NPR, National Public Radio, is an American privately and publicly funded non-profit membership media organization. One of its most popular shows is Radiolab, a Peabody Award-winning program that examines big questions in science, philosophy and the human experience through compelling storytelling.
Recently, Radiolab took up the topic of Translation. The Dotsub Community is naturally well informed about matters of translation, so it was very interesting to hear this wide-open, far ranging exploration. There are 8 stories including a blind woman “seeing” the world through technology, a look at the chicken and egg dilemma, and a telephone interpreter on a particularly harrowing call.
Between each story are charming well known American songs sung in various languages. Also, please note that story “Deaf Comedy Jam” is a bit graphic.
