About This Show
Each episode we tackle a topic that influences the way we view ourselves and the world. Some of the topics we explore: learning, sound, death, paradoxes, causation, and the origin of life. We hear from a variety of people: from scientists and philosophers to everyday people who are impacted by the topic.
