Today’s podcast is about the paradox in how the seemingly superficial, on-the-surface workings of our world have greater impacts than we image.

What are the shadows that lie beneath our superficial worlds and how do aesthetics help give meaning?

We’ll talk 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.

We’ll also chat with Neelesh Patankar, professor and associate chair of engineering at Northwestern Engineering who has helped discover water-proof underwater surfaces.

Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Casey Klofstad, an associate professor of political science at the University of Miami. He studies how society and biology influence human decision-making.

Be sure to watch our video when we take our question of the week out to the streets!

Also you can watch our interview with Casey Klofstad, an associate professor of political science at the University of Miami.
