  1. eLife podcast episode 1 on historical potato blight

    Welcome to the first eLife podcast, which covers topics as diverse as the origins of multicellularity, what modern sequencing technology can tell us about the potato famines of the 1840s, the discovery of the receptor for the hepatitis B and D viruses, the effect of fog on the behaviour of car drivers, and the evolution of chromatin.

    Episode 171 :: Moogfest Bound with YACHT & Omni’s Claire Evans

    Posted by NerdyShow on March 25, 2014

    Sci-tech, sci-fi, and synths collide as our Moogfest interview series continues!

    Moogfest is a festival focused around electronic music with symposiums on futurism, art, and technology (April 23rd-27th, in Asheville, NC) and leading up to it, Nerdy Show is speaking with some of the incredible talent that’s been culled for this year’s event. In this episode, Cap and Jon talk with renaissance woman, Claire Evans – performer in the band YACHT, and Editor At-Large of Omni Reboot, the digital reincarnation of the legendary science and science fiction magazine, Omni.

    She’s not only performing at Moogfest, she’s putting on a panel called “Xenomusic: Science Fiction and the Synthesized Sound” where artists, musicians, and scientists will muse on what music will sound like in the future and what it might sound like on other worlds.  Join us as we tiptoe the thin line between possible futures and the future present, discuss bringing Omni back from the dead, Philip K. Dick, what’s new with YACHT, growing up with computers, genetically engineering bacteria, and a slew of sciency subjects.

  4. Gravitational Waves from the Big Bang

    http://www.wnyc.org/story/gravitational-waves-big-bang/

    This week, scientists announced that they’ve found evidence of gravitational waves, a long-predicted twist in light from the Big Bang. The finding offers proof of the theory that the universe expanded extremely quickly in the first fraction of a second after it was born. Clara Moskowitz, an associate editor at Scientific American, explains what this discovery means and what it tells us about the creation of the universe.

  10. The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind

    For the first time in history, the secrets of the living brain are being revealed by a battery of high tech brain scans devised by physicists. Now what was once solely the province of science fiction has become a startling reality. Recording memories, telepathy, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis are not only possible; they already exist.

    The Future of the Mind gives us an authoritative and compelling look at the astonishing research being done in top laboratories around the world—all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics.

    One day we might have a "smart pill" that can enhance our cognition; be able to upload our brain to a computer, neuron for neuron; send thoughts and emotions around the world on a "brain-net"; control computers and robots with our mind; push the very limits of immortality; and perhaps even send our consciousness across the universe.

    Dr. Kaku takes us on a grand tour of what the future might hold, giving us not only a solid sense of how the brain functions but also how these technologies will change our daily lives. He even presents a radically new way to think about "consciousness" and applies it to provide fresh insight into mental illness, artificial intelligence and alien consciousness.

    With Dr. Kaku’s deep understanding of modern science and keen eye for future developments, The Future of the Mind is a scientific tour de force—an extraordinary, mind-boggling exploration of the frontiers of neuroscience.
