WBEZ’s science experiment, “Clever Apes” is a nano-sized show with a cosmic scope. It tells the stories of the rich scientific community of the Chicago area, its quirky characters and the fascinating, often mind-bending questions they’re out to answer. But it is not so Chicago-centric that it won't work for your town.
