RISE: Climate Change and Coastal Communities

Airs Monday, August 6 at 8:00 p.m.
Program One: Sounding the Waters

Sea level rise and increasingly extreme weather patterns are two of the impacts of climate change. How are these phenomena created? What effects will they have on our coastlines? To what extent are we feeling them already? And what can we do to adapt to changing conditions? We explore these questions with a visit to San Francisco’s financial district and other spots around the Bay.

Radiolab: Lucy

Airs Monday, July 9 at 8:00 p.m.  Chimps. Bonobos. Humans. We're all great apes, but that doesn’t mean we’re one happy family. Is this kind of cross-species co-habitation an utterly stupid idea? Or might it be our one last hope as more and more humans fill up the planet? 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).

Radiolab: Guts

Guts
Charles Michelet

Airs Monday, June 18 at 8:00 p.m.  This hour, we dive into the messy mystery in the middle of us. What's going on down there? We stick our hand in a cow stomach, get a window into our core through the story of a human science experiment, listen in on the surprising back-and-forth between our gut and our brain, and talk to a man who kind of went out of his mind when a medical procedure left him (for a little while) gutless.

Refuge opens "green" visitor's center focused on education

U.S. Rep. John Fleming (R-Shreveport) speaks at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Red River National Wildlife Refuge's $3.8 million visitor and education center.

The Red River National Wildlife Refuge's new 9,000-square-foot facility will be a launch pad for refuge activities, including hiking, bird watching and berry picking. Officials say thousands of schoolchildren will use the refuge's new educational wing.
