The University of North Texas will present the creator of one of public radio’s most compelling programs. Radiolab host Jad Abumrad will talk about how he finds and develops stories as part of the Mary Jo and V. Lane Rawlins Fine Arts Series.

Radiolab, which is heard on 524 stations across the country, has won the Peabody Award and National Academies Communication Award. The show has tackled topics such as autism, language, sleep, space and the mathematics of randomness.

Abumrad has won the MacArthur Genius grant for “engaging audio explorations of scientific and philosophical questions (that) captivate listeners.” He was a film composer and documentary producer before Radiolab officially launched in 2005. He also created the spinoff program More Perfect that covers how the U.S. Supreme Court affects personal lives.
