Getting Lost with Radiolab

A Conversation with Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich


Lost is okay. Lost is a place. But that takes time to understand." -Robert Krulwich

Curiosity. Obsessions. Serial. Hermaphroditic snails. The “shape” of a radio show. When you sit down with Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, creators and cohosts of the innovative, hugely popular podcast Radiolab, you never know exactly where the conversation will lead.

As millions of listeners know, Abumrad and Krulwich regularly blur the boundaries between storytelling, science, and philosophy in their sound-rich show, which airs on more than 450 NPR stations around the country. Claire Navarro and Rebecca King were thrilled to meet and interview both Abumrad and Krulwich earlier this year, when the duo visited Washington University in St. Louis as the culmination of a weeklong celebration of curiosity and the liberal arts.
