We hear about his extraordinary insi...

  • Our Origins and The Weight of Space with Lawrence Krauss (April 11, 2013) MP3

    One of the values of science is to make us uncomfortable says Lawrence Krauss. The particle physicist explains why we should all care about dark energy and the Higgs Boson particle. Science literacy matters, and, more importantly, he suggests we should take joy in science -- just as we cultivate enjoyment of arts we may not completely comprehend.

  • The Great Cauldron of Story: Why Fairy Tales Are for Adults Again (March 14, 2013) MP3

    Fairy tales don't only belong to the domain of childhood. Their overt themes are threaded throughout hit TV series like 'Game of Thrones' and 'True Blood,' 'Grimm' and 'Once Upon a Time.' These stories survive, says folklore expert Maria Tatar, by adapting across cultures and history. They are carriers of the plots we endlessly re-work in the narratives of our lives -- helping us work through things like fear and hop...
