Radiolab

Radiolab is a show about curiosity, blending the boundaries between science, philosophy, and human experience. Since 2002, Radiolab has been devoted to investigating a strange world. Created and hosted by Jad Abumrad, Radiolab has won Peabody Awards, a National Academies Communication Award “for their investigative use of radio to make science accessible to broad audiences,” and in 2011 Abumrad received the MacArthur Genius grant. The show has an archive of hundreds of episodes and has toured in sold out shows nationwide.
