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.
