Summary

The MacArthur Foundation awards the “Genius Grant” every year to the most compelling scientists, educators and artists in the country. But who are these “geniuses,” really? Host Bob Garfield sits down with fellows, including writer and producer David Simon, radio producer Jad Abumrad, and inventor Amy Smith, to learn what events shaped their life, how they became leaders in their fields, and what they imagine our shared future looks like.

Great show

Great variety of guests make this a fab series to listen to. I didn't know anything about any of the guests so I loved it - every day is a school day ! The host is funny - he laughs with them, at them, calls them out, shows genuine emotions to their stories and generally gets a decent interview from them.

really interesting mix of people...

I've never heard of them, but it was fascinating to learn about what they have done!

Can’t listen to this around the kids because of the language

I can’t listen to this book around my kids because of the language. Every so often they drop the F word and for no real reason. Deleting. Sad because it is something I would have liked
