Distillations #88 – A Sense of Scent

A show inspired by this quote from Diane Ackerman’s Natural History of the Senses:

Smells spur memories, but they also rouse our dozy sense, pamper and indulge us, help define our self-image, stir the cauldron of our seductiveness…

Segments on the physiology of the schnoz,  a new technology that attempts to mimic a canine’s incredible sniffer, and a feature from super-talented newbie producer Douglas Smith about a french perfumer, an iphone app, and how music inspires scent.
