Books+ invites you to meet not one, but two David Mitchells. There’s the comedian from Peep Show, That Mitchell and Webb Look, QI and almost every other British panel show you can think of (and he’s written a couple of books too). And the other David Mitchell has written many long and complicated novels – including Cloud Atlas and The Bone Clocks. And at the end of the program you enter a world suffering from an insomnia epidemic. The result: people becoming incoherent, systems falling apart.
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
