“Gut Churn” with Jad Abumrad

When: Mon., March 21, 7 p.m. 2016

Radiolab founder and host Jad Abumrad blends his interests in music and storytelling in the radio show that now reaches more than one million people per week. According to the Buskirk-Chumley Theatre, “This lecture thread begins with a simple question: What does it mean to “innovate?” How does it feel to make something new in the world? This lecture, on one level, is the personal story of how Jad invented a new aesthetic. On another, it is a clinic in the art of storytelling. On a third and more profound level, the lecture is the result of a three-year investigation into the science, philosophy and art of uncertainty, which all began with the two words that are the title of this talk. Gut churn. What use do negative feelings have during the creative process? Do those feelings get in the way, or do they propel us forward?”
