Detroit Free Press:
Of all the rivalries the Big Ten Conference has created, the fight between its fledgling TV network and a cable giant is the one grabbing headlines nationwide. Ongoing negotiations between the Big Ten Network and Comcast turned ugly last week, and the fight extended to Monday, when U.S. Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., sent a letter of concern about the issue to Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany... Dingell jumps into cable TV showdown (Tue, 6/26)
Detroit Public Radio to present Radio Lab®
Series to airs Wednesday, July 4 from 10am to 3pm and Sundays, July 8, 15, 22, 29 and August 5 at 8pm
An afternoon of video games with a Harvard sleep expert. A first-hand look at the psychological power of the doctor’s white coat. A lesson on the dire effects of sleep deprivation, through the eyes of a new mother. Radio Lab, WNYC Radio’s highly-acclaimed show about wonder, discovery, and big ideas, is back!
The five-part series Radio Lab will air on Detroit Public Radio (WDET 101.9 FM) on Wednesday, July 4 from 10am to 3pm and be rebroadcast in five hour-long segments on Sunday evenings July 8, 15, 22, 29 and August 5 at 8pm.
Radio Lab is a science show for people who think they don’t like science. Often, media coverage of science is largely reduced to either a sexed-up, politically-charged controversy or a dry, lifeless, technical summary of academic findings. Radio Lab breaks the mold, re-creating the thrill of “Aha!” moments in scientific breakthroughs, and bringing to light the ways – big and small -- they affect our everyday lives.
This season, co-hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich tackle five new fascinating topics: Placebo, Sleep, Zoos, Memory and Forgetting and Mortality. They begin with seemingly simple questions – Could the best medicine be no medicine at all? Is there such a thing as a good cage? Is love a more powerful force than memory? – that serve as a launch pad into the unknown. Embarking on a curiosity spree, they unearth the implications of the latest scientific findings, stumble into surprising stories, and traverse philosophy, history, and culture, checking in all along the way with the scientists doing the real work.
The result: a potent elixir of current science, first-person storytelling, radio theatre, and poetic reflection, all wrapped up in some of the most innovative sound design ever to spill out of the radio.
