2020, 12/14 – Scavengers of Beauty by Philippe Sibaud

Why was the mission to the Moon named after the God of the Sun, and not after a Moon Goddess or God?

Was the Apollo landing the ultimate triumph of solar consciousness over the ancient lunar ...

Did a horse, after a three-year absence, know that its previous owner was present by hearing a harmonica being played? Did a horse, who had never acted up, hurt its owner on purpose so she would go to the doctor, where she discovered cancer had returned? Richard D. Rowland seeks the answer to fascinating ...

2020, 11/23 – Why We Act with Prof. Catherine Sanderson

Silence, after all, can perpetuate cruelty. Why We Act draws on the latest developments in psychology and neuroscience to tackle an urgent question: Why do so many of us fail to intervene when we’re needed―and what would it take to make us step up? A ...
