Please forgive me if this has already been commented on and delete this post.  I did a bit of searching and didn't find it.  I'm pretty sure I read a thread like this a couple months ago, sooo....

Thanks for the welcome. 

Quirks and Quarks is a mainstream science show.  But, they used to do the more 'out there' stuff.  I have a program on cassette tape somewhere where they discussed the Betty Hill 'Star Map' seriously.

Yeeah that's a stretch - Carl Sagan pretty much nullified the star map in Cosmos as I remember.

Today on the CBC show "The Current"
A Special Science Edition of The Current with Astronaut Chris Hadfield

it's 1:30 long approx.  Some of it is more interesting than other parts.

When John Batchelor has science guests it's very good.

Today (or tomorrow, not sure) on The Current (a CBC radio show that is mostly non science)

Wednesday, September 24th

Coming up Wednesday ... a special documentary, Allison's Brain. In 2012, Allison Woyiwada discovered she had a life-threatening brain aneurysm. It had to be operated on. The ensuing brain surgery nearly killed her... but it is her remarkable recovery through music therapy which has neuroscientists discussing - and debating - her case.

I believe I heard an ad for it that said it was coming up on tuesday.

Anyway, this is the show supposedly airing tuesday:

Coming up Tuesday .... Back in the 1960s, Stanford psychologist Walter Michel came up with the famous "marshmallow test." To test self-control in preschoolers, researchers would leave the children alone in room with a marshmallow. The kids were told they could have two marshmallows if they didn't eat the first one... all they had to do was wait a few minutes. Decades later, the kids who were able to wait for the bigger reward tended to fare better in life. More than 40 years after the marshmallow test was born, Walter Michel shares his thoughts on the importance of self-control... and how it can be learned.
