Grammy-, Golden Globe-, Tony- and Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper
discusses how he has emerged as a visionary filmmaker. His first try at
directing a film became the box office smash “A Star Is Born,” which has been
nominated for eight Academy Awards and earned more than $400 million at the
box office. Over a four-year period, Bradley wrote, produced, directed,
starred in and even wrote music for “A Star Is Born.” “The fact that I had an
opportunity to co-write and direct a movie and see it from an idea in my head,
or a feeling--an inspiration in my soul--to showing you this story, are you
kidding me?” Bradley says. “That's, like, ‘Praise God.’” He shares why he
believes he connected on a deeper level with his co-star Lady Gaga and
explains why it was important for him to redefine masculinity, portraying men
as vulnerable. Bradley also talks about why he believes he’s still connected
to his late father, Charles, and how his death forever altered his life.

## What Is Real And Fake?
There are two ways to grow a diamond. You can dig one up from the Earth—a product of billions of years of pressure and heat placed on carbon. Or you can make one in a lab—by applying lots of that same heat and pressure to tiny starter crystals—and get it made much faster.
Put these two objects under a microscope and they look exactly the same. But is the lab-grown diamond real or fake?
The answer lies somewhere in between. The same goes for many other things, like artificial flavors or our favorite nature documentaries that put a sensational spin on an otherwise unvarnished look at wildlife.
Writer and historian Lydia Pyne would call them “genuine fakes” and she explores some of them in her latest book Genuine Fakes: How Phony Things Teach Us About Real Stuff. She joins Ira to talk about the vast gray area between real and fake when it comes to science.
## How Are COVID-19 Numbers Counted?
This week, the death toll attributed to the new coronavirus outbreak passed 2,000 people. And while that number is solid, many of the other numbers involved with this disease, including the total number infected and the degree of transmissibility of the virus, change from day to day. Those shifting numbers are in part due to changes in how countries, such as China, are diagnosing patients and defining who is “infected.”
It can be difficult to know what information deserves attention, especially when information on possible transmission routes and timelines for vaccine development shift constantly. Helen Branswell, senior reporter on infection diseases at STAT , joins Ira for an update on COVID-19 and a conversation about evaluating medical information in the midst of a developing story.
## An Ancient Burial In A Famous Cave
Recently, modern archaeologists returned to Shanidar Cave, located in what is now Kurdistan, and found more Neanderthal remains, including a partial “articulated” skeleton that appears to have been deliberately positioned in a trench near the earlier discoveries.
Emma Pomeroy, a lecturer in the department of archeology at Cambridge University, was the osteologist on the recent archeological team. She says the new find could provide insights into https://www.sciencefriday.com/segments /neanderthal-death/" target="new">how Neanderthals viewed their dead, their sense of self, and more.

Emmy-winning director Jay Roach talks about his new biopic ALL THE
WAY which stars Brian Cranston
(BREAKING BAD) as President Lyndon B. Johnson. Jay Roach is the Emmy &
Golden Globe Award-winning director/producer behind such hits as the AUSTIN
POWERS films, MEET THE PARENTS & its sequel MEET THE FOCKERS, THE CAMPAIGN,
RECOUNT, GAME CHANGE, and last year’s critically acclaimed movie TRUMBO. His
new film ALL THE WAY (premieres
5/21 on HBO) follows L.B.J. during the tumultuous year when he assumed the
White House, passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and staved off a revolt by
Southern delegates in his own party to win a difficult re-election as
On the podcast, Jay discusses his interest in political subject matter like RECOUNT, GAME CHANGE & ALL THE WAY, and how he finds political history rife with opportunities for humor. We talk about Lyndon Johnson’s unconventional negotiating tactics, why L.B.J. took a huge politics risk in fighting for the Civil Rights Act, and how that risk nearly led to his own political demise at 1964 Democratic National Convention. We talk about his complicated relationships with Martin Luther King Jr., Hubert Humphrey, and his wife Lady Bird Johnson, and how he was perhaps the only President who intimidated J. Edgar Hoover. Plus we ponder whether Lyndon Johnson, the ultimate Washington insider, would survive or thrive in today’s anti-establishment political climate.
If you enjoyed my interview with director Jay Roach, I highly recommend that you watch ALL THE WAY. The performance by Bryan Cranston as President Lyndon B. Johnson is remarkable and the film is certain to win a slew of Emmy Awards this year. It premieres this Saturday May 21 on HBO at 8PM Eastern or you can watch it anytime with a subscription to HBO GO or HBO NOW.

and why she suddenly had to cut her European honeymoon short. She talks about
how this milestone has influenced her act, how she got to shoot her latest

About five million years ago, the island of Kauai emerged from the ocean
waves, and a new chain of island habitats was born, right in the middle of the
Pacific. In those Hawaiian islands, birds would have found a multitude of
microclimates, a lack of most predators, and a pretty safe spot to grow and
evolve—which they did, diversifying into a wide range of species, each suited
to a different lifestyle and habitat. But today Hawaii’s diverse birds are
under attack by invasive mongooses, cats, rats and other predators. Some birds
no longer breed in the wild and need the help of humans to reproduce and
survive. Alison Greggor, a post-doctoral research associate at the San Diego
Zoo’s Institute for Conservation Research, joins Ira to talk about efforts to
rehabilitate the nearly extinct Hawaiian
ʻAlalā, and the race to save delicate bird eggs before predators get them

But just like that island chain, with Darwin’s famous finches, the https://www.sciencefriday.com/segments/endless-spiders-and-snails- most-beautiful/" target="new">Hawaiian archipelago is itself a stunning natural lab for adaptation and evolution.

trail of destruction in her wake. Welcome to the story of Eric Preimesberger's
unfortunate premature death, and the people responsible for killing him and
hiding his body. It's also a tale about the perimeter, the friends that were
just outside the fold and due to luck or divine intervention, stayed there.
It's also a story about you, and who you know, how well you know them, and how
