Every October for the last 5 years, some of the brightest and most inquisitive minds around gather in Berkeley for Uncharted: The Berkeley Festival of Ideas. This 2-day event, which takes place on October 5th and 6th this year, is all about introducing you to new thoughts and ideas meant to expand your way of thinking and look at the world in a new or different way. To preview this years festival, we have the people behind its creation on the podcast today: Helena Brantley, who came on last fall to recap last years festival, and Lance Knobel, founder of Berkeleyside. We also talk about the benefits of opening your mind to ideas you never once thought to consider.
