Radiolab on Sound of Young America

Friday, February 15, 2008 - 04:44 PM

Just wanted to let you know: Robert and I were interviewed for The Sound of Young America, a great public radio show hosted by Jesse Thorne. He's got a good radio voice, that one. And he uses that radio voice to ask insightful radio questions.

Here's the link. Let us know what you think!

This is my first blog post. Ever.

More will follow!

I actually learned about Radio Lab when I thought they were going to give 'The Sound of Young America' on WNYC. Now I'm a huge fan of of the show. Best of luck.

why isn't podcast available for the War of the World show? Come on post it. I don't listen to you guys on "radio" I only listen to you guys on line and I really wanted to listen to that show. Please post it.

Oh wonderful!! this is my all time favorite show on NPR! I'm so glad you have the podcasts as well. Now I can catch up on all the missed episodes. When I listen to your shows i find myself paused in whatever I am doing, entranced in the topic of discussion...even forgeting what I was going to do next. I haven't been captivated like that in a long time. I hope this show stays on forever.

Nice to listen to you on the TSOYA podcast this morning. I can't wait for the new season of Radiolab .. I have wrung the archives dry (thanks to my 2 hour commute) so I am ready ready more than ready! (PS I can't tell the Ann Druyan/Carl Sagan/golden record story to others without welling up, as I am that big of a goofball.) Thank you! We'll be here in 10 years, so please keep creating!

I agree with your and Robert's hunch about this new listening niche that Radio Lab happily occupies. I listen exclusively to your podcasts, and I find your shows so dense and entertaining that I listen to most shows many times. I love this format, and I love that your show is developing it!

Introduced to your show through this interview. Fantastic have one new podcast subscriber. Always good to hear work that is crafted with such love and attention.

Your comment about choosing when to listen struck home, because even though I discovered your show by flipping channels on the radio, I now listen exclusively on my iPod. I've tried knitting while listening, but after ruining several patterns through inatention, I've come to accept that the best place to listen is while driving long stretches of open highway. Thankfully I do that fairly often.
Your efforts are truly appreciated; it's a great show.

Dendritic Arbors (or, Connecting Synapses In NYC.) The phrase 'Dendritic Arbors' stuck in my head from a Radio Lab show. At my Neurologist's office, I will show my artwork with that name. I mentioned 'Dendritic Arbor' to my dogwalker, who quickly provided info on the topic. To my surprise, she teaches Neurology to Med Students.

Loving the addition of the blog to the site. Keep the great content coming to satisfy us between episodes and seasons! Oye that wait is unbearable.

I believe that is the remains of a most wonderful plate of buckwheat pancakes. That's the diner near the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul. Jad, Robert and the rest of our team ate there the day before our live show in October at the Fitzgerald Theater. I believe that's the diner where the dead eat in Robert Altman's film "Prairie Home Companion." And I bet even the dead would devour those buckwheat pancakes with glee.
