The human brain is the most complex thing known to mankind. While there’s still plenty of mysteries to be discovered, a multitude of fields are uncovering secrets every day. Magic of the Mind explores the science of the mind through a radical new lens: audio fantasy. 

Part 1: The Fantasy Story

Each episode follows the story of Eve, a sixteen-year-old scribe traveling the Forgotten Realms of Dungeons and Dragons in search of a place to call home. Written into the plot of each episode is a different topic in cognitive science, that is explored in detail in Part 2.

Part 2: The Interview

Released simultaneously with developments in the fantasy story are interviews with female scientists who study the topics explored in each episode. In the interviews, the writer explains the theories she wove into the narrative, and the scientists expand on what these look like in the real world.
