Inside RadioLab with Robert Krulwich

$19-$49

Only about half of Americans have ever heard of podcasts, according to the Pew Research Center, and only 17 percent have ever listened to one, which is a shame, because it's where some of the best storytelling in the world is happening right now. And Radiolab is among the best. On each episode of Radiolab, the hosts go through the process of learning about a compelling topic as the show unfolds, rather than the usual journalistic process of understanding everything about a topic before explaining it. "It's...an odd way to go about the news," Krulwich told me, when he was kind enough to return my call at 11 p.m. on a Saturday to talk about his work for an hour. Krulwich will be bringing this "odd way" to the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts in Tacoma on January 22, with a live show called Inside Radiolab that promises insight into "what makes their work examining big questions in science, philosophy, and the human experience so compelling." Also advertised are interviews with local science specialists and dignitaries, and although I don't know what a local science dignitary is, I cannot wait to find out. MATT BAUME
