Why Scientists Experiment With Demons (Yes, Really) 8

Unlike religion, which banishes demons, the “demons” of science are the problems without clear solutions, and the goal there is to actually bring them to life. Jimena Canales of the University of Illinois joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the scientific thought process of some of the world’s most brilliant minds, a wild journey into imagination, fear, and theory to make the impossible, possible. Her book is “Bedeviled: A Shadow History of Demons in Science.”
