Thursday on Lake Effect: Hidden Brain, 'Chasing Bubbles,' 'All the Great Books (Abridged)'

Thursday on Lake Effect:

We have a conversation with NPR's Shankar Vedantam, whose Hidden Brain podcast becomes a weekly radio show this weekend. Then, a movie tells the unique story of an Indiana farm boy turned Chicago day trader, turned round-the-world sailor. Plus, we'll hear about InTandem Theatre's madcap, but not disrespectful, mash-up of some of the greatest works of literature.


  • Shankar Vedantam, Hidden Brain
  • Ross Gerber, Topher Cochrane & Chris Thompson; Chasing Bubbles
  • Chris Flieller, Ryan Schabach, Chriss Goode, Doug Jarecki; InTandem Theatre
  • Martyn Joseph, singer-songwriter
