Editorial Reviews

The Specialist series from iMinds takes one of the acclaimed audio company's 12 broader categories (i.e., Arts, History, Culture & Religion, etc.) and explores it in more detail. In Medicine & Invention, Volume 1, the wise teachers behind the iMinds phenomenon take a concentrated look at Penicillin, the Internet, the Bubonic Plague, epidemics, and REM sleep, among other absorbing topics. Each subject is clearly delineated by alternating performers and background music, ensuring that listeners can skip around to what interests them. Chances are, however, that based on the superb production quality and intellectual value of these recordings, listeners will not desire to do any skipping.
