Jad Abumrad is the host and creator of Radiolab. He's been called a "master of the radio craft" for his unique ability to combine cutting edge sound-design, cinematic storytelling and a personal approach to explaining complex topics, from the stochasticity of tumor cells to the mathematics of morality. Jad studied creative writing and music composition at Oberlin College in Ohio. He composes much of the music for Radiolab, and in the past has composed music for film, theater and dance. He's currently co-producing two children.
Radiolab has received multiple Peabody Awards, the highest honor in broadcasting. And in 2011, Jad was named a MacArthur "genius."
