  1. James West On Invention And Inclusion In Science

    James West has been a curious tinkerer since he was a child, always wondering how things worked. Throughout his long career in STEM, he’s also been an advocate for diversity and inclusion — from co-founding the Association for Black Laboratory Employees in 1970 to his work today with The Ingenuity Project, a non-profit that cultivates math and science skills in middle and high school students in Baltimore public schools.

    Host Maddie Sofia talks to him about his life, career, and about how a device he helped invent in the 60’s made their interview possible.

  2. How Octavia Butler’s Sci-Fi Dystopia Became A Constant In A Man’s Evolution

    It was middle school, eighth grade, when a sheltered 13-year-old boy suddenly found himself immersed in an unfamiliar world, guided by a girl who wasn’t much older, a girl on the verge of leading a religious movement.

    At first glance, it might appear as if all they had in common was age, but there was more. They were both growing up in religious households — she a Baptist in a walled community outside of Los Angeles, he a Muslim in suburban Maryland. And they shared a burning desire to understand the constantly evolving, confusing world they occupied.

    The boy was me. The girl, Lauren Oya Olamina, is, of course, the main character in Octavia Butler’s classic science fiction novel Parable of the Sower. We were introduced by an adventurous middle school English teacher who assigned the book to my class.

  3. Initiative der Landesmedienanstalten - Medien-Aufseher gehen gegen rechte Online-Medien vor

    Erstmals müssen bestimmte Online-Medien ihre Arbeit gegenüber den Landesmedienanstalten rechtfertigen: Die Aufsichtsbehörden werfen unter anderem KenFM oder dem AfD-nahen "Deutschland-Kurier" vor, gegen journalistische Grundsätze verstoßen zu haben. Den Angeboten drohen deshalb Sanktionen.

  4. Menschenexperimente - Robert Koch und die Verbrechen von Ärzten in Afrika

    Zu Kolonialzeiten war es üblich, dass Forscher skrupellos mit Afrikanern experimentierten, allen voran die Deutschen. Auch Robert Koch zwang kranke Menschen in Konzentrationslager und testete an ihnen neue Gegenmittel. Die Gräueltaten der kolonialen Tropenmedizin wirken bis heute.

  6. In Our Time: Eclipses

    Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss solar eclipses, some of life’s most extraordinary moments, when day becomes night and the stars come out before day returns either all too soon or not soon enough, depending on what you understand to be happening. In ancient China, for example, there was a story that a dragon was eating the sun and it had to be scared away by banging pots and pans if the sun were to return. Total lunar eclipses are more frequent and last longer, with a blood moon coloured red like a sunrise or sunset. Both events have created the chance for scientists to learn something remarkable, from the speed of light, to the width of the Atlantic, to the roundness of Earth, to discovering helium and proving Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity.
