On November 13th, Jad and Robert will be on stage in Washington, DC for a live edition of Radiolab devoted to the notion of symmetry.

Philosophers in Ancient Greece and modern day particle physicists alike have pondered whether we live in a world that's fundamentally symmetric...or deeply asymmetric. In a night of fascinating voices, engaging images, and live musical performances, Jad and Robert will reflect on how symmetry tugs on our hearts and guides our lives--from sub-atomic molecular behaviors, to how your hair part might affect your likeability.

this photo is annoying in that it cuts off the feet of the bird, which are highly expressive features.

Thank you, Robert, Jad, and crew, for an amazing evening here in D.C. My 10 year-old son was enthralled, along with my husband and me. Can't wait until "Symmetry" is broadcast!

Anyone still wanting tickets should look on craigslist (DC area). There are a few for sale.

Well, it's a radio show, right? Just done before a live audience, but they will be, you know, recording it, editing it, tying a bow on top of it and airing it, right?

It would be nice if it were live on radio/Internet, but that seems unlikely.

It would, however, be symmetrical. Just as much RadioLab given off inside the theatre as outside.

Ahh man I can't believe the tickets went that fast? Does anyone know where to buy them from other people or if more will be made available?

Definitely interested in tickets if any become available. Maybe those who can't go can post them here for sale?

The show is sold out, please tape it and put it up online in a way that those who can not attend are still able to enjoy it.

I can't wait to hear your show!
In Spring I collaborated with my Department and some high-school students to the planning and installation of an exhibit about symmetry in Earth sciences (mineralogy and paleontology), so I'm really looking forward to hear new things about symmetry in science!

You are indeed a lab of what it is to be human. Cannot wait to hear show. Starting with ourselves: our teleceptors and limbs appear symmetrical. Our internal organs are not. Even one side of our lungs has one more lobe than the other. We appear symmetrical on the outside, but inside we are not. And functionally, due to our history and habits we do not use our limbs and teleceptors symmetrically. Yet we have a drive for symmetry and lack of appreciation of our own asymmetries.
