Jogesh Babu invited guest on SynTalk episode
SynTalk (short for Synthesis Talk) is a freewheeling interdisciplinary talk show with a philosophical approach to understanding the world from a long-term perspective. SynTalk believes that all understanding lies on nodes, and it, therefore, brings together concepts, ideas, and impulses from different epistemological categories under one topic in one episode. The goal is to contribute and promote original interdisciplinary collaboration & research inside, outside, and across academic institutions, companies, think tanks, independent intellectuals, students, entrepreneurs, hobbyists, connoisseurs, and common folk. In the long run, SynTalk aspires to become a global platform for fence-less thinking.
