Oberlin's alumni mag on Radio Lab

In a profile in the alumni magazine of Oberlin College, Radio Lab hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich discuss the show and its ties to their shared alma mater.

A coda to the article features other Oberlin grads in public radio contemplating the connection between their college and their jobs.
