Quantum Mechanics and Philosophy

This is an excellent talk with David Alpert whose article I had read in Scientific American. For me it required a few re-listens to the podcast!
In general I think Sean Carroll’s podcasts are excellent and I listen to them as soon as they appear.

Okay

Maybe I’m stupid, but I find it very inaccessible. Every episode is incredibly dense with information and sometimes it feel as though I’m sitting through a final year lecture on a course I’ve never heard of.

Very interesting and not prolonged

Sound is too low. I need to listen on the maximum volume on an iPhone and still nit good enough in louder environment.
