  4. Alcohol Levels and Wine

    From http://www.graperadio.com/

    Have the alcohol levels in wine gotten too high? And, just what is too high? It’s a controversial subject, and one with many opinions about its relevance in today’s wines. Some say it doesn’t matter at all - “it’s just a number.” Others counter that it takes away from the wine itself, and hastens inebriation. How and why has this become a factor, and does it really matter, or is this a tempest in a wine glass?

    Join us as we talk with Bartholomew Broadbent about the steady increase in alcohol levels in wine - its causes and its effects.

  6. Ginger Campbell - Podcasting Neuroscience

    Ginger Campbell, M.D., is an emergency physician whose long-standing interest in philosophy and science motivated her to begin podcasting in 2006. While her Brain Science Podcast focuses on neuroscience, her other show, Books and Ideas, often explores the intersection between science and religion. She is also the founder of sciencepodcasters.org, which is a site devoted to promoting science through podcasting.

    In this conversation with D.J. Grothe, Ginger Campbell recounts how she first got involved in science podcasting, and why she focuses on neuroscience as her topic. She discusses the impact of Jennifer Michael Hecht’s work on both her intellectual pursuits and her views about atheism and religion. She talks about the trends in neuroscience that may suggest the brain can be "trained" with products such as Brain Age on Nintendo’s DS Lite, or that one’s diet can increase one’s intelligence. She describes "neuroplasticity," and how new brain imaging technologies, such as advanced fMRIs, show that our daily actions can impact specific parts of the brain. She explores the implications of neuroscience for religious belief, and why she has at times resisted the idea of atheism. She shares her reactions to the "New Atheists." And she discusses the increasing attacks on neuroscience from Creationist activists because of what it implies about consciousness, free-will and the existence of the soul.

  7. Semantic Web Gang: Interfaces to the Semantic Web

    With so much effort being devoted to the back-office manipulation and storage of semantic data, it is all too easy to forget the opportunities - and challenges - posed in inviting mainstream users to ‘browse the graph’ of semantic data. With expert contributions from MIT’s David Karger and the DBpedia team’s Christian Becker, the Gang sets about ensuring that the Interface is not forgotten.
