SERIAL KILLER: The Alphabet Murders Part 2
Dozens of commuters see a young girl fleeing a car on the side of the expressway in Rochester, NY, but no one pulls over to help. The community is devastated when her body is discovered just days later, but it’s assumed to be a tragic but isolated incident. But when more young girls go missing…only to have their bodies discovered within days in a similar manner…the community must ask: is a serial killer stalking the streets of Rochester? And is he choosing his victims based on a seemingly random characteristic? * If you have any information relating to any of these cases, please contact the New York State Police Department at (585) 398-4100, or email them at nysvicap@troopers.ny.gov. * Check out _Alphabet Killer: The True Story of the Double Initial Murders__ _by Cheri Farnsworth. * Check out _Nightmare in Rochester: The Double Initial Murders_ by Michael Benson.

Your Questions on Open Conventions, a Gaza Schism and Biden’s Chances
We received thousands of questions in response to last week’s audio essay arguing that Democrats should consider choosing a candidate at August’s D.N.C. convention. Among them: Is there any chance Joe Biden would actually step down? Would an open convention be undemocratic? Is there another candidate who can bridge the progressive and moderate divide in the party? Doesn’t polling show other candidates losing to Donald Trump by even larger margins? Would a convention process leave Democrats enough time to mount a real general election campaign? In this conversation, I’m joined by our senior editor Claire Gordon to answer these questions and many more. Mentioned: “Democrats Have a Better Option Than Biden” by Ezra Klein “Here’s How an Open Democratic Convention Would Work” with Elaine Kamarck on The Ezra Klein Show Thoughts? Guest suggestions?

G: The World's Smartest Animal
This episode begins with a rant. This rant, in particular, comes from Dan Engber - a science writer who loves animals but despises animal intelligence research. Dan told us that so much of the way we study animals involves tests that we think show a human is smart ... not the animals we intend to study. Dan’s rant got us thinking: What is the smartest animal in the world? And if we threw out our human intelligence rubric, is there a fair way to figure it out? Obviously, there is. And it’s a live game show, judged by Jad, Robert … and a dog. The last episode of G, our series on intelligence, was recorded as a live show back in May 2019 at the Greene Space in New York City and now we’re sharing that game show with you, again. Two science writers, Dan Engber and Laurel Braitman, and two comedians, Tracy Clayton and Jordan Mendoza, compete against one another to find the world’s smartest animal. They treated us to a series of funny, delightful stories about unexpectedly smart animals and helped us shift the way we think about intelligence across all the animals - including us. _Special thanks to Bill Berloni and Macy (the dog) and everyone at The Greene Space._ EPISODE CITATIONS: Podcasts: If you want to listen to more of the RADIOLAB G SERIES, CLICK HERE (https://radiolab.org/series/radiolab-presents-g).
