“I marvel at Radiolab when I hear it. I feel jealous.” - Ira Glass
What does it mean to “innovate”? How does it feel to make something new in the world? These are questions Jad Abumrad was frequently asked after being awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2011. Abumrad’s lecture is the result of a three-year investigation into the science, philosophy, and the art of uncertainty, which all began with two words: Gut Churn. What use do negative feelings have during the creative process? Do those feelings get in the way, or do they propel us forward? Abumrad is credited with creating a new radio aesthetic with his groundbreaking and two-time Peabody Award-winning weekly radio show and podcast Radiolab. True to his creative storytelling talents, the evening will be multimedia.Artist Website Video Photos
