This hour: left-handed creativity and innovation.

On the Other Hand
by Robin Ravlich and Russell Stapleton (Australian Broadcasting Corporation, 2008)
Life is often a raw deal for left-handed folks: they're at a loss for a decent pair of scissors, their hands get inky from having to drag across a wet page of writing. But great art is borne of struggle, and lefty musicians in particular have made a striking impact on music, displaying great virtuosity and creative adaptations to their instruments which were designed in a right thinking, right handed world.

The New Pleasant Revolution

A bike messenger provides alternatives to horrible traffic horns.
