You Should Know This! Nerd Comedy

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Hacking Human Perception with Kara Platoni

There is no reality; only perception. Soak in those immortal words of Dr. Phil. Okay, he's a bit cheesy but he's on to something as science is increasingly finding the line between perception and reality blurry. We don't perceive reality, we create it through perception. Cue: mind blown. On You Should Know This!, where serious ideas meet ridiculous comedy, science reporter Kara Platoni will reveal how humanity is hacking the senses and what it means for the future. Joining her on stage will be the hilarious comedians Joe Tobin (SF Punchline) and Florentina Tanase (Cobb's Comedy Club), and your host Kevin Whittinghill.

More about Kara!
Kara Platoni works the Nancy Drew beat, going anywhere there is a possibility of a weird adventure involving pirates, old clocks or (ideally) ghosts. For her book, We Have the Technology, she sofa-surfed through four countries and eight US states, visiting any lab, military base or biohacker basement that would let her get in on an experiment on the cutting edge of sensory science. She teaches narrative writing at UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism and was a staff writer at the East Bay Express for many years, where her main interest was covering con artists.
