Radio Lab and Beyond

“My name is Rebecca and I’m addicted to NPR.”

“Hi, Rebecca.”

It’s kind of a joke between my husband and I.  If I’m talking about a news story, quoting a statistic or telling an interesting story there’s a pretty good chance it’s come from my local NPR station.

As a stay-at-home mom it can be isolating to be alone with children all day but I’ve found that if I switch on my radio to my local NPR station I can be tuned in to the world.

With that preface, I wanted to share a couple of links to some (relatively) recent programs I’ve heard.

A great program on where morality came from here.

A crazy interesting “This American Life” about kids being bad.

Are baboons always violent?  Find out about one congress of baboons that rocks all conventional thoughts on baboon behavior. 

If you’ve never been a talk radio person I highly recommend you give it a try.  It’s a whole different experience than watching or reading your news.
