Humans are not entirely rational - and perhaps that's not even desirable. Or is it? In this episode, Jacob outlines his irrational fear of flying (when he becomes extra religious - to the point of southern baptism), and then proceeds to make the case that there are aspects of life that are out of bounds of rationality.
Jacob Sundberg is a Swedish author (http://jacobsundberg.se) and Johannes Koch is a German journalist. Together they hypothesize, entertain and enlighten you about a wide variety of topics ranging from the trivial to the existential - and usually spin them out into their illogical conclusions. At times philosophical, at times psychological but hardly ever researched or serious, they jostle with a new (Un)cultured Hypothesis every other week.
