Cognitive Revolution

By Cody Kommers

Welcome to Cognitive Revolution with Cody Kommers. In this show we'll explore the personal side of the intellectual journey. It's all too easy to see the successes of great scientists, creatives, and thinkers as unattainable. But that's because we only see the outcome, not the process. Cognitive Revolution is a show about the steps these great minds took to get to the top.
