These Are a Few of Jad Abumrad's Favorite Things

Drawing from radio and beyond, Jad Abumrad shared the stories, sounds, people and projects that have most inspired him over the years, and talked about some of the creative challenges he's faced (and embraced) along the way.

Drawing from radio and beyond, Jad Abumrad shared the stories, sounds, people and projects that have most inspired him over the years, and talked about some of the creative challenges he's faced (and embraced) along the way.

Note! Near the top of his talk, Jad showed the first five minutes from Harris Savides' (RIP) film "Birth." We've edited this down to ~30 seconds in this audio file, and here's a short excerpt of the movie clip to give you a taste of what the audience was watching. (The full five minutes continue in much the same manner.)

Also, the session wraps with a spontaneous singalong inspired by this Radiolab story. Memorable, to say the least!
