101: Blue Pill, Red Pill

Welcome to Make Belief’s Pilot Episode. This is just a sprinkling of what is to come in our series. We start by unpacking the origins and mechanics of Belief: What is it? Why to we Believe? When did we first start believing in things and why is it hard to shake our beliefs? A host of scientists, philosophers, speakers and people on the street weigh in. Then a sneak peek of the pillars of belief to come. Thank you for listening!
