To the Best of Our Knowledge: American Inventio...

In this hour, if we’re going to talk about invention in the US we need to talk with Nathan Myrhvold. He was Microsoft’s first Chief Technology Officer. He holds 17 patents with Microsoft and 117 with his company Intellectual Ventures. But he’s not just a billionaire tech-nerd. He’s also explored the world’s volcanoes. Studied penguin digestion. Found several T Rexes. Built a section of Babbage’s Difference Engine. He’s even the World Barbecue Grand Champion. Anne Strainchamps caught up with Myhrvold to talk about inventing and his six-volume, 2400-page, 52 pound cookbook called Modernist Cuisine. Next, why has America stopped inventing? That’s the provocative title of a book by Darin Gibby. Gibby’s a patent lawyer and points out that Americans invent less than half of what we did a century ago. Half. Why? Are we less creative then we were 100 years ago? Gibby says the problem lies in one place and one place only – The US Patent system. He tells Anne Strainchamps the current system has got to go. Then, in a recent interview with Wired magazine Bill Gates said that if he were a teenager today, he would not be into computing, he’d be hacking biology. He said, “If you want to change the world in some big way, that’s where you start – biological molecules.” Hacking biology, huh? Well, it’s not science fiction anymore. Welcome to the 21st Centrury and the Biopunk Movement where biohacking and kitchen table biotech are the norm. Steve Paulson sat down with journalist Marcus Wohlsen, author of Biopunk, to find out more about these DIY bioengineers. Like, is this legal?After that, don't ask Anna Dietrich if she invented a car that can fly. No one can do that she says. She did, however, invent a plane that can drive. It’s called the Transition. This car/plane or plane/car, whatever you call it, was dreamed up over beers with a bunch of fellow MIT students. The Transition’s recent introduction at the 2012 New York Internati 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Fleming. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/tbon/130301/rt_tbon_130301_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Kill 'Em with Cayenne, a brand new finger-lickin' good mystery from Gail Oust, featuring small-town Georgia spice shop owner Piper Prescott, a smart and spunky amateur sleuth. Spices are flying off the shelves of Spice It Up!, and Piper Prescott couldn't be happier. It's that time of year again-time for the annual Brandywine Creek Barbecue Festival. Soon contestants and BBQ aficionados from all over the Southeast will converge on the town. Many of Brandywine Creek's citizens plan to participate in the week-long festivities and are busily concocting savory rubs and sassy sauces. Among the locals vying for the grand prize are Becca Dapkins and Maybelle Humphries. The women have been arch enemies ever since Buzz Oliver dumped Maybelle after a thirteen-year courtship and started seeing Becca. When Becca's body is found near one of the festival booths, bludgeoned by a brisket, Maybelle becomes one of Chief Wyatt McBride's top suspects. Determined to help clear her friend's name, Piper begins her own investigation, much to McBride's consternation. As the festival draws closer, will Piper and Reba Mae be able to find the real killer and clear Maybelle's name? Will Piper make it to the annual shag contest with Doug Winters, the mild-mannered vet she's been seeing? And, who will win the BBQ cook-off?
