    Explore the hidden world of nematodes. These tiny—less than one millimeter long—organisms are everywhere in the soil, some as plant parasites, others as pest predators. With 57 billion nematodes in the soil for each human standing on it, turns out their importance in genetic research and biomedicine is immense.

    Join us as we delve into this fascinating field and tap into the excitement and humor of nematologists on the cutting edge of discovery.

    TRAILER: Season 8 of Constant Wonder

    TRAILER: Season 8 of Constant Wonder

    Constant Wonder continues its pursuit of awe and wonder in all creation, human or wild, vast or small. Here's a sample of what we've got coming up over the next weeks: We'll meet a pair of married poets, perched at Yale University, whose shared lives have been shaped for two decades now by the looming threat of cancer, but the also the redemptive promises of love and faith. We'll hear from a Japanese-American farmer about how he discovered his "lost" aunt, whose mental disability had led to her becoming a ward of the state, and whose very existence had been hidden from the family for decades.  We'll look in on the cutting edge of nematology and nematodes, tiny, microscopic and ubiquitous worms that have kindled a kind of Wild West of discovery where surprise and delight are a matter of course.  And then we'll speak with a father and son who are rebuilding their shared lives after the father's memory of his identity and past were erased by a traumatic brain injury. All of that and more is coming up in Season 8 of Constant Wonder, kicking of May 8.

In this episode, you'll learn the quirky and litigious history of Luray Caverns' discovery. You'll also hear the world's largest lithophone, aka the "stalacpipe organ." If you enjoy this episode be sure to check out more Curator's Choice adventures at Apple, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. And join us on May 8 for the launch of Constant Wonder Season 8, which gets going with an episode on nematodes, the astounding, ubiquitous and sometimes, you might say, iniquitous microscopic worms beneath your feet.

    S7 E12: Glimmers of Awe: The Fascinating World of Fireflies

    S7 E12: Glimmers of Awe: The Fascinating World of Fireflies

    Facing the loss of her Elkmont cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains—a family treasure for five generations—Lynn Faust began to pay more attention to the fireflies there, the "light show," as the family called it, where thousands of fireflies would light up in unison. When she read that synchronous fireflies did not exist in North America, she knew that scientists were wrong. The creatures were right in her own yard! Realizing just how little was known about these enchanting insects, she set out to observe them, becoming a self-taught firefly expert and unveiling the mysteries of nature's tiny lanterns.

    Guest: Lynn Faust, author of "Fireflies, Glow-worms, and Lightning Bugs: Identification and Natural History of the Fireflies of the Eastern and Central United States and Canada"
