Jad and Robert: The Early Years

Ever wonder how Jad and Robert met?

Well it all began with an everyday encounter where they discovered they both went to the same small liberal arts college in Ohio. For this week's podcast, the guys go on stage at Oberlin College to tell the tale of their meeting and how they started tinkering around with tape to come up with the Radiolab you know today.

Vintage Radiolab alert! You'll hear the very first piece Jad and Robert made together. It's an audio-experiment called 'Flag Day' that they submitted to This American Life. TAL's Ira Glass and Julie Snyder phone in to share what they thought of it.
