RadioLab on RADIO IQ

Saturdays at 1:00pm on RADIO IQ.
Jad Abumrad, Robert Krulwich

Each hour we take a big idea, so big that it lives everywhere, hiding in a thousand places under different names, and we chase that idea, going wherever whim takes us.

Along the way, hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich interview, argue, imagine, and discover the hidden connections that make this idea so surprisingly powerful. And the sounds you hear are as new and startling as the ideas we explore.

It's technicolor radio.

Radiolab is produced by WNYC and distributed by NPR.
