So Curious!

The Franklin Institute

So Curious!, a podcast from The Franklin Institute, dives into the curious and sometimes weird world of science. Our hosts, a hip-hop artist and a stand-up comedian, both Philly natives, talk to the experts to break down what’s happening in science now. Join us for inclusive, lively and insightful discussions, just like inviting the best and brightest of scientists over for dinner and getting their insight on that season’s topic over food and drinks. With the guidance from TFI’s Chief Bioscientist, we’ve covered topics from biohacking to how porn affects the brain, personalized medicine to tech & relationships - and now, the science of mental health! Hosts Kirsten Michelle Cills and The Bul Bey tackle the important and timely topic of mental health. What happens in your body when you feel emotions? How does genetics play a role? How does food affect our mental health? How have treatments changed over the past decades? Listen with us as we learn from industry experts – and take a moment or two to breathe. New episodes every Tuesday. Learn more at
