Lucid Planet Radio with Dr. Kelly: Science, Faith and the Pursuit of Wonder: An Interview with futurist and host of Nat Geo's Brain Games, Jason Silva

  03/16/2016  02:00 pm PDT

Dr. Kelly sits down for a spirited chat about the nature of reality with Jason Silva, the host of Nat Geo's Brain Games. We discuss how technology is changing humanity, and ask, is it turning us into Gods? Are we re-inventing evolution? We explore topics related to science, faith, and the idea that we are all in pursuit of wonder. We also get to discuss the new season of Brain Games, which returned in in February 2016 BIGGER and BETTER with six new hour long episodes. This season will air globally on National Geographic Channel in 171 countries and 45languages, with the finale airing on Sunday March 20th at 9pm/8pm CT on the National Geographic Channel.

Wonder junkie Jason Silva (@JasonSilva) takes viewers to the gritty backstreets of New Orleans, traipses deep into the woods of America’s National Park System and conducts experiments in high-tech laboratories at the world’s top institutions — visually illustrating the “wow” behind the “why” to better understand the science. This new iteration of the Emmy®-nominated BRAIN GAMES will be a thought-provoking look at the inner workings of our minds.

In his quest to explore topics like the seven deadly sins, God,survival, hidden senses, the regions of the brain and how your brain ages,Silva teams up with some of the world’s foremost neuroscientists,psychologists, cognitive scientists and specialists. The mind-bending,jaw-dropping and illusion-shattering journey they take through the twists and turns of gray matter makes for a profoundly entertaining and enlightening exploration of the most complex organ in the human body.
