Here We Are with Shane Mauss Live Podcast!

Here We Are is a podcast about science from stand-up comedian Shane Mauss.
Each week Shane interviews scientists from various fields about the meanings of life.
On the show we learn about most interesting theories and research to answer questions of how we evolved to be here, why we behave the way we do, and some of the biggest ideas about life in a highly accessible, funny, and interesting way. The aim is to look at life in many different ways and better understand life.

Now nearing 100 episodes, we’ve decided to do the first live recording at The Cape Fear Comedy Festival. Shane will be hosting the show and has invited three very interesting guests from UNC–Wilmington for a very special evening.

About the host:
Originally from Wisconsin, Shane Mauss has been doing stand-up comedy for 12 years. He’s performed on Jimmy Kimmel, Showtime, 5 times on Conan, has a Comedy Central Presents and a special on Netflix. He travels the world performing as a stand-up and in his travels talks with scientists for the Here We Are Podcast.

About the guests:
Professor Julian KeithJulian Keith – I received PhD in Psychology from Univ of Colorado, Boulder in 1990. I’ve been on the faculty at UNCW since 1990 where I am Full Professor and Department Chair. The first 20 years of my career focused on brain mechanisms of learning and memory. The past ten years I’ve been concentrating on attention and self-regulation and the uses of neurofeedback to enhance skills in these areas. Lately, my interest in those topics has led me to wonder whether it is possible to develop a coherent and testable neuroscientific theory of Buddhist enlightenment.

He is married and has two children aged 12 and 14. He use to play basketball and football, but is now too old for anything fun. He now “golfs” 5 times per year, but is not especially good at it.
