Radiolab debuts. Red River Radio will bring Radiolab to our listeners every Tuesday Night at 7 p.m. In This hour, we spend the entire episode on the story of Kelley and Tom, whose daughter was born at 23 weeks and 6 days, roughly halfway to full term. Their story raises questions that, until recently, no parent had to face...an entire universe of questions about the lines between life and death, reflex and will, and the confusing tug of war between two basic moral touchstones: doing no harm, and doing everything in our power to help.
Red River Radio announces programming changes to begin the week of September 30. Several brand new shows will join the line-up while a few older shows will either no longer be aired or will move to the station’s HD3 channel.
The new shows include "Radiolab," “Ask Me Another,” the “TED Radio Hour,” “Mountain Stage,” and “Snap Judgment.” which are all programs from NPR. The station will be removing “From the Top,” “Thistle and Shamrock” and “World Café.” “Fresh Air” will be heard exclusively on Red River Radio’s Digital HD 3 channel and From The Top will move to Red River Radio's HD 2 channel.
Airs Monday, August 6 at 8:00 p.m. Cruelty, violence, badness... This episode of Radiolab, we wrestle with the dark side of human nature, and ask whether it's something we can ever really understand, or fully escape. We encounter a man who scrambles our notions of good and evil, turn to one of the most famous (and misunderstood) psychology experiments ever, talk to a man who chased one of the most prolific serial killers in US history. then got a chance to ask him the question that had haunted him for years: why?
Airs Monday, July 30 at 8:00 p.m. Our world is saturated in color, from the softest hues to the most lurid, violent stains. But it’s hard to put your finger on how something so intangible can have such a visceral punch. This hour, we ask how the pigments around us color our thoughts, and wonder how much of what we see is on the outside...and how much is created in our heads. From Sir Isaac Newton sticking a needle in his eye, to a sea creature that sees a rainbow far beyond what humans can experience.
