Radiolab Every Saturday in May at 6 PM

Every Saturday evening in May at 6 PM, KRTS will be playing an episode from season 9 of Radiolab, the popular show produced by WNYC. Radiolab believes your ears are a portal to another world, where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, and human experience. Big questions are investigated, tinkered with, and encouraged to grow.

This week's episode is "Help!" What do you do when your own worst enemy is...you? This hour, Radiolab looks for ways to gain the upper hand over those forces inside us--from unhealthy urges, to creative insights--that seem to have a mind of their own.

We meet a Cold War negotiator who, in order to quit smoking, backs himself into a tactical corner, and we visit a clinic in Russia where patients turn to a radical treatment to help fight their demons. Plus, Elizabeth Gilbert lays out strategies for doing battle with your muse.
