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.  

Below are past episodes of Radiolab before it became a weekly offering on Red River Radio

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.

Adam Cole / WNYC

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?

Radiolab: Colors

Jul 29, 2012

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.

Radiolab: After Life

Jul 22, 2012

Airs Monday, July 23 at 8:00 p.m.  What happens at the moment when we slip from the other side? Is it a moment? If it is, when exactly does it happen? And what happens afterward? It’s an episode full of questions that don't have easy answers. Radiolab stares down the very moment of passing, and speculates about what may lay beyond.
