That question inspired <a href="http://faculty.washington.edu/jcramer/">Dr. John Cramer</a>, physicist at the University of Washington, to try and recreate the sound emanating through space after the Big Bang. Using data and a complex computer program, Dr. Cramer was able to synthesize a 100-second recording representing the first 760,000 years of the evolution of the universe.</p><p><strong>Brian Kimberling: Author Of "Snapper"</strong><br>In 13 connected tales, <a href="http://briankimberling.com/">Brian Kimberling</a> tells the story of Nathan Lochmueller, an aimless college grad who wanders through his early 20s and into the world of songbird research. Kimberling himself spent two years as a professional bird watcher in southern Indiana. He joins us to talk about his debut novel, <em>"</em>Snapper."</p><p><strong>A Future Of Less Work With More Rewards</strong><br>Traditional retirement may not be in the future for many workers, but neither is the notion of a 40-hour work week at unloved jobs.
