Every fortnight, The Intersection narrates stories that meld culture, science and history in India. Through interviews, anecdotes and original research, Padmaparna Ghosh and Samanth Subramanian bring alive the rich breadth of human imagination and knowledge, making for a riveting listening experience. The incessant punning — well, that’s just a bonus.
“What wouldn’t I give for more hours in a day!” It’s a common sentiment in our hectic era. One way to do it – to enlarge our days – would be to shrink the time we spend sleeping. Here’s the story of one Akshat Rathi, who did just that in an year-long experiment to survive, and even thrive, on 4-5 hours of sleep every day. Is his experiment a sign of a future in which we can function on less sleep? Were our ancestors, with their afternoon naps, on to something? Tune in to The Intersection to find out.
