Big Picture Science Radio Show - Geology is Destiny

Geology is big history. If the Ice Age had been a bit warmer, the U.S. might have only 13 states. But humanity has introduced its own geologic era, the Anthropocene. Will our descendants dig up our plastic refuse to study it the way we study dinosaur bones? Also, a new study of the dodo bird shows that its extinction was due to habitat problems, not low IQ.

Big Picture Science Radio Show: Skeptic Check - Fear Itself (ENCORE)

Shhh. We have to make this quick. There are a lot of scary events going on in the world. You may also worry about the stuff they might not be telling you. Don’t share this – but we have strong evidence that both our fear response and our tendency to believe conspiracy theories are evolutionarily adaptive. That’s right – but you didn’t hear it from us!

Big Picture Science Radio Show: What Lies Beneath (ENCORE)

What you can’t see may astound you. Beneath the oceans’ churning surface, oceanographers have recently discovered the largest volcano in the world – perhaps in the solar system. Also, the menace of America’s Cascadia fault, which could unleash a devastating, magnitude 9 earthquake.

Big Picture Science Radio Show: Aliens - The Evidence

In the new film, Arrival, extraterrestrials once again pay Earth a visit. But many believe the aliens are already here. How good is the evidence? And what is the chance that experiments to eavesdrop on distant alien societies might succeed. Also, could aliens be behind the bizarre behavior of two star systems now making the news?

Big Picture Science Radio Show: Hidden History

Archeologists continue to hunt for the city of Atlantis, even though it may never have existed. And paleontologists now suspect that it wasn’t just an asteroid that did in the dinosaurs. Digging into our past can turn ups surprising truths. But are there some things we’d rather not know?

Big Picture Science Radio Show - The Light Stuff (ENCORE):

The light bulb needs changing. Edison’s incandescent bulb, virtually unaltered for more than a century, is now being eclipsed by the LED. The creative applications for these small and efficient devices are endless: on tape, on wallpaper, even in contact lenses. They will set the world aglow. But is a brighter world a better one?

Big Picture Science Radio Show: The Fix Is In (ENCORE)

The moon jellyfish has remarkable approach to self-repair. If it loses a limb, it rearranges its remaining body parts to once again become radially symmetric. Humans can’t do that, but a new approach that combines biology with nanotechnology could give our immune systems a boost. Would you drink a beaker of nanobots if they could help you fight cancer?

Big Picture Science Radio Show: Brain Dust

The brain is a hot research topic, but despite all efforts, your grey matter largely remains a black box – an indecipherable web of neurons with a hidden subconscious agenda. But tiny sensors could shed light on what’s going on in your noggin. Find out what implanted “brain dust” may reveal about who you are.

Big Picture Science Radio Show: Weather Vain

History is replete with attempts to control the weather, but we’d settle for an accurate, seven-day forecast. Find out how sophisticated technology might help us better predict severe storms. Plus the age when “weather forecast” was a laughable idea, weird clouds in the Bermuda Triangle, and a climate scientist who considers the future of geoengineering.

Big Picture Science Radio Show: And To Space We Return (ENCORE)

Earth may be the cradle of life, but our bodies are filled with materials cooked up billions of years ago in the scorching centers of stars. An astronomer tracks down these ancient chemical kitchens. And why, if we return to the stars, we might not be same species as when we left Earth.
