Robert Krulwich, NPR’s Radiolab co-host, will explore complex science in a special presentation on Saturday (June 2) at Reston Community Center’s CenterStage.

During the show, “Saddam Hussein’s Secret Octopus and Other Stories,” Krulwich will play TV and radio stories based on different subjects ranging from an octopus and Saddam Hussein to a bird that invents an anti-gravity device. The performance will begin at 8 p.m.

Krulwich exemplifies compelling storytelling for TV and radio. He is a master weaver of tales who can transform complicated scientific curiosities into fascinating illustrations of discovery that delight, amuse and enlighten his audiences,” wrote RCC’s arts and events director Paul Douglas Michnewicz in a statement.

Krulwich’s show is the final professional touring artist performance of the season.

Tickets are $20 for Restonians and $30 for all others.

    Sounds like a hugely smug Libfest.

    • Why do you bother?

      You say that like it’s a bad thing…

      • Mike M

        You remind me of the Huron warrior who stopped for a moment from his consumption of human flesh in order to scold a disgusted Franciscan onlooker. “To me, father, this is good meat!”

        • Funded by peeps like you

          But for you its funny and thats the main thing.

          Now look spiffy and fork over your $20.

        • Mike M

          It sure will be difficult to win a civil war when your main attack is smug internet posting.

          • Mike M

            Oh my goodness! The fake Mike M is back! Did you miss me fake Mike M? No worries. If there emerges a winner from the civil war, it will not be the leftists. Too many of them are afraid of guns and dependent upon other people for their security.

          • Mike M

            Incredibly cute you believe that owning a gun means you vote Republican.

          • Mike M

            So, you are a fake Mike M and you think THAT is cute? I think your obsession with me is cute. Or maybe a little sick. Meds?

  • Not!

    Great, I’ll stop by after Reston Pride!

    What is he being paid? Small Tax District 5 needs to end!
