Welcome back to Third Eye Weekly. On this podcast we try and answer the big questions with intimate, personal narratives that give insight into the human experience that others might over-look.

For today’s podcast we’ll connect with Susana Martinez-Conde. A neuroscientist and science writer, she’s also a professor of ophthalmology, neurology, and physiology & pharmacology at the State University of New York, Downstate Medical Center, where she directs the Laboratory of Integrative Neuroscience.

She’s here to talk with us a little bit about the science behind lucid dreaming.

We’ll also talk with David Altheide, who has been tracing the development of this fear since its indoctrination into our country’s media over four decades ago. He’s an Emeritus Regents Professor in the School of Justice and Social Inquiry at Arizona State University who’s written more than ten books on the subject. A recipient of many awards for his groundbreaking insights, Altheide even inspired the Michael Crichton best-seller State of Fear.

He’s here to talk with us about where the media went wrong, and what we can do to make sure we don’t live our lives susceptible to its harmful influences.

Be sure to check us out as we take our questions to the streets!
