Radiolab’s Jad Abumrad talks ‘Gut Churn’ and the creative process

Radiolab host Jad-Abumrad

Jad Abumrad, MacArthur Fellow and host of the Peabody Award-winning Radiolab podcast, will give a presentation titled “Gut Churn” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 9, at Ardrey Memorial Auditorium.

The multimedia lecture on the creative process is the result of a three-year investigation into the science, philosophy and art of uncertainty. Abumrad will address what it means to innovate, the use of negative feelings in the creative process and whether feelings get in the way or propel the creative process forward.

Tickets are $35 for adults; $30 for NAU faculty and staff; $20 for NAU students with an ID. Tickets can be purchased from the Central Ticket Office by calling (928) 523-5661 or by visiting
