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.

Gain some insight about yourself, enjoy some laughs, and join Drs.

Alan Watts is one of the most widely read philosophers of the 20th century.
