Radiolab is a work of art. It is a series that does research into seemingly pointless questions, unearthing amazing finds.
I would say it shows how inquiry based research looks like in the real world. Just one episode should send any student out looking for similar answers to their own questions.
Since 2002, Radiolab has been devoted to investigating a strange world. Created by Jad Abumrad and hosted by Jad and Robert Krulwich, Radiolab has won Peabody Awards, a National Academies Communication Award ?for their investigative use of radio to make science accessible to broad audiences,? and in 2011 Abumrad received the MacArthur Genius grant. The show has an archive of hundreds of episodes and has toured in sold out shows nationwide.
