Bay Area Beats: Flesh World

Flesh World
Melissa Farley

In our latest episode of Bay Area Beats we'll hear from the band Flesh World. They've been playing together in San Francisco since 2012. Guitarist Scott Moore comes from the hardcore punk scene while singer Jess Scott used to play a punk genre called noise pop. Together, they make something altogether new. They talk about their new album The Wild Animals in My Life and the naked truth about how they met at Maximum Rock and Roll Headquarters where Scott Moore lived at the time.

Can you guess the Audiograph sound this week? June 13, 2015

Poster designed by R Black

This is Audiograph--the Bay Area’s sonic signature. 

Each week, we’ll play you a sound recorded somewhere in the Bay Area. Your job? Listen to the sound (in the player above), figure out where it was recorded, and what exactly it is, then call us to let us know.

If you think you can identify this Audiograph sound of the week, call 415-264-7106. Also, tell us where to record next. We’ll give away a KALW t-shirt every week to one lucky caller.

Philosophy Talk asks: Should Science and Politics be friends or foes?

The ideal of science is objectivity in the service of advancing knowledge. We tend to assume that to be objective, scientists must keep their politics from influencing their work. But time and time again we see that science, even some of our best science, is awash in political influences. Could politics sometimes have a positive effect on objectivity in science? If so, which kinds of politics might have a positive effect and which might not? What criteria could we use to make the distinction? And does 'objectivity' still have meaning in this context?
