On this week's show: How sci-fi writer Kurt Vonnegut foresaw many of today's ethical dilemmas, and 70 years of tunas, billfishes, and sharks as sentinels of global ocean health First up this week on the podcast, we revisit the works of science fiction author Kurt Vonneugt on what would have been his 100th birthday. News Intern Zack Savitsky and host Sarah Crespi discuss the work of ethicists, philosophers, and Vonnegut scholars on his influence on the ethics and practice of science. Researchers featured in this segment: Peter-Paul Verbeek, a philosopher of science and technology at the University of Amsterdam and chair of the World Commission on the Ethics of Scientific Knowledge and Technology David Koepsell, a philosopher of science and technology at Texas A&M University, College Station Christina Jarvis, a Vonnegut scholar at the State University of New York, Fredonia, and author of the new book Lucky Mud & Other Foma: A Field Guide to Kurt Vonnegut's Environmentalism and Planetary Citizenship Sheila Jasanoff, a science studies scholar at Harvard University Next, producer Kevin McLean discusses the connection between fishing pressure and extinction risk for large predatory fish such as tunas and sharks. He's joined by Maria José Juan Jordá, a postdoc at the Spanish Institute for Oceanography, to learn what a new continuous Red List Index using the past 70 years of fisheries data can tell us about the effectiveness and limits of fishing regulations. Finally, in a sponsored segment from the Science/AAAS Custom Publishing Office, Sean Sanders, director and senior editor for custom publishing, interviews Joseph Hyser, assistant professor in the Department of Molecular Virology and Microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine about his use of wide-field fluorescence live cell microscopy to track intercellular calcium waves created following rotavirus infection.

Her personal struggle with the unknown has carried her through the twists, turns and glimpses of mysterious realities. Until now she has concealed her knowledge because certain powers threatened to stand in her way. The power of disinformation and ridicule runs deep in its mission to enforce pervasive ignorance and limit access to secret knowledge. Not only has she explored her own paranormal experiences, but she also talked to thousands of UFO contact experiencers, worked on three major studies with them, and became an advocate for these greatly ridiculed people. Her journey took her deep into archival research and experimentation. She gained access to files that reveal remarkable evidence of the governments' secret interest in communicating with our non-human visitors. Most fascinating, she and a team of researchers carried out a multi-year communication experiment in search of answers to their many questions on why extraterrestrials are visiting our planet, how long they have been here, and why they have been coveting Forbidden Knowledge. You'll find the answers inside this fascinating book.BioKathleen Marden is a researcher, author, on camera expert, conference presenter, experiencer advocate, hypnosis practitioner and support group facilitator. She is known as one of the leading UFO contact researchers of our time. Since 1990, she has researched the perplexing nature of UFOs and the non-human entities associated with highly advanced aerial vehicles via her own groundbreaking research, investigation, and experimentation. Her research has extended to archival collections and the US government's involvement in the investigation of UFOs and its major studies. This has combined to give her a depth of knowledge that few possess. She is the 2013 recipient of MUFON's "Researcher of the Year" award and the 2021 recipient of the International UFO Congress "Lifetime Achievement Award".She earned a B.A. degree in social work and was employed as an educator and education services coordinator while attending graduate school. She is a certified practitioner of regression hypnosis and the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique. She has worked on three social research studies, on experiencers of ET contact, two with Ph.D. social scientists. Additionally, she offers the Awakening Souls support group for experiencers who feel an intense calling to be part of the answer and to assist others who are beginning to awaken to their relationship with Non-human intelligence.Her interest in UFOs and contact began in 1961, when her aunt and uncle, Betty and Barney Hill had a close encounter and subsequent abduction in New Hampshire's White Mountains. She spent fifteen years in painstaking investigation of the Hill abduction case and continues to seek the scientific analysis of the compelling evidence.Her bestseller with nuclear physicist Stanton T. Friedman (1934-2019) is “Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience”. She and Stanton worked together for nearly 14 years and collaborated on two additional books “Science Was Wrong” and “Fact, Fiction, and Flying Saucers”. Her book with Denise Stoner “The Alien Abduction Files” includes her investigation of six intergenerational cases of abduction/contact. Her fifth book “Extra Terrestrial Contact: What to Do When You've Been Abducted” is a comprehensive guide to contact for Experiencers, those who love them, professionals who work with Experiencers, and the interested public. Read her latest book “Forbidden Knowledge: A Personal Journey from Alien Abduction to Spiritual Transformation” for deeper insight into Kathleen's own life and works. Her essays have been published in several additional books and magazines.https://www.amazon.com/FORBIDDEN-KNOWLEDGE-Abduction-Spiritual-Transformation-ebook/dp/B09SR6M7K5/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1667549590&sr=8-1https://www.kathleen-marden.com/kathleenmarden@abscigalhttps://www.pastliveshypnosis.co.uk/https://www.patreon.com/alienufopodcasthttps://www.patreon.com/pastlivespodcast

Hell & High Water with John Heilemann

John Heilemann welcomes Jordan Klepper, the correspondent for The Daily Show and two-time Emmy nominee, whose special, The Daily Show With Trevor Noah Presents: Jordan Klepper Fingers the Midterms -- America Unfollows Democracy, premieres November 1st on Comedy Central. They discuss the midterm elections, focusing specifically on the Pennsylvania Senatorial race and the performances of John Fetterman and Dr. Mehmet Oz in their only debate conducted last week; whether it was a wise strategy for Fetterman to debate Oz as Fetterman continues his recovery from a stroke; and Klepper's nuanced approach to talking about Fetterman in front of audiences without appearing offensive or insensitive. They also discuss Klepper's comedic influences, including the British humorists Monty Python, Chris Morris, and Steve Coogan; the author Kurt Vonnegut; and Nobel Prize winner, Bob Dylan; the winding road Klepper took that got him to The Daily Show; the awkward audition process that landed him the gig; and his fabled first appearance on the program that earned the approval of another of his revered comedy mentors, Jon Stewart. Klepper ends the show by talking about his upcoming special; what it's like to engage with the MAGA crowd at Donald Trump rallies; and why he feels that the midterms could be the beginning of the end for America's democracy.

Hello again film chums. Today we finish off a big batch of rare 70's gems, mostly. Please reach out if you want help acquiring any of them. First off we review the film adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's (Happy birthday Wanda June 1971) Rod Steiger and Susan York star in yet another in a very long line of 70's movies based on plays. Also with this one as my English professor used to say “If it gets deep, start swimming.” Next we have (Sandcastles 1972) Which was a made for tv film that sadly sounds a lil more trippy than it is. It is weird though and does have Jan Michael Vincent, and Mariette Hartley from that one episode of Star Trek where Spock gets into primitivism. Travel with us now to (OZ 1976) later called 20th century oz. This is definitely trippy and quite fab n magical in bits. Features the whirlybird pilot in the road warrior. Next up is (A circle of children 1977). Jane Alexander stars as Mary who takes on the treatment of disabled children, bringing us along for the ride. Far from perfect but it does look right at it which was a definite positive step. Willis from different strokes is here, as well as Rachel Robert's as Helga. Movin right along to (Thieves 1977) Marlo Thomas and Charles Gordin, Star in this sadly out of print dark comedy directed by John Berry (Claudine- podcast coming very soon) Would you believe that this film is based off a play. Wow. Finally today we review (Before and after 1979) This is another made for tv film that gets a lot of once taboo stuff out there, so we can talk about it and deal. Here it's weight loss, anorexia, body image, shitty husbands etc. May be the first film to mention anorexia. Omg Betty White plays quite a sadist in this. stars Patty Duke, Barbara Feldon, Art Hindle, and is directed by Star Trek director Kim Friedman. Written by Hindi Brooks. Thanks for listening everyone.

Kurt Vonnegut, also known as Kurt Vonnegut Jr, is an Italian fictional character in the 1883 novel Slaughterhouse 5 by Carlo Collodi. Kurt Vonnegut is an elderly, impoverished woodcarver and the creator (and thus 'father') of Billy Pilgrim. He wears a yellow wig resembling cornmeal mush (called polendina), and consequently his neighbors call him "Polendina" to annoy him. The name Vonnegut is a Tuscan diminutive of the name Giuseppe (Italian for Joseph).

Lewis checks in this week from the Midwest as The Rantcast reaches its 100th episode! Triple digits! A huge THANK YOU to all the fans and ranters for all the support, and of course the rants, as we hit our centennial episode. One of Lewis's stops in the Midwest this week was in Indianapolis, Indiana. While in Indianapolis, Lewis stops by one of his favorite places, the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library. While this may be the 100th episode, Lewis will be celebrating Kurt Vonnegut's 100th birthday on November 11th! One thing our host wants to showcase is the free expression graffiti wall, located just outside the museum and library. Lewis is sure that's something the famed writer would have loved to see.    “And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles. So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.” -Kurt Vonnegut    The live rants come from this past weekend's shows at the Packard Music Hall in Warren, OH and the Victoria Theatre in Dayton, OH.    New episodes arrive every week via The Laugh Button Podcasts.

"When you have a regimen, it's ok to let up on yourself. Because you know that tomorrow, you'll be doing it again."Madison Cunningham firmly believes in the writer's regimen. You have to put in the work every day. None of this "waiting for inspiration" stuff.  "Words on a page every day, even if it's not songwriting," she says.  So she starts each day by writing for ten minutes because everyone can make time for ten minutes. No excuses.Cunningham also reads voraciously. "Books are one of my favorite wells to draw from," she says in this episode. She draws inspiration from iconic writers like Mary Oliver, Sylvia Plath, Flannery  O'Connor, and Kurt Vonnegut.  But books are not her only source of inspiration: dishes are too. Cunningham is yet another in the line of songwriters I've interviewed who gets song ideas while washing dishes. "Every time I've put down the guitar and picked up a dish, I've never regretted it," she says.  Of course, it's not that the act of scrubbing food that gives us song ideas; instead, writing happens subconsciously.  Writers of any stripe need to understand that the writing process happens when we're eating, sleeping, walking, talking, sitting, staring, whatever--even doing dishes, because the mundane activities allow our minds to wander. Cunningham is a two-time Grammy nominee (2019, 2022). Her third and latest album is Revealer.

Dimension X was an NBC radio program broadcast mostly on an unsponsored, sustaining basis from April 8, 1950, to September 29, 1951. The first 13 episodes were broadcast live, and the remainder were pre recorded. Fred Wiehe and Edward King were the directors, and Norman Rose was heard as both announcer and narrator, opening the show with: "Adventures in time and space... told [or transcribed] in future tense..." For two months, beginning on July 7, 1950, the series was sponsored by Wheaties. Overview: Preceded by Mutual's 2000 Plus (1950–52), Dimension X was not the first adult science fiction series on radio, but the acquisition of previously published stories immediately gave it a strong standing with the science fiction community, as did the choice of established writers within the genre: Isaac Asimov, Robert Bloch, Ray Bradbury, Fredric Brown, Robert A. Heinlein, Murray Leinster, H. Beam Piper, Frank M. Robinson, Clifford D. Simak, William Tenn, Jack Vance, Kurt Vonnegut, Jack Williamson and Donald A. Wollheim. Ernest Kinoy and George Lefferts adapted most of the stories and also provided original scripts. In Science Fiction Television (2004), M. Keith Booker wrote: It was not until the 1950s that science fiction radio really hit its stride, even as science fiction was beginning to appear on television as well. Radio programs such as Mutual's 2000 Plus and NBC's Dimension X were anthology series that offered a variety of exciting tales of future technology, with a special focus on space exploration (including alien invasion), though both series also often reflected contemporary anxieties about the dangers of technology. The series opened with "The Outer Limit," Ernest Kinoy's adaptation of Graham Doar's short story from The Saturday Evening Post (December 24, 1949) about alien contact. A week later (April 15, 1950), the program presented Jack Williamson's most famous story, "With Folded Hands," first published in the July 1947 issue of Astounding Science Fiction. With a five-month hiatus from January 1951 to June 1951, the series spanned 17 months. All 50 episodes of the series survived and can be heard today. Later, NBC's X Minus One (1955–58) utilized many of the same actors and scripts.

My name is Bob. You rarely hear from me directly. I'm the senior editor at THN Media. One of my responsibilities is to create the summaries for each episode. Most of the time, it's really fun. Hell, no one even cares if I just make up stuff. But I really don't know what to do about Episode 49. At this week's staff meeting, I suggested that we shove it in a missile casing and launch it toward North Korea. Everyone told me to get back to work. Episode 49 started out fine enough. As you know, special guest Carla from Burnt Korn, Alabama, is also the manager of the local Dairy Queen. Co-host Arik asks her: “When you're cleaning the DQ men's room, instead of using urinal cakes, do you just drop a Dilly Bar in the urinal?” Cute. Well, I thought so. Carla stared hard at Arik, then proceeded to read a lovely hate letter from Nikki Goldenheart: “Hello, my fellow dispensers of Hatorade! Let's keep it simple. I hate vehicles that hog up all of the gas pumps on any one aisle at the gas station—especially Amish passenger vans!” Carla follows this golden epistle by sharing her hatred of websites that refuse a user access until they sign up for the site. Pauly practically has a hategasm over this. That's when things go sideways. Pauly hates idiots—then throws himself on The Hate Napkin. (Clearly, he's just positioning himself for an upcoming Hatey.) Then Arik goes off the rails. He starts with a nostalgic sidebar about Kurt Vonnegut and the heyday of the short story. Then something about lot lizards and cheese curds at the local Kum & Go. Something something The Pooper. Then a story about the time when columnist Dan Savage visited the Columbia City Paper staff. Arik finally concludes with an aborted THN PSA about getting bodily fluids and excrement on the sheets during lovemaking. Arik concludes: “There really isn't any shame—it's all just part of the human experience. We're stuck on this tiny rock in the middle of a galaxy surrounded by billions of other galaxies with billions of stars.” Um, not quite true. Actually, there is quite a bit of shame. And it's called Episode 49. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thehatenapkin/support

Book Vs. Movie: Slaughterhouse-Five The 1969 Kurt Vonnegut Masterpiece Vs. the 1972 Filmed AdaptationThe Margos continue “Banned Book Month” with one of the most controversial works by celebrated author Kurt Vonnegut, 1969's antiwar novel Slaughterhouse-Five: or The Children's Crusade: A Dirty Dance with Death. Vonnegut's fictional account of his real-life experience as a prisoner of war and the WW2 Dresden bombing was published at the height of the Viet Nam conflict and appreciated by millions who loved the science-fiction blend of sex, the futility of war, American hypocrisy, and the meaning of life. The lead character of Billy Pilgrim is “unstuck in time” as he moves from different events in life due to his traumatic war experiences. Captured by the Germans after the Battle of the Bulge, the weak Pilgrim and his cohorts are marched to Dresden during the waning days of WW2, not knowing that the allies were planning to bomb the open city that had approximately 25,000 citizens who were not in the military. By staying in a meat locker underground, he and a few others survive only to have to clean up what is left behind. When he returns home, he encounters aliens from Tralfamodore who bring him to their planet to study him. This is when he learns he can time jump and find out exactly when he will die. In the end, he finds that life has no meaning, and…so it goes. George Roy Hill (The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) directs the filmed adaptation, which stars Michaels Sacks, Ron Liebman, and Valerie Perrine, which made the author very happy. So between the book and the film, which did we like better?In this ep, the Margos discuss:Kurt Vonnegut and his life's work plus his love of comedyBanned Books and recent U.S. issues with this at schools across the nationThe themes of the book (or at least we try!)Why this book is/was bannedThe cast: Michael Sacks (Billy Pilgrim,) Ron Liebman (Paul Lazzaro,) Eugene Roche (Edgar Derby,) Sharon Gans (Valencia,) Valeria Perrine (Montana Wildhack,) Holly Near (Barbara Pilgrim,) Perry King (Robert Pilgrim,) Kevin Conway (Roland Weary,) Frederich von Ledebur (German Leader,) Sorrel Booke (Lionel Merble,) Roberts Blossom (Wild Bob Cody,) John Dehner (Professor Rumfoord,) and Richard Schaal as Howard W.

La ciencia ficción. Su carácter humanista. Y el humor como respuesta a casi todo. Esas fueron algunas de las claves de la obra de Kurt Vonnegut. Pero la idea del episodio de hoy no es repasar el legado del escritor estadounidense sino contar un episodio que lo pinta de cuerpo entero. En 2006, un grupo de estudiantes de Nueva York recibió una tarea particular: escribir cartas a sus escritores favoritos invitándolos a visitar su colegio secundario. Ninguno respondió, salvo Vonnegut. Dijo que no podía hacer la visita, pero los compensó con esta carta preciosa. Un texto lleno de ingenio, de ternura y, por qué no, una lección de vida. Lee el actor Ariel Osiris. *** Estimados alumnos del Colegio Xavier, señora Lockwood y el resto de los profesores: Les agradezco sus amistosas cartas. Seguro que saben cómo animar a un anciano de 84 años en sus últimos años de vida. Ya no hago apariciones públicas porque me parezco cada vez más a una iguana. Lo que tenía para decirles, además, no me llevará mucho tiempo. A saber: practiquen cualquier tipo de arte. La música, el canto, la danza, la actuación, el dibujo, la pintura, la escultura, la poesía, la ficción, el ensayo, el reportaje... No importa lo bien o lo mal que lo hagan. No lo hagan para conseguir dinero y fama sino para experimentar el devenir, para descubrir lo que llevan dentro, para hacer crecer el alma. En serio. Quiero decir que desde ahora mismo hagan arte y haganlo durante el resto de sus vidas. Hagan un dibujo divertido o bonito de la Sra. Lockwood, y regálenlo. Bailen en casa después de la escuela y canten en la ducha y así sucesivamente. Hagan una cara en su puré de papas. Finjan que son el Conde Drácula. Aquí hay una tarea para esta noche y espero que la señora. Lockwood los repruebe si no la hacen: escriban un poema de seis líneas sobre cualquier cosa, pero rimado. No se puede jugar al tenis sin red. Haganlo lo mejor que puedan. Pero no le digan a nadie lo que están haciendo. No lo muestren ni lo reciten a nadie, ni a su novia, ni a sus padres, ni a la señora Lockwood. ¿De acuerdo? Rompanlo en pedacitos y deséchenlo en receptáculos de basura muy separados. Descubrirán que ya han sido gloriosamente recompensados por tu poema. Han experimentado el devenir, han aprendido mucho más sobre lo que hay dentro de ustedes y han hecho crecer su alma. Que Dios los bendiga a todos. Kurt Vonnegut

Encuentra este audiolibro completo en https://bit.ly/abejasgrises_AudiolibroNarrado por: Eugenio BaronaEn Malaia Starogradovka, un pueblo de apenas tres calles en la zona gris de Ucrania, la tierra de nadie disputada en 2014 entre las fuerzas ucranianas y los separatistas prorrusos, solo quedan dos residentes: Serguéi Sergueich, inspector de seguridad retirado convertido en apicultor, y Pashka Jmelenko, amigo y rival suyo desde sus días de escuela. Sin electricidad, con poca comida y con la constante amenaza de los bombardeos, el único placer que le queda a Sergueich son sus abejas, adormiladas por el invierno. Con la llegada de la primavera, tendrá que alejarlas de la zona gris para que puedan recolectar su polen en paz, una misión que lo llevará a conocer a combatientes y civiles de ambos lados de la línea de batalla. Su bondad y su impecable brújula moral irán desarmando a todos los que se crucen en su camino, convirtiendo la salvación de sus abejas en una metáfora sobre la vida en tiempos de guerra. La crítica ha dicho...«Aunque se basa en la cruda realidad de la guerra, Abejas grises se lee por momentos como una fábula. [...] Se enfrenta a un conflicto de gran complejidad moral con delicadeza y cierta ambivalencia. Al leerlo, uno se siente transportado a un tiempo de una inocencia mayor».Keith Gessen, The New Yorker «Un libro cálido y sorprendentemente divertido del mejor novelista vivo de Ucrania».Charlie Connelly, New European «Un Bulgákov contemporáneo. [...] Un Murakami ucraniano».The Guardian «La mirada ingenua de Serguéi permite que Kurkov llegue al corazón de un país desconcertado por la crisis y la guerra, en el que todavía quedan trazos de bondad».Uilleam Blacker, The Times Literary Supplement «Recuerda a Beckett y Pinter, con destellos de Kafka».Strong Words («20 mejores libros del año») «Kurkov en estado puro, con su talento de narrador que sabe emocionar, sorprender y situarse a la altura del ser humano».La Croix «Una especie de Kurt Vonnegut ucraniano».Ian Sansom, Spectator «Un Kafka postsoviético».Daily Telegraph «Extraña y cautivadora. [...] Con una prosa sobria, el novelista más famoso de Ucrania examina sin piedad las confusiones inhumanas de nuestros tiempos y el anhelo del hombre común y afectuoso por hallar la racionalidad del mundo natural».John Thornhill, Financial Times Sobre El jardinero de Ochákov:«Divertida, nostálgica, soviética, postsoviética y honda.

This week, we're going into the City Arts and Lectures archives for highlights from the many times Salman Rushdie has come to San Francisco.  Rushdie is the author of fifteen novels, including Victory City, which is expected to be published in early 2023, as well as non-fiction works and short stories. Of course, he's much in our thoughts these days after being attacked on August 12th, 2022, minutes before he was to appear onstage in New York. In the first half of this program, we'll hear part of Rushdie's most recent visit to City Arts and Lectures in 2017 where he talked with fellow author Michael Chabon.  In the second half, we'll hear excerpts from conversations recorded in 2008, 2010, and 2015 Rushdie had with his most frequent partner on our stage, KQED's Michael Krasny.   Rushdie talks about his writing and the creative process – as well as becoming an unwilling “celebrity fugitive” and spokesman for free speech after the publication of The Satanic Verses.  In these wide-ranging, funny, and thoughtful conversations, he also touches on The Marx Brothers, Kurt Vonnegut, Bollywood, the Wizard of Oz, baseball, and his chance encounters with Donald Trump.

Dimension X was an NBC radio program broadcast mostly on an unsponsored, sustaining basis from April 8, 1950, to September 29, 1951. The first 13 episodes were broadcast live, and the remainder were pre recorded. Fred Wiehe and Edward King were the directors, and Norman Rose was heard as both announcer and narrator, opening the show with: "Adventures in time and space... told [or transcribed] in future tense..." For two months, beginning on July 7, 1950, the series was sponsored by Wheaties. Overview: Preceded by Mutual's 2000 Plus (1950–52), Dimension X was not the first adult science fiction series on radio, but the acquisition of previously published stories immediately gave it a strong standing with the science fiction community, as did the choice of established writers within the genre: Isaac Asimov, Robert Bloch, Ray Bradbury, Fredric Brown, Robert A. Heinlein, Murray Leinster, H. Beam Piper, Frank M. Robinson, Clifford D. Simak, William Tenn, Jack Vance, Kurt Vonnegut, Jack Williamson and Donald A. Wollheim. Ernest Kinoy and George Lefferts adapted most of the stories and also provided original scripts. In Science Fiction Television (2004), M. Keith Booker wrote: It was not until the 1950s that science fiction radio really hit its stride, even as science fiction was beginning to appear on television as well. Radio programs such as Mutual's 2000 Plus and NBC's Dimension X were anthology series that offered a variety of exciting tales of future technology, with a special focus on space exploration (including alien invasion), though both series also often reflected contemporary anxieties about the dangers of technology. The series opened with "The Outer Limit," Ernest Kinoy's adaptation of Graham Doar's short story from The Saturday Evening Post (December 24, 1949) about alien contact. A week later (April 15, 1950), the program presented Jack Williamson's most famous story, "With Folded Hands," first published in the July 1947 issue of Astounding Science Fiction. With a five-month hiatus from January 1951 to June 1951, the series spanned 17 months. All 50 episodes of the series survived and can be heard today. Later, NBC's X Minus One (1955–58) utilized many of the same actors and scripts.

In this episode, Kate first investigates the serial killer Tony Costa, locally known in Massachusetts as the Cape Cod Cannibal. Tony Costa committed a series of murders in the late 1960s. Famous writer Kurt Vonnegut was intrigued by Costa, comparing him to Jack the Ripper. This case is still talked about today in the small town community in which it originated, and several books have been written about Costa which have been quite controversial...Next, Rachael covers the case of 17-year-old Maggie Long, who was burned in a fire in a burglary gone wrong. It was revealed that a physical altercation likely took place during this burglary between Maggie and her assailants. Recently, the FBI has explored the possibility that this was actually a hate crime. Maggie's case is still active, and a reward is being offered for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individuals responsible for her death.

Our society's acquisitive drive for “more” can keep us from experiencing “enough.” Life can hurry by without being truly tasted, savored, or enjoyed, and then be over before you know it. In this episode, we explore what mindfulness is and how it can radically change our experience of every moment, interrupting our tendency to live on automatic and propelling us instead towards life-altering awareness. And we dive into three simple practices you can engage right now, in everyday life, to change your world.

Before Charles Manson, there was Tony Costa—the serial killer of Cape Cod1969: The hippie scene is vibrant in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Long-haired teenagers roam the streets, strumming guitars and preaching about peace and love... and Tony Costa is at the center of it all. To a certain group of smitten young women, he is known as Sire—the leader of their counter-culture movement, the charming man who speaks eloquently and hands out hallucinogenic drugs like candy. But beneath his benign persona lies a twisted and uncontrollable rage that threatens to break loose at any moment. Tony Costa is the most dangerous man on Cape Cod, and no one who crosses his path is safe.When young women begin to disappear, Costa's natural charisma and good looks initially protect him from suspicion. But as the bodies are discovered, the police close in on him as the key suspect. Meanwhile, local writers Kurt Vonnegut and Norman Mailer are locked in a desperate race to secure their legacies as great literary icons—and they both set their sights on Tony Costa and the drug-soaked hippie culture that he embodies as their next promising subject, launching independent investigations that stoke the competitive fires between two of the greatest American writers.Immersive, unflinching, and shocking, Helltown is a landmark true crime narrative that transports us back to the turbulent late 1960s, reveals the secrets of a notorious serial killer, and unspools the threads connecting Costa, Vonnegut, and Mailer in the seaside city that played host to horrors unlike any ever seen before.

In 1999 filmmaker Baz Luhrmann released the song “Everybody's Free To Wear Sunscreen,” a 7-minute-long graduation speech set to downtempo electronic music. It was a highly unlikely hit that made its way across continents and eventually into the ears of a young Avery Trufelman via the album NOW That's What I Call Music Volume 2. For over 20 years, Trufelman has applied the song's advice to her daily life: “wear sunscreen… be nice to your siblings… do one thing every day that scares you.” This unusual song has left a lasting impression, and yet for Trufelman, it makes no sense that “The Sunscreen Song” was commercially successful. We investigate the song's many architects — novelist Kurt Vonnegut, Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Schmich and Baz Luhrmann himself — to unpack one of the internet's first conspiracy theories that turned into Billboard's greatest outlier.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Back in 2002, Jad Abumrad started Radiolab as a live radio show. He DJ'd out into the ether and 20 years later we do the same. To commemorate the 20-year anniversary of the show, the Radiolab team went old school and took over WNYC Radio, went live on the FM band. We answered the phones, played some wonderfully weird audio, including one piece where Kurt Vonnegut, yes that Kurt Vonnegut, interviews the dead, took part in some games and tomfoolery, and did everything we could to have and to share in our good time.
