We swerve high science through pop music, modern art through obscure sport, street politics through kids’ TV, getting jokes and theories and guesswork and passions to socialise as openly and engagingly as we like to. We enjoy tripping each other into seeing things in new ways; we’ll do that for you too. Our format -- a round-table discussion with a host and three guests, punctuated by music, prepared reports and prerecorded comedy items -- is highly flexible and self-refreshing, alive with ideas, and devised to make for intelligent, informative, unexpected and funny discussion.

We get to the root of human problems like anxiety and depression and relationship issues by unpacking the idea of self-deception, an integral mechanism of life. There is a light of truth to which we have constant access, which when we act against we necessarily blind ourselves to the truth and suffer the consequences, even when we're not aware of what we're doing and are uncondemned by God. That's the idea. I believe it has great potential to unlock our ability to recover from powerful human problems and direct our efforts in this way. Join me on this journey!
