Everything I don't get to talk about in normal life. Recurring themes include political science, ideology and the culture wars, media and technology, religion, philosophy, and the personal. By Justin Murphy,  Assistant Professor of Politics at the University of Southampton.

Philipp Streicher is a doctoral researcher in Informatics at the University of Sussex. Philipp studies photic brain stimulation, i.e. the use of light to boost brain activity. He is currently trying to combine light stimulation protocols with neurofeedback technologies, to help people improve their brain function. His startup, Augmind, recently won funding in the 2017 StartUp Sussex competition.

I visited Philipp at his lab, he conducted one of his experiments on me, and then we recorded this podcast. We talked about brain stimulation, economics, politics, and more.
