Stephen Fry’s Inside Your Mind

3.0/5

Critic Rating

Stephen Fry travels into the most remarkable place we know - our brain. The organ of knowledge and the one we know least about. Over 12 episodes Stephen explores just how much we’ve learned about this mysterious structure in recent years and tries to answer some of the most difficult questions that remain. To do this, we relay the discoveries and stories of neuroscientists, psychologists, anthropologists and even philosophers, to add illumination and perspective as we travel. Each episode will be full of brainy stories: some shocking, some thrilling, some scarcely believable. A SamFry Production for Audible Originals.

James Marriot • The Times UK Feb 4, 2022

"By the time we made it to the bit about the evolution of the brains of cavemen, I was playing sound effect bingo. Crackling flames — tick; improbably sonorous subterranean echoes — tick; inarticulate grunting — missed that one, didn’t think they’d go there, frankly. The content is good though. I hope Fry doesn’t take it too much to brain if I say that his voice gets plummier every time I hear it. Bit rich for me but I suppose I can get used to it. If you really don’t like it then I suppose at least it’s regularly drowned out by the sound effects. I like to call that a nuanced verdict."
