Yes - I'm a fan of her podcast, Inquiring Minds
The last two lectures on emergence
Professor Indre Viskontas provides a deft overview of 12 major science concepts, ranging from the macro - the creation of the universe, principles of physics and black holes to the micro - the human neuron and quantum mechanics. She communicates her excitement for the subject matter throughout, while acknowledging the limitations of current science and potential for future advancement.
The final two lectures, on the new science of emergence, were particularly fascinating to me, as it was a completely new topic to me, unlike some of the others.
The only flaws in the recording were a few missed edit points in later lectures - one line repeated twice.
Definitely yes - great history well delivered.
The recording had some flaws; I think patch sessions were recorded with a different mic, and poorly inserted, leading to volume discrepancies that distracted from the reading.
Honest, fair appraisal
Ron Chernow's biography of Hamilton - the two books dovetail nicely, in covering much fo the same territory through different perspectives.
