You’ve got to give it a listen if you haven’t already. Immediately, you’ll hear a huge difference from the boring march of words that characterizes every other radio show, ever. On Radio Lab, the words and sonic interjections are fragmented, tiled, cross-cut, layered. There’s just so much more to absorb; it lights your brain up. Radio Lab is DENSE.
This is how all explanatory media should feel. We’re ready for it.
P.S. I don’t want to focus entirely on the meta-method stuff, though, ’cause the ideas and the reporting are also sublime. This is a must-listen.
