Not sure if any of you listen to podcasts, but this one's pretty neat. It's from New York Public Radio. Every week, these guys take a scientific question – like why do we age? why do we fall in love? where does our sense of morality come from? – and they explore it with journalism and theatrics.
The mortality one was intensely interesting and entertaining. Just thought it might be something you'd be interested in. You can either visit their website or you can find it through the iTunes store too of course.
