You’ll need two hours and twenty five minutes to make it though this podcast, but it will be well worth your time. Don’t be fooled by the seven second heavy metal introduction. The podcast host is excellent in shaping the discussion, and Dr. Cook does his usual masterful job in waxing poetic about vision through his streams of consciousness. While the video will be most enlightening to the general public, I suspect that nearly anyone listening to it will find it informative if not entertaining.
