Making Sense of Our World

Welcome to Season 5 of Chasing Life, where we’ll explore the five traditional senses – sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell — and beyond. To kick off the season, Dr. Sanjay Gupta talks to award winning science journalist Ed Yong about his new book “An Immense World, How Animal Senses Reveal the Hidden Realms Around Us.” Ed explains how all creatures live in their own “sensory bubble” through which they experience a sliver of reality. Plus, he takes us on a wild journey through the animal kingdom’s many mysterious senses that exist beyond the reach of what we humans can know. If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to be a dog, a bat or an electric eel, you won’t want to miss this conversation.
