Using hip-hop to teach Newton's Three Laws of Motion, how "Nova" stays current, and the life and times of Albert Einstein.

"Radio Lab's" Robert Krulwich tells Anne Strainchamps that the secret to good science reporting is to start at the beginning and go slowly so people can understand it. He says he's the leader of the pack when it comes to not getting it, and ends by saying that what he does sometimes gets him "crazy with happiness."
