WCVE Forum January 1: “Desperately Seeking Symmetry”
In this hour of Radiolab, Jad and Robert set out in search of order and balance in the world around us, and ask how symmetry shapes our very existence -- from the origins of the universe, to what we see when we look in the mirror.
Along the way, we look for love in ancient Greece, head to modern-day Princeton to peer inside our brains, and turn up an unlikely headline from the Oval Office circa 1979.
Join WCVE Public Radio Sunday at 6:00 p.m. for WCVE Forum.
Radiolab takes a big idea, so big that it lives everywhere, hiding in a thousand places under different names, and chase that idea, going wherever whim takes the 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. It’s Technicolor radio.
Radiolab is produced by WNYC, New York and distributed by National Public Radio.
