    City Arts & Lectures Encore: The Brilliance of Sleep with Matt Walker Scientists have long wondered why we power down our brains and spend countless hours in light dreamless slumber. Dr. Matt Walker and his research team at U.C. Berkeley's Sleep and Neuroimaging Laboratory have found compelling evidence for the purpose of this kind of sleep. Their findings suggest that it can solidify newly learned memories by rewiring the architecture of the brain as well as refresh emotional brain reactivity, effectively ironing out our prior waking concerns and allowing for well-rested rational next day decisions. Sleep benefits us not only in learning and memory but also in many other ways that improve our health. He appeared in conversation with KQED's Amy Standen on February 27, 2013.

    Radio Specials Heat and Harvest Like what you see in the supermarket produce section? Enjoy, because things may be changing there -- the prices, even the mix of available fruits, nuts and veggies. Long acknowledged as "the nation's salad bowl," California's farm belt is facing some thorny challenges from our changing climate: rising temperatures, an uncertain water supply and more abundant pests that threaten multi-billion-dollar crops. The half-hour documentary Heat and Harvest, a co-production of KQED and the Center for Investigative Reporting, examines these threats and some potential solutions.
  • 6:30 pm
    Cambridge Forum Comedy's Creative Power to Persuade John Krewson and Joe Garden of The Onion examine the place of comedy in our public discourse, in an era when Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are the news sources of choice for a generation of citizens.

    Marketplace Money Is the Cost of College Really Rising? We hear all kinds of headlines about the growing cost of going to college. But taking inflation into account, are we really pay more now for tuition? The program speaks with David Leonhardt, the Washington bureau chief for the New York Times.
  • 10:00 pm
    TED Radio Hour Memory Games Memory is malleable, dynamic and elusive. When we tap into our memories, where's the line between fact and fiction? Can our memory play tricks on us? Can we train it to be more accurate? TED speakers discuss how a nimble memory can improve your life, and how a frail one might ruin someone else's.
