WCVE Forum June 19: “Oops”
In this WCVE Forum program, Radiolab presents stories of unintended consequences. You come up with a great idea. You devise a plan. You control for every imaginable variable. And once everything’s in place, the train hops your carefully laid tracks.
In this episode, one psychologist’s zeal to safeguard national security may have created a terrorist, while one community’s efforts to protect an endangered bird had deadly consequences. And against all odds, a toxic lake spawns new life.
Guests: Alston Chase, Michael Cohen, Edwin Dobb, Barret Golding, Ruben Gur, Rita Halbeisen, Ron Lanner, Andrea Stierle, Don Stierle, Pat Walters and Ben Zimmer.
Tune in to WCVE Public Radio Sunday at 6:00 p.m. for WCVE Forum.
Radiolab takes a big idea, so big that it lives everywhere, hiding in a thousand places under different names. They chase that idea, going wherever whim takes them. Along the way, hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich interview, argue, imagine, and discover the hidden connections that make this idea so surprisingly powerful. And the sounds you hear are as new and startling as the ideas they explore. It’s Technicolor radio.
