Radiolab is a Peabody Award Winning program that merges radio and audio art in a unique way. 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. Bring your curiosity, and we'll feed it with possibility. Radiolab is hosted by Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich and produced by a team of radio artists who take the art of radio to new extremes.

Radiolab: The Afterlife

Airs Monday, March 12 at 8:00 p.m. What happens at the moment when we slip from life...to the other side? Is it a moment? If it is, when exactly does it happen? And what happens afterward?

So, in a slight departure from our regular format, we bring you eleven meditations on how, when, and even if we die.  Guests: Ken Baldwin, Paul Broks, David Eagleman, Gary Greenberg, Adrian Owen, Lee Silver, Jeffrey Tambor, John Troyer, Emily Voigt, Peter Ward and Jan Zalasiewicz

Airs Monday, February 6 at 8:00pm   OK. Maybe you're in your desk chair. You're in your office. You're in New York, or Detroit, or Timbuktu. You're on planet Earth. But where are you, really? This hour, Radiolab tries to find out. How does your brain keep track of your body? We examine the bond between brain and body, and look at what happens when it breaks. First, author and neurologist Oliver Sacks tries to find himself using magnets. Then, a century-old mystery: why do many amputees still feel their missing limbs?
