This week, we'll examine the illusion of contact. The sheer counter-intuitiveness that on a sub-atomic level nothing actually touches anything else. Whether it's the landing of a boxer's blow or the gentle lapping of waves on a shore, contact remains elusive. On this episode we'll hear from Robert Stephan, Black Era, Siksha, Phasen, Mark.Nine and Matera. I'm Jim Nye.
