Radio Lab’s Audio-Visual Smackdown

Live Event | Radio

Wednesday May 6 2009 • 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Ira Glass

Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich


In TV’s corner, ABC’s Robert Krulwich will hit hard with stunning video images that may have his opponent up against the ropes. But audio-savant Jad Abumrad won’t go down without a fight as he champions the power of sound with shining examples from radio’s longer, and arguably more innovative, history. Special guests from the worlds of film and music will tag team in with some examples of the things that the ears can do that the eyes only dream of (and vice versa), illustrating just how complicated the relationship between the two senses can be.
