Radiolab: Mixtape: How The Casette Changed The World

Written by Radiolab

Narrated by Lulu Miller and Latif Nasser

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars



About this audiobook

Before the podcast and the smartphone, there was the cassette tape and the Walkman — two devices that, although not considered much today, were revolutionary. They were recordable, rewritable, spliceable, compact, and mobile. For the first time, they allowed you to move through the world and listen to a voice speaking only to you. These cassette tapes brought us together, pulled us apart, and forever changed how we say those three simple words, ‘I love you.’ In five episodes from around the world, Mixtape explores the impact the cassette had and continues to have today.

Editor's Note

Private, portable realities…

The original Walkman didn’t walk just so the iPhone could run. The invention of the cassette tape let us, for the first time, create our own private, portable realities. This audiobook compilation from the podcast “Radiolab” tells the history of cassettes, with rich soundscapes and fascinating findings.

Radiolab: Mixtape: How The Casette Changed The World


Hosted by Lulu Miller and Latif Nasser, Radiolab was created in 2002 by Jad Abumrad as an exploration of science, philosophy, and ethics using innovative composition and sound design. Radiolab has expanded and evolved to become a radio program, podcast, and digital platform for long-form journalism and storytelling. The show challenges its listeners’ preconceived notions about how the world works. Radiolab provokes, it moves, it delights, and it asks its audience to see the world around them anew. Since its founding nearly two decades ago, Radiolab has won some of the most prestigious awards in journalism, including two George Foster Peabody Awards, Third Coast awards, The Silver Gavel, as well as other accolades. The show has spawned successful spinoff series, like More Perfect, Gonads, The Other Latif, G, Border Trilogy, and Terrestrials. For more information, visit radiolab.org.

    It has nothing to do with cassette tapes or mixtapes. Complete rambling about all these tertiary stories

    A fascinating review of the global impact of the cassette tape. I also loved it because it covered many major historical events that took place during my youth and the youth of my parents. A great listen!
