I had a great time interviewing Gabriel Spitzer, host of WBEZ's Clever Apes, on how he produces such great local science stories for radio. On the Open Notebook!

Loved this hour of radio on olive oil - so much intrigue! I'll have to read the book. Not surprisingly (if you read his first New Yorker article), there's much to be wary of in the grocery stores...

I heard Pinker speak about the data in his new book at NASW - and this profile by +Carl Zimmer is a fascinating look at the man behind the book...
In his latest book, Steven Pinker, a leading advocate of evolutionary psychology, says our brains have produced a far less violent world.

We keep exporting our hazardous waste - e-waste to China and Asia, now this great story on the horrible results of lead battery recycling in Mexico. Horribly wrong.
The used batteries Americans turn in for recycling are increasingly processed in Mexico, their lead often extracted by crude methods that are illegal in the United States.
