Radiolab wraps 2015 with a series of special episodes. This hour the producers take center stage and celebrate one of their favorite episodes.
The Haber story is example of unresolved karma created in his life and passed along to his family, and they paid with their lives. Brothers Karamazov is based on human nature. Why try to end story by saying he did good in his life rather than discuss the real phenomenon of tragedy and how it ripples forward.
Hieronymus Fortesque Lickspittle, God approved it, but did not tell Satan to do it.
When they recount the story of Job they correctly state that it was Satan that wreaked havoc on Job's life but what they leave out was it was God that told him to do it.
It's obvious that Haber was evil, no matter what he discovered or how much good came from it, only complete evil could behave as he did. I see no question in this matter.
Sam Fuller: It is the Agnus Dei from Bach's Mass in B Minor.
I'm still listening, so maybe they'll touch on it later in the show. The show opened with stories of relationship violence, but misogyny and domestic violence against women was not mentioned... Seems like an obvious point to make.
How does the Haber story go from explosives to chlorine gas? What does the Haber process have in common with the deployment of chlorine gas in WWII?
What is the aria that starts at 34:10? Anyone know? I would love to know. It's beautiful and haunting.
Funny, this episode was posted yesterday and after listening to it, it disappeared! Then I realized it was posted a day early and now here it is. Great as usual!
This was the first episode I heard from Radiolab(and from any podcast actually) and was the episode that got me hooked. From that day on it has changed my life. Thanks a lot Radiolab.
