Radiolab is one of my absolute favorite NPR shows and I want to introduce an episode that makes my top ten list. As always, the show is produced with incredible skill. Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich get us to experience how other animals see the world. I was especially impressed because of how artfully they use the sense of sound to intricately describe the sense of sight. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did: Color – Radiolab (May 21st, 2012)
I am always thinking about how colors interact with each other and as a kid I always struggled with the concept that we all see things differently. Even within our own species, we have such variability in our perspectives; it is hard to put something together for everyone’s eyes.
Oh, also, the Mantis Shrimp or as Radiolab describes it “the pugnacious Mohammed Ali, sea going animal, with incredibly great visual sense” is now my all time favorite sea creature.
