How did The Universe Begin? EP00: Plus Nobel Prizes & the Imposter Syndrome, with Dr. Brian Keating Part 2

This is Part 2 of the first episode on theories on how did the universe began with the podcast friend, Brian Keating! Before we started the podcast, Brian was telling me about this guy who won The Nobel Prize and then he had the imposter syndrome and I was surprised! So I was wondering, how did someone who won the Nobel Prize have the imposter syndrome, and how did he get over it.

After that, we dived into theories on how did the universe begin. From string theories to Multi-Verse and all! Enjoy! If you like this episode, make sure to tweet @jaltucher to let me know what do you think about this series!
