Jad Abumrad, the creator and host of public radio’s popular “Radiolab” program, explores what it means to innovate and how it feels to create something new. Abumrad was named a MacArthur Fellow, an honor commonly known as a “genius grant,” in 2011. His “Radiolab” program has been recognized twice—2010 and 2015—with the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award. In 2016, Abumrad premiered “More Perfect,” a spinoff of “Radiolab,” which explores untold stories about the Supreme Court. A Q-and-A follows the talk. Free and open to the public.
