The art of risk taking with author Kayt Sukel #75
Science journalist and writer Kayt Sukel has no problem tackling interesting (and often taboo) subjects spanning love, sex, neuroscience, travel and politics.
In fact, she's so dedicated to the cause that in the writing of her last book, she had an orgasm in an MRI scanner for a Guardian article. (I won't put the link, I'm sure you can google that one yourself).
Her work has appeared in the Atlantic Monthly, the New Scientist, USA Today, the Washington Post and many others. And now, she's tackling risk.
Why it's important to take risks, and how we can take more risks and get outside our comfort zone more?
