Curious people who are short on time should check out The Great Courses, available on Kanopy, one of our digital media services.
The Great Courses are lectures by academics or experts leading their fields in research, and an excellent resource for taking a deep dive into a topic in small increments.
For example, the course “Food, Science, and the Human Body” with Anthropology Professor Alyssa Crittenden takes 30ish minutes to compare the Paleo diet with what our ancestors actually ate. While the production is not Youtube slick, the content is fascinating. Why do we only see auroras in certain parts of the country? Check out Episode 33 of “The World’s Greatest Geological Wonders” to find out. Why did the Roman Empire fall? Check out Episode 22 of “The Roman Empire.”
