The BBC Radio 4 Exchanges at the Frontier series has just concluded and it includes interviews with the likes of Kay Redfield Jamison and Human Brain Project leader Henry Markram. They’re all online as podcasts.
All the interviews are done by philosopher A.C. Grayling and for a BBC talking shop are remarkably good fun.
Even the non-cognitive scientists interviewed in the series may be of interest to mind and brain aficionados as one tackles how swarming behaviour emerges and another discusses the link between the economy and happiness.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb is even in there, being his usual grouchy self, and it all makes for a fascinating series.
