QUIRKS & QUARKS is CBC's award-winning weekly radio science program. It is also heard around the world via its weekly podcast.  For 38 years, QUIRKS & QUARKS has brought its listeners to the cutting edge of scientific inquiry. Every week, the program presents the people behind the latest discoveries in the physical and natural sciences - from the smallest sub-atomic particle to the largest objects in the sky and everything in between. The program also examines the political, social, environmental and ethical implications of new developments in science and technology. QUIRKS & QUARKS is a program for people fascinated by the world above, below and around them. And you don't need a PhD to enjoy it.
