Dispensing with sarcasm here because THIS MIGHT BE ONE OF THE COOLEST THINGS WE’VE EVER POSTED: On Tuesday, two awesome forces will combine in an explosion of radicalness when WNYC’s all-things-brilliant show Radiolab sets up a shop at Brooklyn Brewery, and they’re looking for volunteers to help! In exchange for some manual labor, hosts Robert Krulwich (swoon, nerds) and MacArthur Genius Grant winning Jad Abumrad (swoon, ladies) will buy you a beer. There’s only room for about 100 volunteers, so RSVP right now by emailing email@example.com with “RSVP” in the subject line. We called the Brewery to get the details, and they told us Radiolab isn’t doing a show there, but is just using the space to set up some lights and equipment for their upcoming roadshow. So you don’t get to see Radiolab in action, but you do get to mingle with a guy who won a genius grant, which, let’s be honest, is like 10 master’s degrees combined.

Those who warned us that no presidential election could lead to changes overnight woke up the next morning (and every morning after) to visions of a new and surreal reality, as though we had passed […]
