I have to admit: I haven’t been keeping up with Radio Lab. I am genuinely ashamed of this, because I feel like Radio Lab is probably the best and most inventive media being produced anywhere right now. It’s just… the episodes… they’re so long!
But I did just listen to this: Radio Lab at the Apple store, explaining how they make the show. Some neat demos and examples of audio before and after “the Radio Lab treatment.”
The Radio Lab secret to storytelling is simple: Make it musical.
