Sum

For meditation number fifteen we have a reading from David Eagleman's book Sum. It's a vision of the after life that's both playful and... horrifying. Sum is read by actor Jeffrey Tambor. http://www.radiolab.org/story/91917-15-sum/

Radiolab's Jad Abumrad & Robert Krulwich on the Meaning of Endings - The Takeaway

This fall, the staff of WNYC's Radiolab is producing their second multi-city tour, Apocalyptical. In this new live stage performance, Radiolab turns its gaze to the topic of endings, both blazingly fast and agonizingly slow. With their signature blend of storytelling, science, and music, hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich romp through hundreds of millions of years of history to arrive at the end, again and again. There's a different guest for each show, including Reggie Watts, Patton Oswalt, Simon Amstell, Ophira Eisenberg and Kurt Braunholer. Plus a cinematic live score created on stage by On Fillmore and Noveller, this tour is likely to be another success for the radio program. Jad and Robert join The Takeaway today to discuss some of the topics they're exploring and how we look at endings today. http://www.thetakeaway.org/story/radiolab-jad-abumrad-robert-krulwich-meaning-endings/

Have You Heard About B Flat? : Krulwich Wonders... : NPR

For reasons that remain mostly mysterious, the note we call "B flat" does the oddest things. It aggravates alligators, it lurks in the stairwell of an office building, and it emanates from a supermassive black hole 250 million light years from Earth. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=7442915

A Mystery: Why Can't We Walk Straight? : Krulwich Wonders… : NPR

Try this: Put a blindfold on someone, take them to a park or a beach or a meadow and ask them to walk for as long as they can in a straight line. Then watch what happen. http://www.npr.org/blogs/krulwich/2010/11/03/131050832/a-mystery-why-can-t-we-walk-straight
