Today’s podcast is about mobility. Being mobile has become paramount to our capacity to function as a society. No matter where we roam, we’re always on the grid. Even in our most  personal and intimate relationships, the ability to reach one another at a whim has created a degree of interconnected mobility we can’t imagine living without.

We’ll talk with Ann Ross, professor of anthropology North Carolina State University, about using anthropological study of fingerprints to mobilize more effective modes of apprehending criminals.

We’ll also chat with Zi Jing, about the most imagined and coveted form of anonymous mobility–the invisibility cloak.

Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Steve Croft, a UC Berkeley astronomer who helps aid in the search for  extraterrestrial intelligence.

Be sure to watch our video when we take our question of the week out to the streets!

Also you can watch our interview with Steve Croft, a UC Berkeley astronomer who helps aid in the search for  extraterrestrial intelligence.
