The Music of La Mancha Screwjob

radiolab.org — (Illustration Credit: Matthew Kielty, Latif Nasser) Radiolab is a very musical show, and I sometimes get more credit for that than I deserve. For our last episode, which was about authenticity and realness (as filtered through professional wrestling and Cervantes), I put out a request on Facebook for songs that include the lyrics "is this real?"

Insect Army (Job van der Molen)

designandviolence.moma.org — From the curators: In preparation for "unforeseen enemy attacks," Dutch artist Job van der Molen has gradually created his own private insect militia, complete with laser guns, missile racks, and rocket launchers. A practitioner of the delicate process of taxidermy, Molen has weaponized a range of tiny insects, transforming them into six-legged war machines.

Digital Shamanism - Radiolab's Old-Fashioned, Newfangled Storytelling Magic

bigthink.com — Transcript Jad Abumrad: I do feel like the kind of storytelling that I do is somehow independent of the technology that delivers it. I mean, I do happen to work on the radio, and I'm a guy who likes sound, so, in that sense, this technology does suit me.
