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.

    Why I am a Possibilian

    Our ignorance of the cosmos is too vast to commit to atheism, and yet we know too much to commit to a particular religion. A third position, agnosticism, is often an uninteresting stance in which a person simply questions whether his traditional religious story is true or not true. I call myself a possibilian. Find out why.

How the Internet will save civilization

David's iPad app "Why the Net Matters, or Six Ways to Avert the Collapse of Civilization" was recently called a "superbook" by the New York Times Magazine. For a taste of the argument, read David's article in WIRED or watch a video of his talk at the Long Now Foundation. Don't have an iPad? The manuscript is now available as an eBook.
