The Mind Science Foundation welcomes Jad Abumrad, MacArthur Fellow and host of the award-winning Radiolab, to San Antonio on Sunday, Sept. 18. Abumrad will present a multi-level lecture in Trinity University’s Laurie Auditorium that’s designed to stimulate thought and discussion on what it means to be creative, to innovate and to dive into the art, science and philosophy of uncertainty.
Attendees will hear the personal story of how Abumrad created a new aesthetic in the world of journalism, and they will also enjoy a clinic in the art of storytelling. The presentation will include audio clips, still images, video and live sound manipulation.
Jad Abumrad is the host and creator of Radiolab, a public radio program and podcast that is currently second in popularity to “This American Life.” Radiolab has evolved into an open-ended radio laboratory where dialogue, music, interviews and sound effects merge into informational and entertaining documentaries. Abumrad also works as a composer and re-mixer.
