They Might Be Giants just came out with a new album, “Here Comes Science.” So we invited them to come play with us at our season launch party last week at the Water Taxi Beach in Queens. And then we ambushed them with annoying little questions about science and about the tricky business of turning science into entertainment … because of that whole, you know, “getting the facts right” thing. On this podcast, we decided to share this magical evening with those of you who weren’t able to join us live. Hope you enjoy the music, pesky science teachers, and miasmas of plasma.

"Radiolab dedicates this hour to an exploration of numbers. Those pesky little things on the chalkboard. Where do they come from and what do they really do for us? We bring you stories on how they confuse us, connect us, and reveal secrets about us."
"On this podcast, an episode from the very first season of Radiolab: unlocking the mysteries of Time. We stretch and bend it, wrestle with its subjective nature, and wrap our minds around strategies to standardize it."
