Science
Hundreds of stone chambers, walls, dolmens, petroglyphs, and calendar sites are in the Hudson Valley of NY, and throughout the northeast. Many sites have astronomical alignments to the moon, solstices, and equinoxes. Are they colonial, Native American, or of some other pre-Columbian origins? The program explores the wonder and mysteries that surround these sites.

Science
"Bad Science: A Brief History of Bizarre Misconceptions, Totally Wrong Conclusions, and Incredibly Stupid Theories won the 2011 Silver Medal for Humor, in the Independent Publisher's Awards. This program takes a humorous look at bloodletting, alchemy, quack devices, the worship of meteorites, faked data, secret testing on people, and all kinds of really ridiculous ideas. From the ancient Greeks to the present, the history of science has been fraught with persecution, fraud, and ignorance on a massive scale--but that doesn't mean we can't laugh about it!
$201- $350
