Each week we bring you a new, in-depth exploration of the space where science and society collide. We’re committed to the idea that making an effort to understand the world around you though science and critical thinking can benefit everyone—and lead to better decisions. We want to find out what’s true, what’s left to discover, and why it all matters.
 
Donna Karlin and Steve Harper have spent over 15 years percolating about life, business, and the myriad of perspectives we have about ourselves within it all and now we’re inviting you to listen in. Inquiring Minds is about life and the conversations we have to navigate it —Conversations to help us learn, evolve and challenge how we think about ourselves and others so we make better, more informed choices.
