Radiolab This Weekend


Tune in this Saturday, July 7, for the latest episode of Radiolab, the popular, Peabody award winning show from WNCY. Radiolab is a show about curiosity. Where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, and human experience. Hear an episode on KRTS every Saturday at 3 PM. And for all you night owls, we replay Radiolab on Sundays at 11 PM.

This Saturday’s topic: Lucy. Chimps. Bonobos. Humans. We're all great apes, but that doesn’t mean we’re one happy family. This hour of Radiolab: stories of trying to live together. A chimp named Lucy teaches us the ups and downs of growing up human, and a visit to The Great Ape Trust in Des Moines, Iowa highlights some of the basics of bonobo culture (be careful, they bite).
