Inquiry welcomes back writer, physicist and physics professor at M.I.T. MAX TEGMARK to continue his conversation about his latest book OUR MATHEMATICAL UNIVERSE: MY QUEST FOR THE ULTIMATE NATURE OF REALITY. Tonight we talk about the concept of MUTIVERSES and how the recent discovery of the remnants of the Big Bang may prove that mutiverses are a reality. If the structure of reality and the cosmos fascinates you, don’t miss this amazing conversation!
Historian and curator at the National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution WILLIAM L. BIRD JR drops by Inquiry once again to talk about his book AMERICA’S DOLL HOUSE: THE MINIATURE WORLD OF FAITH BRADFORD. Bradford spent her life collecting miniature house furnishing and gave her incredible 23 room, 5 story doll house, complete with family, Mr and Mrs Doll and their pets to the Smithsonian. It became one of the museum’s favorite exhibits. But that is just the beginning of this amazing tale of one’s woman’s obsessive art and the nation’s museum. Tune in and listen to one of the great stories of the Smithsonian’s collection!
