Critters be damned!

Is it the mind, or the brain, which came first? Are we scientists or philosophers? Does it even matter?

Excellent podcast

This podcast does a great job at including enough detail to allow for an understanding not only of the subject under discussion but of the larger context of the research. Though fluff pieces on science have their place it was sad to see some negative reviews of this podcast by people who apparently expected such fluff pieces here when, in my view, this podcast (and magazine) has a completely different, and welcome, aim.
