Jad Abumrad, Radiolab

Radiolab has been called the most innovative show on radio by This American Life’s Ira Glass and very many listeners agree. Each week co-hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich choose a big topic of a scientific and philosophical nature and in a unique documentary style explore it through interviews, experiments and discussion. Jad, a music composer, adds a distinctive audio production style with sound illustrations and unique editing techniques.

We are honored to interview Jad Abumrad about the coming season of Radiolab, some behind the scenes of the shows production, the most difficult topics they have ever tackled and how pop culture portrays science and scientists today!

Imagine a printer that instead of printing with ink on paper deposits droplets of plastic, layer by layer, gradually building up a 3d object of any shape complete with circuit boards, batteries and displays! Now stop imaging, because this printer already exists, it can already now print flashlights and watchbands, and will very soon allow you to print your own customized cell phone or Ipod.

Phorecast has the honor of interviewing Evan Malone from Cornell University, one of the brains behind the Fab@home personal desktop Fabber project.

The Fabber is essentially a revolutionary desktop printer that allows you to build three dimensional objects from plastic and other materials. Together with co-creator Hod Lipson, Evan has printed flashlights, watchbands, squirt bottles, batteries, artificial muscles, even fancy chocolates. On their website Fab@home they teach people how to build their own fabbers and encourage them improve the design and share their blueprints online.
