May 24 Radiolab: Who Am I?The "mind" and "self" were formerly the domain of philosophers and priests. But in this hour of Radiolab, neurologists lead the charge on profound questions like "How does the brain make me?" Listen at 9 a.m. or 9 p.m. PT.
May 17 Radiolab: WordsIt's almost impossible to imagine a world without words. But in this hour of Radiolab, we try to do just that. Listen at 9 a.m. or 9 p.m. PT.
May 10 Radiolab: Musical LanguageIn this hour of Radiolab, we examine the line between language and music. What is music? Why does it move us? Listen Friday at 9am or 9pm.

Apr 12 Radiolab: LaughterWe all laugh. And you'll find that humor has very little to do with it. We ask what makes us laugh? Along the way, we tickle some rats, listen in on a baby's first laugh, talk to a group of professional laughers, and travel to Tanzania.

Mar 22 Radiolab: StressStress may save your life if you're being chased by a tiger. But if you're stuck in traffic, it may be more likely to make you sick. This hour of Radiolab, we take a long hard look at the body's system for getting out of trouble.
Mar 15 Radiolab: SleepBirds do it, bees do it... yet science still can't answer the basic question: why do we sleep? Every creature on the planet sleeps -- from giant humpback whales to teeny fruit flies.
