Radiolab's Jad Abumrad
Marco Antonio

Montana Public Radio is proud to bring Jad Abumrad to Missoula this fall! Get your tickets now! Jad Abumrad is the founder and co-host of the syndicated public radio program Radiolab. The lecture is the result of a three-year investigation into the science, philosophy and art of uncertainty, which all began with the two words that are the title of this talk. "Gut churn." What use do negative feelings have during the creative process? Do those feelings get in the way, or do they propel us forward? Join us at the VIP level ($100 + fees) for a special reception with Jad prior to the show and premium seating for the show. When: Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 8:00 p.m.
