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.
