EPISODE 30: Mad (Cool) Scientists

Nobel laureates totally dig the paranormal!! Ok maybe just a few of them do…but still. 

We talk about Francis Crick’s love of panspermia, Charles Richet’s devotion to extrasensory perception, and Ray Kurzweil’s tech predictions and commitment to immortality. Also we are going on vacation for two weeks, so don’t cry (too much).

As always, keep the emails coming!
