Radiolab co-host Jad Abumrad visited Iowa City on April 4, 2015 as a guest of Mission Creek Festival. I had just recently been introduced to NPR’s radio show via podcast and was quickly impressed with Abumrad and Robert Krulwich’s professionalism, production, and discussion of topics in a respectful fashion. I value the duo’s lofty standards of research and engaging interviews. Each episode encourages me to deliberate and conduct further research on scientific and philosophical subjects. Thus, I was excited for the opportunity to support Abumrad’s appearance at the Englert Theatre. I documented the audio that evening and offer, for historical record, Abumrad’s presentation on the feeling of “gut churn” and its role in creativity and ambition.
