RadioLab, a science radio show created by WNYC in New York, is a little unusual for a public radio show. It comes out in short seasons of about five episodes. Each episode addresses a particular question in science through a wide lens–I found their most recently podcast show, on Morality, to be particularly fascinating. We’re adding the new show to our collection of Science Podcasts. Check it out for yourself!
I haven’t checked out this podcast but the subject of their most recent show reminded me of an excellent BBC radio program called The Moral Maze. It’s usually a provocative but intelligent discussion and, although they often invite various religious perspectives to weigh in, no one gets away with a poorly reasoned argument.
Thanks, Scott! I listened to one of these–I really like the debate style of the show. I wish the BBC would provide more shows as podcasts. The RealAudio streaming is such a pain.
