We talk to Dr. John Launer, author of Sex vs. Survival: The Life and Ideas of Sabina Spielrein (Overlook Press, February 2015). Launer wants to bring Spielrein’s contributions to psychoanalysis to light, rather than dwelling on her brief erotic relationship with Carl Jung. We present our latest “People Are Strange”: Washington Irving Bishop, the mentalist who was alive for his own autopsy. And we speak to staff writer Josh Hrala about why we have chins, and what spiders can tell us about drugs. We also get a mole’s-eye view of New York City from producer Bishop Sand, in a story produced as part of the STEM Story Project, distributed by PRX with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
