How do you feel about Adderall? Would you use magnets to treat depression? Hello world and welcome to “So Curious” presented by The Franklin Institute. In this season, Human 2.0, we are going to be asking these questions and more. Listen along as we talk about all things human science. Join our hosts, NYC comedian, Angelica Pasquini and Philadelphia rapper, The Bul Bey (but you can call him Bey) as they explore their curiosities with world renowned scientists.
Angelica Pasquini is a comedian, writer & musician. Her work touches on the intrusive nature of technology, societal standards around modern living and important things like observational fashion commentary. You can see her perform live in New York City where she lives, laughs and loves to go out to dinner. Her podcast “Go On… with Angelica Pasquini” is available on all podcast platforms.
The Bul Bey
Rapper-songwriter The Bul Bey tells the authentic story of Philadelphia native meets global citizen. With the optimism of a school teacher, the honesty of an Imam, and a lexicon only a Philly Bul could truly comprehend, the playful Hip Hop wordsmith’s bouncy bars elevate the bright sides of working-class life.
