All In The Mind
All In The Mind is a wonderful Radio program broadcasted weekly on ABC National Radio in Australia. You can listen at the radio show live if you live in that part of the world or simply download the mp3 files and listen at them from your computer. On the website you can also find transcript of the transmission, in case your english is not excellent and you need some sort of subtitles. The program is also reachable through iTunes so that automatic downloading from week to week is possible in an automatic way. Whatever your choice, I do recommend you hook on it since All in The Mind is one of the best science program you’ll ever experience. All in The Mind describes itself as
a program about the mind, brain and behaviour. From dreaming to depression, addiction to artificial intelligence, consciousness to coma, psychoanalysis to psychopathy, free will to forgetting – All in the Mind explores the human condition through the mind’s eye.
Natasha Mitchell is leading the discussions always in a brillant way; she is not just an ordinary science journalist being actually a scientist herself having studied ingeneering and gone through a PhD in engineering. We all know it is not straight forward to talk about science to non scientists but at the same time we are all well aware of how important this is. All in The Mind really does a good job such that contents are not only enjoyable to non experts but to scientists too. All programs focus on one topic, of course: the mistery of the human mind. It may sound reductive but I believe we got enough material to talk about!
