When public radio producer Jad Abumrad met journalist Robert Krulwich back in the early 2000s, they cooked up an ambitious project. They wanted to create a radio show that explained science to non-scientists. And they wanted to use sound to help them do it. The result was RadioLab — first a radio show on WNYC and now a popular podcast.  

WFYI Arts and Culture reporter Jill Ditmire recently caught up with Abumrad, who describes the show as a character-driven, curiosity-fueled joy ride through the landscape of a thought or idea.

Abumrad  will be speaking in Indianapolis in September as part of WFYI's Listen Up series.
