Pick of the Week: Radiolab – Finding Emilie

February 19, 2012
Radiolab – Finding Emilie
Podcast release date: January 25, 2011
Hosts: Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich
Time: 21:15

I’ve listened to lots of stories and songs about love the past few weeks (probably due to Valentines Day), and “Finding Emilie” is one of my favorites. “Finding Emily” is the final segment of Radiolab’s “Lost and Found” episode, but I ended up listening to “Finding Emily” again while listening to part one of Third Coast Festival’s Best of the Best 2011 podcast. The episode won the Silver Award for Best Documentary at the 2011 Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition.


“Finding Emilie” tells the story of a woman who’s lost to her boyfriend and family for a period of time after she’s hospitalized as a result of a serious accident, and how they’re able to communicate with her and find her again. At the end of the story on Third Coast Festival’s Best of the Best 2011 (Hour 1) podcast, host Gwen Macsai talks to Emilie, Alan, and Jad Abumrad about what they’re doing now and their thoughts on the show. I’m inspired by the Emilie and Alan’s love for each other and wish them both the best.
