In Episode 136 of the podcast, we’re celebrating Columbus Day. Actually, we start there and veer into topics such as perceiving things that we’ve never seen before, how connected everything in the universe really is, and humanity’s collective memory.

A pre-podcast apology, so we can minimize the letters to the corrections department this week: In the last third of the podcast we discuss a subject involving the memory of a particular tragic event that cites a TED talk about the issue (http://metabunk.org/threads/780-TED-Talk-When-a-quot-memory-expert-quot-get-it-wrong). I’d tell you what it is, but I’m sure you’ll know it when you hear it. Several members of Octavarius found the claim within very hard to believe, and there’s a good reason for it. As it turns out, the TED speaker was using false information and we were suckered into believing him. So we apologize if we stir up some negative feelings by the claims that we make in this portion of the podcast. But if you really want to point the finger at someone, click the above link and blame that guy.
