Have you ever thought about a what a kiss is? I mean, really, really thought about kissing? Last week Desiree spoke with Sheril Kirshenbaum about her new book The Science Of Kissing. It’s a pretty fascinating interview, and the book is now my “to read” book for 2011. And Greg Laden returned to discuss if there are there really universal traits that appear across all human cultures. A great show.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s show. It features science writer Jessica Wapner who will examine intersection between ethics, economics, and drug development, and what it means for the future of pharmaceutical research. And there’s a discussion with author, comedian and futurist Mark Stevenson, to discuss his new book, An Optimist’s Tour Of The Future, about the cutting edge science that’s going to sustain and entertain the human species.
Until next week!
