Radiolab: Jad Abumrad's Transom Manifesto

Aug 16, 2012

Radiolab host Jad Abumrad shares this manifesto on how the program was born, the "gut churn" of creating a new way of storytelling, and how to accept change. Radiolab is an experiential investigation that explores themes and ideas through a patchwork of people, sounds, and stories.

In each episode, Radiolab experiments with sound and style allowing science to fuse with culture, and information to sound like music. Hosted by Jad Abumrad with co-host Robert Krulwich, Radiolab is designed for listeners who demand skepticism but appreciate wonder; who are curious about the world, but also want to be moved and surprised. Radiolab won a Peabody Award in 2011.
