A podcast answers questions you didn’t even think to ask.
What has scientific discussions, progressive political commentary and a curious exploration of the human condition?
Answer: Radiolab podcast.
The Peabody award-winning podcast has been running since 2002. A blend of probing journalism and a scientific lens, this American podcast is produced by WNYC Studios.
Hosts Lulu Miller and Latif Nasser explore topics beyond your everyday thinking. From the show’s description: “Radiolab is a curiosity bender. We ask deep questions and use investigative journalism to get the answers.”
Each episode is an hour long, with the February 2023 edition, Golden Goose, well worth seeking out. The episode tells the story of scientists reaffirming the importance of studying even the smallest of notions or unanswered questions, such as snails, and their ability to change the world.
The podcast can be lighthearted and humorous, with fascinating true stories such as Man Against Horse, exploring the hilarious question, could a human being out-run a horse?
If PSA CPSU NSW members are in search of a deep, philosophical exploration of humanity and the extraordinary nature of this world, this podcast is worth a listen.
