Ever wanted to know how music affects your brain, what quantum mechanics really is, or how black holes work? Do you wonder why you get emotional each time you see a certain movie, or how on earth video games are designed? Then you’ve come to the right place. Each week, Sean Carroll will host conversations with some of the most interesting thinkers in the world. From neuroscientists and engineers to authors and television producers, Sean and his guests talk about the biggest ideas in science, philosophy, culture and much more.

Best science podcast
Covering virtually every interesting topic you can think of, Mindscape is by far the best science podcast I’ve come across. Sean is the perfect host: he speaks fluently and articulately, he knows enough about each topic to ask the right questions (and to sometimes challenge the guest), and most importantly, he is intensely curious about how the world works.
5* highly recommended!
