Opening Keynote Announced!

Creator and co-host of Radiolab and esteemed MacArthur Fellow, Jad Abumrad, will open this year's NAMP Conference with a bang! Abumrad's one-of-a-kind perspective on storytelling and journalism—dubbed a "new aesthetic"—stems from his investigations in the fields of science, philosophy, and the art of uncertainty. Just as his loyal listeners leave every podcast with a renewed sense of creativity and discovery, you'll be sure to gain a similar drive for innovation and deviation from the business-as-usual approach to your work

 "There's something really cool to me about audio precisely in that it lacks pictures. It forces the person on the other end to make up for the absence with you. It's like I'm handing you the paint brush, and you're finishing the painting, and I like that. It's an empathetic act and a warm medium in that sense." - Jad Abumrad
