Picture_2_small Libya, London, Egypt – the map of unrest and revolution around the world right now is vast. In Sudan, it led to the country separating in two. Now Jeff Stone, a county supervisor from Riverside, wants something similar to happen, right here in California. NEWSCASTER: Stone wants to form a new state. He wants to call it South California. The new state would be made up of 13 counties, but would not include L.A. or Ventura counties. Stone says he wants succession [sic] from – quote – “the liberal arm of California.” This may be a radical idea, but it’s hardly a new one, as KALW’s Steven Short tells us in this report.

Squeezebox Stories, a sound-rich, narrative-driven public radio documentary hosted by Marco Werman of PRI's The World, explores the rich musical worlds and diverse social history of the accordion.

The accordion is about much more than the Polka; it's one of the first global instruments. Played all over the world, from Italy to China to Zanzibar, the squeezebox is a great vehicle for telling immigration stories.

In this hour-long special, listeners go on an accordion tour, visiting Zydeco dance halls and Mexican Norteño clubs, punk rock apprentices and Arabic master musicians-all to discover what's behind the surprisingly wide appeal of this ultimate people's instrument.

This week Alok Jha meets the historian Dava Sobel, author of the worldwide best seller Longtitude to discuss her latest adventure into science history A More perfect Heaven, how Copernicus Revolutionized the Cosmos. Alok discusses with Dava the little explored relationship between Copernicus and his follower and friend Rheticus and how Copernicus deftly balanced his brilliant astronomical insights alongside his place within the Catholic church.

Guardian Science Correspondent Ian Sample joins Alok to discuss two of this week's big science news stories. Firstly the discovery of Australophitecus sediba in South Africa and why these early humanoid remains may be an important link in the evolution of homo sapiens. And Ian and Alok discuss a recent survey of attitudes to nuclear power in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan.

Clever Apes: Biological weapons

Just a week after the September 11th attacks, nerves still raw, America was hit with its worst-ever biological attack. The anthrax letters set off a new wave of panic, and reminded scientists how little we understand some of the world’s most dangerous germs. So the government chartered 13 labs to study these pathogens, as well as aggressive infectious disease agents. Given that the anthrax strain sent through the mail was thought to have been stolen from a lab, it’s no surprise that the new labs are highly secure. But Clever Apes got inside one.

The Howard T. Ricketts Laboratory is run by the University of Chicago, and located on the campus of Argonne National Laboratory. In the latest installment of Clever Apes, we largely skip over the science, and consider instead what it’s like to work at a place like the Ricketts lab. How do you take a coffee break when you’re in containment? How does your pizza delivery guy get through multiple layers of security? Do you worry about bringing plague home to your kids?


For another take on biological warfare, we head to the “wet lab” at the Field Museum, where Leo Smith specializes in venomous fish. It turns out there are many, many more of them than there are venomous snakes or scorpions, and yet we know next to nothing about them. Smith says the ever-growing catalog of known venomous fish could be a treasure trove for developing new drugs.

Picture_3_small Stand on the beach overlooking Half Moon Bay, and the sound you’re most likely to hear is of waves crashing against the rocks. But when Roger Bland climbed up there, he wanted to hear what was underneath those waves. That’s because Bland is an acoustic physicist. He studies sea life by using a series of underwater microphones called hydrophones. That’s how Bland records the sounds of the Bay: He also heard whales. Whales of all kinds, but specifically the blue whale, which is the largest known mammal on earth. KALW’s Martina Castro went to speak with Roger Bland in his laboratory at SF State, and he explained to her how he went about recording the calls of these underwater giants.

Picture_2_small Whether it’s ice cream, chocolate, pickles, or pizza, most of us know the feeling of a food craving. But some people think it’s more than that – they think we can be addicted … to food. “Addiction” is a strong word. It implies a certain loss of control, and a change in brain chemistry. That’s why the notion of food addiction is debated among California scientists who study obesity and addiction. Rebecca Wolfson joined Anders Lammers and Anja Strejcek from the News21 program at the UC Berkeley Journalism School in trying to better understand the inner struggle of self-described food addicts – through their stories and through science.
