W’re big fans of radiolab on New York’s WNYC.

We’re not alone. Almost 2 million listeners either listen to the show or download the podcasts each week.

Each episode features a 360º analysis of single topic or theme. The stories, interviews and scenarios are then presented as a fast paced montage of tightly spliced interviews, found sounds, dialogue and dramatisation. The approach to editing, shaping and structure really pushes the concept of the radio feature forward – and as a result you’ll sometimes need to listen back or listen again.

Argentine Invasion is a great example of what we mean. From their ‘Shorts’ series – this feature chooses the story of a rather agressive breed of ant and creates an epic tale of quest, battle and conquest.

And it’s just about teeny, tiny ants. Go on, have a listen.
