A two-time Peabody Award-winner, Radiolab is an investigation told through sounds and stories, and centered around one big idea.

Hosted by Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, the show is designed for listeners who demand skepticism, but appreciate wonder.

I used to enjoy RadioLab. The series on the Mexican Border was outstanding. But alas the presenters and their egos have taken the spotlight over the content. Its become more like a performance than an uncovering of a truth. The science has become more flimsy too and less rigorous eg. the episode on memory in which the subject is reduced to simple recall. What about musical or visual or sensual memory? Disappointing.

Not sure how Trump's travel ban on non US citizens is the same as American Japanese concentration camps. Are you saying we should not have restricted German national Nazis from coming to the US during WWII?

i love the show, but these social justice type topics are getting old. I got nothing against the topics themselves, civil rights are important and all, but I started listening to this show because it would spark my curiosity. there used to be more science, and psychology topics. it's just sad to me because this show used to make me feel like a kid discovering the world again while I listened on long road trips, nobody does the science stuff like you guys. I think alot of people would agree when I say that many of us came here because you guys made absolutely INCREDIBLE science episodes, like hall of fame status. this gender studies and feminism stuff just doesn't blow my mind. I'm just hearing the same stuff I hear everywhere, and thus I have to look elsewhere for intellectually enriching, and original content. radiolab is no longer either of those ):

Luke Alley I agree with most of this. I don't know if I am young in terms of the podcasting demographic, but I feel like there may be some preaching to the choir happening when it comes to these topics. Maybe a branch off channel would be one way to carry the torch-- not neglecting these issues, but still keeping the integrity of the original program's concept?

Please do not make playing things such as The Beauty Puzzle, which is ridiculous pseudoscience, a habit. Random selection from small populations already have credible explanations.

This is my favourite episode of the year so far.. The suspense, the story, and the ending! I was just on the edge throughout! Loved it! Listening it from Kenya where we have no idea about ice hockey and its politics.
