Radiolab Live: How the Cassette Tape Changed Us
KUOW Presents Radiolab live in Seattle! Radiolab, the award-winning podcast and radio show from WNYC Studios, presents a new live event based on its Mixtape series. For one night only, Senior Producer Simon Adler – with the help of author Tara Isabella Burton and composer Alexander Overington – tells the story of how we ended up so intellectually fragmented and the role the cassette tape played in it. This immersive experience featuring storytelling, live music, and Radiolab’s iconic sound design is an experiment that you become part of. Join us Thursday, February 15 at 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall Seattle’s Great Hall.
More About Radiolab’s Mixtape Series:
Before there was the podcast and the smartphone, there was the cassette tape and the Walkman — two devices that although not considered much today, were revolutionary. They were recordable, rewritable, spliceable, compact, mobile. For the first time they allowed you to move through the world and listen to a voice speaking only to you. The cassette tape brought us together, pulled us apart and forever changed how we say those three simple words, ‘I love you.’ “Radiolab,” the award-winning podcast and radio show from WNYC Studios and senior producer Simon Adler present a live multimedia event based on its Mixtape series exploring self-help, the power of these phrases, the cassette tapes that carried them, and the ideas embedded within.
Radiolab is on a curiosity bender. We ask deep questions and use investigative journalism to get the answers. A given episode might whirl you through science, legal history, and into the home of someone halfway across the world. The show is known for innovative sound design, smashing information into music. It is hosted by Lulu Miller and Latif Nasser.
