Cool Science Radio - October 23, 2014
In this edition of Cool Science Radio, hosts John Wells and Lynn Ware Peek speak first with paleontologist Timothy King. They go with him to Siberia, where melting permafrost is exposing emerging frozen mammoths.
Then, from horror movie scores to national anthems to the crunchy sound of potato chips, sound and music greatly impact how we feel about our lives and the messages and products we encounter every day. They speak with Joel Beckerman, author of The Sonic Boom: How Sound Transforms the Way We Think, Feel, and Buy, to talk about how sound permeates our lives.
All that plus today's Cool Stories. How about an app that allows you to take a image of an algebraic problem and the app then solves it? Plus, how advances in stem cell research have discovered inroads on how to solve diabetes.
