Don’t worry if you’ve lost your senses – we’ve found them. Find out why we’ve evolved taste, sight, hearing, touch, and smell the way we have, and why we don’t sense our world through antennae or echolocation. Discover what part of the tongue recognizes anchovies and why cats can’t taste candy. And, in need of some virtual surgery? Visit the robotics lab where computers are wired with the sense of touch.

Also, release yourself from the limits of your biology: from bionic limbs to infrared vision; join humans of the future who are enhanced with super-senses.
Now that you have a feel for the taste of this show by nosing about this blurb, you can see that it’s worth a listen. Make sense?
