Radio Lab

Sundays at 10 a.m.
  • Hosted by Jad Abumrad and 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 which 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. Radio Lab is produced by WNYC, New York and distributed by National Public Radio.

April 1 – Games
A good game--whether it's a pro football playoff, or a family showdown on the kitchen table--can make you feel, at least for a little while, like your whole life hangs in the balance. This hour of Radiolab, Jad and Robert wonder why we get so invested in something so trivial. What is it about games that make them feel so pivotal?
