Inquiring Minds

Inquiring Minds is a weekly podcast, hosted by neuroscientist and musician Indre Viskontas, for listeners interested in exploring "what's true, what's left to discover, and why it matters," through conservations with scientists, writers, and other thinkers. The podcast was launched in 2013 through a partnership with Mother Jones magazine and the Climate Desk, although currently the podcast is independently produced. Some examples of topics covered on recent episodes are: an exploration of the fascinating, adorable tardigrade with University of California Davis scientists John and Lois Crowe ("A Matter of Life, Death or Maybe Somewhere in Between"); a conversation with mathematician Jordan Ellenberg about how shapes explain the world ("Getting into Shape"); and an interview with cosmologist Katie Mack about the end of the universe ("Five Ways the Universe Might Die"). Inquiring Minds is a must-listen resource for those interested in keeping up with the latest scientific discoveries and new ways of thinking about our world. Readers can follow the podcast on Twitter (@inquiringshow) for updates and subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or via RSS.
