One of the great things about KentPresents is that in today's world, we'll never run out of topics to discuss. In addition to the perennials, e.g., politics, threats abroad, healthcare issues, tech disruptors, economic outlook and more, here are some new topics that we guarantee will stimulate your thinking:

 

The Race to Find Planet 9

From the scientist who helped kill Pluto, the old ninth planet, the story of why he's confident a new Planet 9 is out there, and how he hopes to be the first to find it.

 

Psychedelics... Psychedelics?

Yes, they've come a long way from Timothy O'Leary's day. Michael Pollan has just published a new book out on it, and he'll update "turn on, tune in, drop out."
