Sat, Apr 6, 2013 -- 1:00 PM Radiolab

Lost and Found -- The program steers its way through a series of stories about getting lost, and asks how our brains, and our hearts, help us find our way back home. It shares stories of confused wandering in humans, learns about the internal navigation system of pigeons, and ends up running into a terrifying -- and unexpected -- fork in the road in a love story.

Fri, Apr 5, 2013 -- 2:00 AM World Affairs 2013: World Affairs Conference

Future Global Challenges for the U.S. -- As part of the World Affairs Council's ongoing focus on transitions, disruptions and innovations that are sure to challenge and inspire, the program hears from Fareed Zakaria, host of "Fareed Zakaria GPS" on CNN, editor-at-large for TIME and columnist for The Washington Post. With election-year politics behind us, the president and the new U.S. administration can no longer afford to wait to tackle a long list of challenges, both at home and abroad. Perhaps more than at any time in recent memory, the world seems unstable or at least unpredictable; an era where political and economic transitions have unintended consequences and unforeseen events cause major disruptions in global politics and the world economy. Zakaria will put these issues in perspective and consider the best future course for the United States.
