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.

Five of the radio transmitters that connect you with MTPR programming across western Montana are now so old that we can’t get parts to repair them. Will you help with an extra contribution for the transmitter work this summer? Make your donation now.

Take the Radio & Tech Survey to help us connect on your terms
(PD)

There have never been so many exciting ways to connect with your favorite sources of news, music, and entertainment. But the pace of technological change and the sheer number of options can be distracting and overwhelming. Whether you're an eager early adopter, or you prefer radio the way you've always listened, your feedback is crucial in helping us cut through the noise and meet you on your terms. Take the media & technology survey to help us understand what these rapid technological changes in the media landscape mean to you.

Have coffee with NPR's David Greene — he'll be hosting Morning Edition live from the Feed Cafe in Bozeman tomorrow. And you are invited to be there — the only catch is it starts at 3:00 a.m. The side benefit is it's totally cool to wear your pajamas.

We just heard Senator Jon Tester will be there too, after 4:00 a.m.
