Whether you love to shop or dread a trip to the store...you probably love getting a deal. Check out Jonah Lehrer's post about how "how to go broke while saving money..." which explores the potential brain science behind what turns us all into commodity-hoarding zombies at big box stores like Costco. Hint, there may be an emotional - rational tug of war going on like the kind we explored in the Choice and Morality show.

Radiolab will be waking up on the early side again this week to appear on NPR's Morning Edition. This Friday, in honor of Valentine's Day, Jad and Robert will tell the Morning Edition folks a truly "cosmic" love story. It begins with the idea of sending two golden records into space and ends in true love. We originally shared this story back in our Space episode.

Hey Folks, got some news: Jad will be hosting a book launch party for The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, by Rebecca Skloot. Rebecca's book tells the story of Henrietta Lacks' journey from anonymous tobacco farmer to eponymous cancer cell line, the "HeLa" cell - arguably, the most famous cell line in all of history. (In fact, it is such a good yarn that we got Rebecca to help us tell it in an upcoming Radiolab episode, so keep an eye out).

What are the odds? When Laura Buxton of Staffordshire, England, wrote “Please return to Laura Buxton” on a helium balloon before setting it free in her yard, she never expected it to reach another human being, much less one also named Laura Buxton. In "A Very Lucky Wind," the first segment of our Stochasticity episode, we marvel at the coincidence the two Lauras represent, and wrestle with the science of chance.

Hey everyone, Jad here. I know times are tough, but I wonder if you could help Radiolab out by staying in! Think of it as the Ramen Challenge: cue up an episode from our brand new batch of Season 6 Shows, fire up the tea kettle, and enjoy a tasty bowl of cheap noodles in our honor. Then, send the money you would have spent on dinner (or a movie, or a few drinks with your friends) along to us. Anything you can afford—$10, $25, maybe you can pitch in $75?—will help us make more Radiolab. Thanks so much to everyone who’s already pledged, and to everyone who plans to. We wouldn’t be here without you.

We recently podcasted a video from Will Hoffman called Moments, and we were struck by all of the wonderful comments we received. And, like many of you, we were curious about how he went about making the video. Here's Robert talking to Will about his creative process and how exactly the After Life episode inspired him.
