I guess I don’t listen to enough radio, because I haven’t heard Radiolab in a year or so, but they always fill me with joy!


Based on episodes I’ve heard over the years, I would guess he gets the ideas by pulling them out of a particular orifice.


Radiolab did a podcast on these methods recently as well. Nasser is very enthusiastic about what he does. His motivation to share his tricks of the trade? To get help telling all the millions of awesome stories out there.
