Radiolab - Quicksand!

Radiolab is amazing.
For many of us, quicksand was once a real fear – it held a vise-grip on our imaginations, from childish sandbox games to grown-up anxieties about venturing into unknown lands. But these days, quicksand can't even scare an 8-year-old. In this short, we try to find out why.
As soon as this episode started all these memories of quicksand came rushing back to me. At one point in my childhood quicksand was one of my biggest fears right along with Freddy Kreuger and the critters from the movie Critters. Up to this point in my life I haven't encountered nearly as much quicksand as my younger self imagined I would. In fact, I haven't even thought about quicksand for years, but thankfully Radiolab was there to remind me.
