Naked Humanity

By Stefani Ruper

To try to get to the bottom of the greatest mystery of all time - the human species - Oxford PhD Stefani Ruper chats with experts in fields as wide ranging as anthropology, ethics, and string theory. She asks them questions like: Are we doomed to self-destruct? Do we have free will? Why are people so beautiful and so messed up at the same time? Tune in for an unapologetically candid look at human nature and modern culture. Walk away with refreshing wisdom about how to best be human in these extraordinary times. Episodes twice weekly.
