Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich in Person

Since 2005, WNYC’s Radiolab has been piquing the childlike wonder in adults with its radio show that explores the esoteric and essential of our universe. With its unique reporting style and inventive sound designs, Radiolab epitomizes the new kinds of documentary storytelling the Mead Festival is dedicated to showcasing. Join hosts Jad Abumrad (recently named a MacArthur Fellow) and Robert Krulwich in AMNH’s Hayden Planetarium for an immersive Radiolab “listening party” charting humanity’s paradoxical relationship with space exploration, from wide-eyed romanticism to cynical fear. While Radiolab conjures expert aural wonders, the Zeiss Mark IX projector conjures brilliant starscapes under in the Hayden Dome. The show includes interviews with Ann Druyan, widow of Carl Sagan, Brian Greene, host of NOVA’s The Elegant Universe, and Hayden Planetarium  Director Neil deGrasse Tyson. Abumrad and Krulwich will be on-hand to share behind-the-scenes anecdotes about their program and field questions from the audience.

Part of the series Dreams of Outer Space in conjunction with Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration
