Looking closer by revisiting lectures

I’m a Libra. I think I’ve mentioned that before, but it’s important to know because it’s an easy way to explain a lot of the things I do.

One of the things is my desire to know a lot of things. That sounds great, but I always want to learn something new, so I have trouble really looking closer into a topic to ever be an expert.

But then, these lectures – which I’m happy to say I’ve now made a habit of going to – are a great way to satisfy both things – learning something new AND looking closer.

Now, I was very excited to discover that several of the recent lectures I’ve been too are available online! This allows me to revisit each, find what I missed when I was there, and to find other items I want to learn even more about. This won’t keep me away from continuing to join them live (in fact, just went to a lecture on the moon yesterday and have a lecture on elephants tomorrow).

But if you’re interested in our hominin ancestors, human evolution and skin color, or the inner workings of the human body, check out these excellent researchers and authors talk!
