Transforming Human Perception
The topic of this episode is “Transforming Human Perception.” The guest is Kara Platoni, who teaches journalism at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, and who has written a book called “We Have the Technology: How Biohackers, Foodies, Physicians, and Scientists are Transforming Human Perception, One Sense at a Time.” Kara discusses topics ranging from new methods of fixing sensory impairments, to people who implant electronic devices in their bodies that communicate directly with the central nervous system to give them totally new types of sensory experiences. We talk about virtual reality and augmented reality, and the nature of perception itself. Martin Wasserman hosts.
