In spring of 2006, Jad and Robert took the stage at the SoHo Apple Store to talk about the making of Radio Lab. Jad geeks out on the nitty-gritty of digital sound editing, and Robert discusses the editorial questions raised in creating imaginative soundscapes. Film-editor Walter Murch weighs in on the components of storytelling. http://blogs.wnyc.org/radiolab/2007/11/09/making-radio-lab/

"Radiolab dedicates this hour to an exploration of numbers. Those pesky little things on the chalkboard. Where do they come from and what do they really do for us? We bring you stories on how they confuse us, connect us, and reveal secrets about us."
"In this hour of Radiolab, we take several different looks at that moment when we slip from life … to the other side. Is it even a moment? If it is a moment, when is that moment? And what happens afterward? It’s a show of questions that don’t have easy answers. So, in a slight departure from our regular format, we bring you eleven meditations on how, when, and even if we die." From http://www.wnyc.org/shows/radiolab/
"How do you tell the difference between a sea change and a ripple in the water? Could a nonviolent baboon be sign of things to come? Or is it just a flukey outlier from the norm? What about a man in a dress? Or a fox without vicious urges? Is there ever really even a norm? In this hour of Radiolab, we examine three stories that re-frame our sense of normalcy" From http://blogs.wnyc.org/radiolab/2009/10/19/new-normal/
