Host of Public Radioâ€™s RadioLab Jad Abumrad
Presented by Mesa Arts Center as part of the Performing Live Series
While at WNYC, MacArthur fellow Abumrad began tinkering with an idea for a new kind of radio program. The idea evolved into one of public radio’s most popular shows today – RadioLab. The program, which he hosts, explores big questions in science, philosophy and mankind.
The show uses deep-dive journalism, narrative storytelling, dialogue and music to craft compositions of exploration and discovery. RadioLab podcasts are downloaded over 4 million times each month and the program is carried on 437 stations. Spend an evening with him exploring “Gut Churn” and what it’s like navigating feelings during the creative process.
Cost: $24 - $35
