Mystery Lecture featuring Tarot! Lord Byron! Hieroglyphics!

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.

The Mystery Lecture is a bimonthly wide-ranging talk that weaves together every topic known to man. Why waste weeks taking dozens of classes when you could just sit for two hours and hear the best parts? It doesn't hurt that you get a free drink, too. 

This month's Mystery Lecture features appearances by tarot cards, for when the horoscopes column just isn't enough, and Lord Byron, the dashing Romantic poet described as "mad, bad and dangerous to know." You'll also learn how to shop for perfume, how to break secret codes, and get down with the twin mysteries of hieroglyphics and mathematics!
