Magdalena Rutová / Radio Boom!

Literary radioactivity for young artists. Radio BOOM is the imaginative project of artist Magdalena Rutová and comprises an audiobook, a finish-the-drawing doodle book, and thoroughly interactive fun for kids. Radio BOOM is guided by an emancipated eight-year-old woman on an audio recording, who, over the course of a mere nine chapters (and despite a skyrocketing and adventuresome career), comes to the startling conclusion that most of life’s occupations are actually rather unenviable. And it is here that the reader, or rather the listener, comes in, illustrating, finishing or changing the story as desired. Radio BOOM can also serve as inspiration for work with children. Go to for a listen.
