G: Relative Genius
Albert Einstein asked that when he died, his body be cremated and his ashes be scattered in a secret location. He didnâ€™t want his grave, or his body, becoming a shrine to his genius. When he passed away in the early morning hours of April, 18, 1955, his family knew his wishes. There was only one problem: the pathologist who did the autopsy had different plans. In the third episode of â€œGâ€, Radiolabâ€™s miniseries on intelligence, we go on one of the strangest scavenger hunts for genius the world has ever seen. We follow Einsteinâ€™s stolen brain from that Princeton University autopsy table, to a cider box in Wichita, Kansas, to labs all across the country. And eventually, beyond the brain itself entirely. All the while wondering, where exactly is the genius of a man who changed the way we view the world?Â Â This episode was reported by Rachael Cusick and Pat Walters, and produced by Bethel Habte, Rachael Cusick, and Pat Walters. Music by Alex Overington and Jad Abumrad.Â Special thanks to: Elanor Taylor, Claudia Kalb, Dustin Oâ€™Halloran, Tim Huson, The Einstein Papers Project, and all the physics for (us) dummies Youtube videos that accomplished the near-impossible feat of helping us understand relativity. Radiolabâ€™s â€œGâ€ is supported in part by Science Sandbox, a Simons Foundation initiative dedicated to engaging everyone with the process of science.
