Last month, we had our very first (unofficial) artist-in-residence at Radiolab: Henry Reich, the brains behind MinutePhysics. Henry took a story from Craig Childs, the adventure-loving, cliff-scaling explorer from our Things episode, and animated it in trademark Minute Physics style: magic markers, stick figures, and tons of charm.
While he was hanging with us at Radiolab, making videos, Henry decided to try his hand at radio production too. We were working on Things, so we had a few interviews with Regan Choi and Craig on our hard drives (a conversation Jad and Robert had with the two of them in Denver, along with tape our producer Molly Webster recorded Utah). Henry listened through that tape and clued in to a cool story that didn’t make it into our podcast. Here it is—enjoy!
