Event date and time
Jad Abumrad, the host and creator of Radiolab, which reaches roughly two million people per month, makes his debut at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex at Cal State LA with his new program, Gut Churn. The evening begins with two simple questions: What does it mean to “innovate?” How does it feel to make something new in the world? On one level, it’s the personal story of how Abumrad invented a new aesthetic. On another, it is a clinic in the art of storytelling. And on a more profound level, the journey 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 presentation: 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?
