About the Show
Radiolab is on a curiosity bender. We ask deep questions and use investigative journalism to get the answers. A given episode might whirl you through science, legal history, and into the home of someone halfway across the world. The show is known for innovative sound design, smashing information into music. It is hosted by Lulu Miller and Latif Nasser.
Created in 2002 by host Jad Abumrad, Radiolab began as an exploration of science, philosophy, and ethics using innovative composition and sound design. Radiolab has expanded and evolved to become a platform for long-form journalism and storytelling. The show challenges its listeners’ preconceived notions about how the world works. Radiolab provokes, it moves, it delights, and it asks its audience to see the world around them anew.
Radiolab has won some of the most prestigious awards in journalism, including two George Foster Peabody Awards, Third Coast awards, The Silver Gavel, as well as other accolades. In 2011 Abumrad received the MacArthur Genius grant. The show has spawned successful spinoff series, like More Perfect, Gonads, The Other Latif, G, Border Trilogy, and Radiolab for Kids.
