About This Episode
For our third Bell House show in front of a live audience, recorded on February 17, 2012, we peer into the vast and mysterious cosmos of consciousness. Professor of psychiatry Heather Berlin, science blogger Cara Santa Maria, and comedians Eugene Mirman and Wyatt Cenac speculate on head-scratchers such as what makes us human, whether we have free will, and how this tiny ball of meat we call the human brain can contemplate infinite numbers and the unbounded expanse of the universe.
