Do you marvel at the stories you hear on shows like “This American Life,” “The Moth Radio Hour” or “Radiolab”? Want to discover more stories like them – hidden gems in a vast radio landscape? Then join WBUR for Listen Up: An Evening of Exceptional Audio Stories, curated by the WBUR iLab and hosted by On Point‘s Tom Ashbrook.

You’ll be taken on a journey, transported to other places and times – immersed in sounds, voices and powerful stories. We’ll be listening to a fascinating assortment of audio stories about the act of listening itself. What happens to us, psychologically, when we hear familiar sounds? Why does listening feel so deeply personal? And why aren’t we better at listening to one another? The evening’s program will draw from recently produced radio work and highlight some outstanding older audio storytelling from a wide range of independent producers. 

Listen Up: An Evening of Exceptional Audio Stories will take place in the Barbara Lee Family Foundation Theater, the breathtaking harborside stage at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art, on Thursday, March 27. Doors open at 6:30, and the event runs from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (Please note that latecomers will be seated at the next break in the program, to preserve the integrity of the listening experience.)

Come see what you can hear … when you really listen.
