Description

Men - and teenage boys - sometimes act foolishly in front of beautiful women. They are also known to take more risks if they know a woman is watching. Why? This episode begins with an interesting explanation that points to evolution as the reason why. http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2010-03/sp-wdm031810.php

We like to think that the world is fairly predictable and that we have good explanations for why things happen. The fact is we don’t in many cases. Why does one smoker die young while another lives to 100? Why do certain medicines work for some people but not other people? The answer is - no one really knows. Journalist and broadcaster Michael Blastland says that we need to face the fact that so much of how the world works is a total mystery. Michael is the author of a book called The Hidden Half (https://amzn.to/3pCFvt8). Listen as he makes the case that there are unforeseen forces that influence so much of what happens that no one can explain. 

News is a big business. For centuries there have been newspapers, then news magazines, then radio and TV news and now we have 24-hour cable news networks. When you watch or read the news you get the impression that it is really important stuff. But is it? Do people really care what’s going on in the world. Listen to the surprising answer from Rob Brotherton, a psychology and science writer who teaches at Barnard College in New York and is author of the book Bad News: Why We Fall for Fake News (https://amzn.to/3dySmKn). If you are news watcher, you will find what he says to be fascinating. 

Did you know chocolate was responsible (at least partly) for the discovery of the microwave oven? Do you know how much caffeine is in chocolate? And what about the link between chocolate and acne? Listen as I explain some fascinating facts about chocolate you may have never known. http://justfunfacts.com/interesting-facts-about-chocolate/
