Streamed live on 9 August 2017.

Curiosity is something we value here at “Read Science”, and today we talked about it with Mario Livio, author of Why? What Makes Us Curious. We heard stories about Richard Feynman, learned about theories of curiosity, what it is and how it happens in the brain, talked about exciting curiosity in science communication, and the role curiosity has in overcoming fear of the unknown. We also guarantee that no cats were harmed in the making of this episode.
