If you're interested...

If you guys enjoyed listening to the RadioLab podcast then you should check out this week's This American Life podcast (100% free on iTunes). This American Life is hosted by Ira Glass and every show has a different topic and explores several stories from average people on that topic. This week's topic is called "Parent Trap", basically focusing on stories where parents have tried to do something nice for their kids,with their best interest at heart, often leading to unwanted or unexpected results.

One of the contributors for this week's story is...RadioLab!!! Every so often RadioLab makes an appearance on the show and tells some very interesting story relating to the topic of the week as well as to science. This week the people from RadioLab tell a story about a chip who was raised twice, once as a human child and once as a chimp. Very Very cool stuff.
