Online chat with Radio Lab host Jad Abrumad

SHARE Online chat with Radio Lab host Jad Abrumad

The new season of Radio Lab debuts on Chicago Public Radio THIS Sunday at 6p. Its like Christmas for me when Radio Lab releases a new season. I count down the days, use it as an excuse to eat a ton of carbs, wear my big comfy holiday sweater and curl up on the couch with a cup of coco to listen.


I think the hosts Jad Abrumad and Robert Krulwich are such an interesting match that I often wonder what goes on in editorial meetings behind closed doors. How do they pick their topics? How long does it take to produce one episode? When arguing, who wins? Who brings the donuts? We can find out some answers when Jad hosts an online chat tomorrow, November 14th at 3pm. If you want some warm up Radio Lab, how about their “War of the Worlds” episode which they recently recreated here in the flesh at The Victory Gardens Biograph Theatre.
