More To Life

Life is full of burning questions. Why don't spiders get stuck in their own webs? Do animals have belly-buttons? Why does rain fall in drops and not buckets? To the average person these questions are illusive at best, but to Bob McDonald, host of CBC radio's Quirks and Quarks, finding answers to these questions is all in a day's work. He'll be in to share some of the best questions (and answers) that he's heard over the past decade. This show contains 2 taped pieces, "Wildthings" by Studio2 and Mini-Med "Diverticulitis". Show is phone-in based and viewers can also participate via email.
