On 3 Clips, we make sense of great podcasts, a few little pieces at a time. Few podcasts have had a more profound impact on the medium — or its listeners — than Radiolab, from WNYC Studios. The beautifully produced, always surprising interviews, the important and often misunderstood topics, and the truly innovative music scoring and sound design all combine to make Radiolab one of the most awarded shows in history.
But in my opinion, it’s the hosts that makes this show so great — and the hosts that can teach us the most about being great podcasters ourselves.
On this episode, I dive into the show that inspired me to start podcasting back in 2015. We’ll deconstruct three clips that highlight the hosts’ genius and makes Radiolab one of the most legendary programs on the planet.
