For Berlin Science Week, we came up with our own little experiment. We’ve matched two people from different fields that haven’t met before. We want to talk about what they’re working on and perhaps find some common ground.

For this broadcast, we paired up Inga Patarcic, a Ph.D. student at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin, and Henrik Walter, a psychiatrist, neurologist and philosopher who heads the research division of Mind and Brain at the Charité.

Henrik Walter will be one of the Springer Nature Storytellers at Berlin Science Week. You can see him at Prachtwerk on Nov. 5.

And Inga Patarcic will be one of the participants in the Bear Storytelling event at the Maschinenhaus Kulturbrauerei on Nov. 16.
