‘Venture into the Extraordinary’ with 7 Days of Genius YouTube Series
Online learning platform and video network Big Think has launched a YouTube series with the 92nd Street Y’s second-annual 7 Days of Genius Festival: Venture into the Extraordinary. The series showcases well-known thinkers such as Arianna Huffington and Bill Nye (the Science Guy).
Running from March 1–8, the series will consist of individual interviews filmed at the YouTube Space NY. In addition to Huffington (who kicks things off via a chat with journalist Maria Konnikova) and Nye (interviewed by journalist Jack Roper), the series will feature neuroscientist Heather Berlin, professor of psychiatry and neurobiology Joy Hirsch, and Carl Zimmer, a science writer/blogger who will interview them both.
You can watch the “7 Days of Genius” series on Big Think’s YouTube channel. Here’s episode one with Huffington:
