Today’s podcast is about mysteries. Our reality is often filled with more questions than we have answers. Paranormal activity, unsolved cases, unexplained disappearances, alien contact…

The mystery that we’ll be exploring today comes right before Halloween. The question is: What is it that drives people to put themselves in frightening situations? Why do we enjoy being scared?

We’ll talk with Dr. Steve Croft from the SETI Center at UC Berkeley. Steve is a researcher in the Astronomy Department at UC Berkeley.  His primary scientific interests involve studying the growth of supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies, and their relationship with their environments.

We’ll also chat with Brian Hynek, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences and a Research Associate at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, both at the University of Colorado. He’s here to talk with us about the surface of Mars.

Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Jess Goulart, BTR staff writer, podcaster and social media director on her article on the top most mysterious travel destinations.

But first watch our video where we take our questions to the streets of NYC!

Be sure to check out our video interview with Jess Goulart.
