1. MacArthur Geniuses on NPR

    The latest batch of MacArthur Geniuses were announced today — the 24 recipients include a physicist who preserves audio recordings, a physician who’s helped lower health care costs for an entire city, and a self-taught jazz pianist who combines elements of South Indian classical music with traditional Western jazz.

    Many of the Geniuses have appeared on NPR. Here are a few archival highlights, if you’re looking for background audio this morning.

    I’m going to be looking through the archives — as well as station archives — for more. Happy listening! -Mel
