingly powerful. And the sounds you hear are as new and startling as the ideas we explore. It's Technicolor radio.
Radiolab is produced by WNYC, New York and distributed by National Public Radio.
