The Memory Palace Guest: Nate DiMeo, creator of the podcast "The Memory Palace" Nate DiMeo created a podcast 10 years ago called "The Memory Palace" as a side hobby. It has become so successful that now it’s his full-time job and it even earned him a place as the Metropolitan Museum’s Artist in Residence a couple years ago. Sooner Than You Might Think: Humans on Mars Guest: Stephen Petranek, journalist and author, "How We'll Live on Mars" In the very near future, we could be landing people on Mars. The first person who will set foot on Mars is likely alive today. Here's what we'd need to live on the red planet. Splendid Frogs Guest: Andrew Gray, Curator of Herpetology, Manchester Museum Welcome to the world of the Splendid Leaf Frog. We'll take you deep into the Costa Rican forest. And we also get a behind-the-scenes look into how scientists decide that they're looking at two different species.
