The 1940s ushered in the Golden Age of antibiotics. Dr Selman Waksman of Rutgers University did pioneering work in the field and eventually discovered streptomycin, which earned him hundreds of thousands of dollars in patent payoffs, countless accolades over decades and eventually the Nobel Prize. Only he did not really discover streptomycin alone and therein lies one of the most fascinating and tragic stories of ego, money and hard science of the 20th Century.

Russell Malone At The KC Jazz Club

Friday, June 8, 2012 - 6:00pm

In his current guitar/bass/drums trio -- "not having the piano there taking up all that space," Russell says -- Malone lets the music breathe into his full, round, rich tone. This is not to say that he doesn't play exuberantly. He uses his most amazing chops to serve the songs. The up tempo tunes swing, the ballads melt.

Two-time Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Rickie Lee Jones has been pushing down musical boundaries for over four decades with her hauntingly beautiful voice and fearless experimentation. She has carved her own unique path, collaborating with artists from Alison Krauss to Dr. John. On this Song Travels, Jones employs her sultry, dynamic voice to sing some of the standards that have inspired her along the way.

Julie Zickefoose & Sam Kean

Sunday, June 3, 2012 - 9:00pm

Inquiry welcomes back artist, writer and natural historian JULIE ZICKEFOOSE to talk about her new book THE BLUEBIRD EFFECT: UNCOMMON BONDS WITH COMMON BIRDS. This sumptuous and fascinating book details her decades long experiences in rehabilitating young birds and is one of the best natural history books published this year. Rehabilitating nestlings is hard, frustrating, time consuming work that is also very rewarding because you get to know the birds intimately in a way no birder or even most ornithologists do.
