This weekend's forecast may be a bit soggy but that's not dampening enthusiasm among organizers of a week-long festival of ideas, called HUBweek, which kicks off Saturday.

The festival — for which WBUR is the radio partner — includes a series of events around Greater Boston designed to showcase the city's advancements in science, technology and the arts.

WBUR's Bob Oakes spoke with two of the architects: Brendan Ryan, executive director of HUBweek, and Michael Sandel, political philosopher and professor at Harvard and moderator of HUBweek's kickoff event Sunday.
