Catch us live in a city near you -- tickets are on sale now for Radiolab Live: Apocalyptical, a show about endings, cataclysmic destruction, and surprising survival.
I agree with many other posters. This website is so hard to use!! You need a tab that says "tour dates" and a tab that says "purchase tickets." I want to bring my son to see you live, but it is so hard to figure out where you'll be when. The first thing I saw when I got to your website was a "donate please" page; well, I want to give you money by buying tickets. Please don't make it so hard!
Something doesn't compute here.
Everything dies in two hours? Why? If the death is caused by all the micro glass balls raining back in and cooking, wouldn't it take about one earth rotation--a day--for the fiery rain to cover the entire earth?
Seems like pretty much the entire surface would be literally sterilized, then subject to centuries or millennia of violent climate change. The land surface especially would have been cleaned of anything larger than bacteria....how many eons to recreate multicellular life, then plants, then animals? Wouldn't the atmosphere, with the land and oceans removed of most life, have lost oxygen quickly?
I'm also adding to the frustration of the other comments - that you don't have an easily accessible schedule of your upcoming live RadioLab dates and cities.Frustrating. Why promote listeners coming to the website to buy tickets when the website doesn't provide the information?
I'm trying to buy tickets to the NYC show. Is it sold out?
Scrubbed the website, I even used the search bar. Can't find the link for either the tour schedule or to purchase tickets.
When will Apocaliptical play the NYC area?
Where / How do I buy tickets?
Just saw the Oakland show:Love your broadcasts, love your podcasts...could not wait for the Oakland show...but..... the sound reinforcement was so bad that (from my mid-balcony seat) I could not understand the spoken word (an important part of RL as you know). Any time there was the least bit of audience noise - it turned into an all visual event (even a mild audience titter made the sound unintelligible). : (
Perhaps you were attempting a volume level that would avoid blowing people out of their seats, but all I know is that I missed some, likely, really interesting material.
Hoping you make it into a podcast one day so I can actually hear what I paid to see/hear.
Also hoping your sound company does a better job in other venues (turn it up maybe?)
Hmmmm ... I must have misinterpreted the comment on the radio. I would not consider the language in this show appropriate for pre-teens and the comedian definitely had some adults-only material.
According to a radio interview (KERA - Dallas, TX) with Jad and Robert, it is very family friendly.
just wondering if this is a family friendly performance?
