I came across Radiolab from 5by5’s podcast Back To Work hosted by Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin. In that podcast episode, Merlin and Dan were discussing about this article by Radiolab’s Jad Abumrad, called, “The Terrors & Occasional Virtues of Not Knowing What You’re Doing.” From here, I became a fan of Radiolab.
The first episode I listened to was Crossroads where Jad visited the legendary crossroad in Clarksdale, Mississippi. I’ve listened to radio my whole life. But this is the first time I was so taken in by the story that I couldn’t stop listening to it from beginning to end. The way the story was told and narrated, it was something I haven’t heard before.
