Weekly discussions on topics raised in recent episodes of Radio National's "All In The Mind" broadcast/podcast (usual with the option to read the transcripts rather than listen). Occasionally we choose a BBC or independent USAmerican radio show instead. We also have monthly joint-meetup picnics where multimedia arts are examined from a psychological/sociological/philosophical perspective.

We are open to hypothesis and sharing how our experiences compare however there is respect for facts and science.

The following is from the RN website....

We humans are such complex beasts. Why is it that we can be so wonderful and yet so awful, eccentric and prosaic, enigmatic and obvious, witty and dull, and all of these at once?

All in the Mind... is Radio National's weekly foray into all things mental – a program about the mind, brain and behaviour. From dreaming to depression, addiction to artificial intelligence, consciousness to coma, psychoanalysis to psychopathy, free will to forgetting – All in the Mind explores the human condition through the mind's eye.

Our mental machinery remains one of the greatest mysteries of this or any other age, performing for us the most incredible feats of perception, cognition and coordination. Scientists, theologians, philosophers and armchair psychologists alike have long debated its form and function. And yet, the mind, in all its madness and brilliance, continues to elude us.

All in the Mind brings together unexpected voices, themes and ideas and engages with both leading thinkers and personal stories. Psychology and human behaviour are only part of the equation. The program's scope is considerably broader and explores themes in science, religion, health, philosophy, education, history and pop culture, with the mind as the key focus.

This month "deliverator" is the magic word which you will need to know to join our meetup group.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
