Mystery Lecture

78a7e62a seeable

Taught by Jonathan Soma

Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, and plans on getting married to Waffle House. In his more droll moments he is a tragic sellout to higher ed as a professor of data journalism at Columbia University's journalism school.

This is going to be an awesome lecture about kimchi and Prohibition and how to build boats and Sirius and mascara and Thai food and Southerners and abbreviations and Indonesia and sugar substitutes and everything else. It very well may condense up to a dozen or two Brainery classes into the span of one and one-half hours.

Basically it's a wonderful mystery lecture. Not about mysteries, just kind of vaguely described and therefore mysterious. Recommended to people who like science or food or technology or history or language or crafts or sociology or typography or anything one can display interest in.

*Includes fun, facts, and a beer or soda or some other drink of your choosing that happens to be in the fridge.
