An amazing collection of experts and topics. There's no shying away from the complexities or conundrums of these subjects, from quantum physics to technology's effect on our collective psyche. Unfortunately, the streaming video was not working when I checked out this site. If it was, it definitely would get a 5-star rating. However, the transcripts are worth perusing as well.
