Cognitive scientist Justin Gregg joins Robin Ince for a hilarious and demystifying look at humans, animals, and the meaning of life itself.
What if human intelligence is more of a liability than a gift? According to Justin Gregg, animal cognition expert and the author of If Nietzsche Were a Narwhal, there’s an evolutionary reason why human intelligence isn’t more prevalent in the animal kingdom. Simply put, non-human animals don’t need it to be successful. In conversation with comedian and science communicator Robin Ince, Justin highlights features seemingly unique to humans and compares them to our animal brethren. The picture he paints will forever change how you look at life on earth.
