From first to worst
Radiolab used to be my favorite. Jad and Robert did interesting shows talking to knowledgeable people about weird, thought-provoking stuff, and used sound creatively to create an aural translation of visual materials. That was the show’s genius masterstroke, typified by an episode discussing color vision that was aurally symbolized by a choir. Now Robert is retired and gone, Jad is trying his best to hand off the show, and we listeners are left to nasally, whiny, high-piched ugly radio voices popping the treble cones in my wireless speakers talking to boring people in their apartments about boring and sad things, with little to no scoring, let alone creative soundscapes that spark new perspectives. Just another wonderful thing in the world that has been 1984ed into total crap no one can care about.
