Afternoon Shift

About

A daily conversation about news, culture and ideas.

Jul. 06, 2012

On Friday's Afternoon Shift, we continue presenting some of our favorite segments from the first 100 episodes.

First, we talk with writer Jonathan Gottschall about his book The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human.

And with the days getting longer, getting a good night's sleep can be difficult. We discuss the science of sleep with Dr. Eve Van Cauter and Dr. Lisa Wolfe of Northwestern University.

Finally, we've got a music-filled show: Ari Picker stopped by to discuss his band Lost in the Trees and their new album A Church That Fits Our Need and London folk-rock band Dry the River perform live in studio in advance of their apperance at Lollapalooza.
