Distinguished Lecture with Jad Abumrad

April 25, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


“The Miracle of Indoor Plumbing”

On April 25, 2018, Drexel University College of Arts and Sciences will proudly welcome its 2018 Distinguished Lecturer, Jad Abumrad, MacArthur Fellow and co-host of the Peabody Award-winning “Radiolab” podcast. Abumrad’s lecture, titled “The Miracle of Indoor Plumbing,” will be what he calls “a hypertextual lecture with original music.”

After 15 years of making “Radiolab” and, more recently, “More Perfect,” he found himself standing on a street corner, staring down at a manhole cover and thinking: “Indoor plumbing! Of course!”

Join Abumrad as he deconstructs the process of finding and developing stories and creating new, original work. He’ll unearth the hidden ingredients key to the stories that inspire, change and connect us all.
