WNYC‘s Radio Lab with Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich is one of my favorite radio programs and podcasts of all time. Their latest program explores the world of numbers. According to interviewees on the program all babies think logarithmically until the abstract concept of integers has been systematically drilled into their heads.
It’s a fascinating story, and as usual, permeated with beautifully done sound design. For more on Radiolab checkout “Sound is Kind of Touch at a Distance”, or visit their site for more podcasts of the program.
