Okay, the primary is over, time for a deep breath and a chance to switch gears. We're going to take a break from the politics and the news, actually, to spend the hour with two of the greatest minds in radio: Oberlin alums Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich join us to talk about the art of Radio Lab. It's a program they say is closer to a musical score than a piece of journalism, and it airs Friday nights at 9 on 90.3. Audio art meets science on the Sound of Ideas. Thursday morning at 9 on 90.3.


Arts and Culture, Community/Human Interest, Technology


Jad Abumrad, host and producer, Radio Lab, WNYC
Robert Krulwich, co-host, Radio Lab, and science correspondent, NPR
