Ratio Podcast is a program for intellectually curious people. We’re having informal conversations, connected with or inspired by science. Bear in mind, we’re not experts on basically anything – but thankfully most of our guests are. Beyond the podcast, Ratio is a series of events with a focus on science and critical thinking. Our goal is to basically make science sexy again. Episodes are done both in Bulgarian and English, depending on the guest we’re having for the show.

Listen to the Ratio Podcast by RSS, find us on iTunes, Stitcher, and SoundCloud.

Our guest for this episode is Greg Dunn, a neuroscientist turned artist. Together with his co-conspirator, the physicist Brian Edward, they created what can be described as probably the most dynamic artistic representation of our brain. Before listening to this, just go online and check out the project Self-Reflected.

Beyond his sciencey and artistic qualities, Greg is also a fantastic speaker – he did a talk with us in August, he did it in Bulgarian no less. He visits Bulgaria with his wife who’s from around here and in the past few years mastered some excellent Bulgarian. Thankfully, we decided to keep this one in English.
