My Thoughts: I didn’t think I’d care for this podcast but it was fairly engaging. I tend to space out during well-worn Joe Rogan territory such as psychedelic drugs but was brought back in when they started talking about being able to feel when someone is staring at you and the tests that Rupert has done to show that people can anticipate a phone call from someone close to them or how mothers know when their child needs them.
