Radiolab fan? We are too.

We love NPR's Radiolab. If you haven't listened to it yet, you should.  Check out some of the following episodes:

Blame and the Brain - in which David argues for tossing out blame as an old-fashioned, unfair way of thinking about the law.

Falling - in which David talks about the way time seems to go when you're falling.

Afterlife - in which actor Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) reads several stories from Sum, and David talks about the possibilities for downloading brains into silicon.

Stayin' Alive - in which David talks about an unusual possibility for recovering lost languages.

Sum - a short episode in which Jeffrey Tambor reads the title story from Sum.

And don't miss this incredible video:

Radiolab presents: Moments by Will Hoffman. This film is a celebration of life that was inspired by David Eagleman's book, Sum.

Last I checked, this had 1.5 million views on Youtube.
