The Frontal Cortex

Morning Edition

If you want to learn about umami, glutamate, veal stock and Auguste Escoffier, check out this story about Chapter 3 of my book on Morning Edition. It was a special thrill getting to do this with Robert Krulwich, who has long been one of my favorite science reporters.

    I heard it in the car this morning! Good for my kids to get up late this morning so the timing was perfect. A very cool story!

    I heard it on my way to work this morning as well! Close to the end, I heard a mention of “Proust was a Neuroscientist” and I finally clued into why this was a vaguely familiar topic. The ME segment was so fascinating that when I got to work, I sat in my car to listen through to the end. And now I crave veal stock . . . . . mmmmm, deliciousness.

    Awesome! I’ve absolutely loved Robert Krulwich ever since I heard him on Radio Lab (if you’re not listening to this show, you need to be), so needless to say, I’m jealous. Anyway, kudos.

    Great piece on Morning Edition. Your insights and Krulwich’s sense of radio were a perfect combination. What a great way to wake up.
