Quirks and Quarks from CBC Radio

CBC Radio

CBC Radio's Quirks and Quarks covers the quirks of the expanding universe to the quarks within a single atom... and everything in between.

Listen to the last episode:

We end our season with our ever-popular, always fascinating listener question show. In this show we'll answer listener questions like: Why humans don't have a tail - even though we have a tailbone? What would happen to your body if you were to die in space? Why the immune system doesn't permanently get rid of herpes viruses? Why the Earth hasn't cooled through 4 billion years of floating in frigid space? Why we can't remember our early years of life? Why mammal poop is brown while bird poop is white? And much, much more.
