“This show is a conversation between science and mystery,” says Jad Abumrad, host and producer of Radiolab, in a New York Observer feature about the WNYC series. “You’re right at the edge of what the science can tell you. Which to me is as much about, like, magical thinking and weirdness and poetry as the science itself.”
BONUS for Radiolab fans: Abumrad was a featured speaker at 2010 MaxFunCon, organized by Jesse Thorne of PRI’s The Sound of Young America. You can watch a video stream or download audio of his presentation here.
