The science podcast Radiolab has released a new program on the subject of color vision. It starts by examining the basic question of whether color exists as a physical fact in the world outside us, or whether it is a creation of our senses.
And it spotlights the mantis shrimp, one of many organisms that see a far wider range of color than we humans do.
The program uses choirs, music, and sound effects to translate visual ideas into colorful audio effects.
