Sat, Mar 16, 2013 -- 1:00 PM Sleep

Birds do it, bees do it - but science still can't answer the basic question: why do we sleep? Every creature on the planet sleeps, from giant humpback whales to tiny fruit flies. What does it do for us, and what happens when we go without? Radiolab takes a peek at iguanas sleeping with one eye open, gets in bed with a pair of sleep-deprived new parents and eavesdrops on the uneasy dreams of rats.

Fri, Mar 15, 2013 -- 2:00 AM The Raw and the Cooked

Academy Award-winning actress Frances McDormand hosts an hour of stories produced by The Kitchen Sisters. Included are tales of kitchens that suddenly pop up, kitchens that stay underground to survive and kitchens that are the keepers of a culture. The show travels the country in search of hidden kitchens and little-known corners of American food culture, from the Sheepherder's Ball in the Basque Country in Boise to the breadbasket of California's Central Valley.

Thu, Mar 14, 2013 -- 2:00 AM Driving Growth

A flood of natural gas released by hydraulic fracturing is turning energy markets upside down. What will be the impact on the way America powers its economy and moves people and goods around? Many countries are investing in clean fuels and putting a price on carbon emissions. Will the United States also start to price fuels to include their full costs? How will that impact the economy? The program presents a broad conversation with Fred Krupp, president of the Environmental Defense Fund; and Rhonda Zygocki, vice president of policy and planning for Chevron.
