Event description

Description

Delve into the history and inner workings of the United States Supreme Court during this timely conversation with Jad Abumrad, creator and host of Radiolab's More Perfect.

This spin off series to Abumrad's Peabody Award winning program Radiolab attempts to connect listeners to the decisions made inside the Supreme Court's hallowed halls and explain what those rulings mean for "we the people" who exist far from the bench.

Jad Abumrad

A native of Tennessee, Abumrad studied creative writing and music composition at Oberlin College in Ohio. He has written music for films, as well as reported and produced documentaries for both local and national public radio programs.

Abumrad employs his dual backgrounds as composer and journalist to create what’s been called “a new aesthetic” in broadcast journalism. He orchestrates dialogue, music, interviews and sound effects into compelling documentaries that draw listeners into investigations of otherwise intimidating topics, such as the nature of numbers, the evolution of altruism, or the legal foundation for the war on terror
