Radiolab on WMRA
Saturday at 4pm & Tuesday at 3pm (on WMRA)
- Hosted by Jad Abumrad & Robert Krulwich
Radiolab, created by WNYC, is unlike any other program you have encountered. It is truly "must hear" radio. Each episode is an experiential investigation in sound and style... allowing science to fuse with culture and information to sound like music.
Radiolab believes your ears are a portal to another world. Where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, and human experience. Big questions are investigated, tinkered with, and encouraged to grow. Bring your curiosity, and we'll feed it with possibility.
The son of a scientist and a doctor, Jad Abumrad did most of his growing up in Tennessee, before studying creative writing and music composition at Oberlin College in Ohio. Following graduation, Abumrad wrote music for films, and reported and produced documentaries for a variety of local and national public radio programs, including On the Media, PRI's Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen, Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and WNYC's "24 Hours at the Edge of Ground Zero".
NPR Science Correspondent, Robert Krulwich, joins Jad Abumrad in studio as co-host of Radiolab. Robert Krulwich has been called "the most inventive network reporter in television" by TV Guide.
