Michio Kaku, Ph.D., is a futurist and theoretical physicist who has popularized science for all audiences. The Ivy League scholar’s presentations include fascinating subjects like the science of dreams (how our prefrontal cortexes disengage, which suppresses the fact-checking component of our consciousness), what makes a super genius, the evolution of intelligence, and the two greatest scientific mysteries. He blogs regularly at Dr. Kaku’s Universe, sharing his thoughts on everything from storing the human soul on a disk to why Hollywood needs to make better aliens.
Kaku has written multiple New York Times best sellers, including his latest, The Future of the Mind (2014), in which he illustrates stunning breakthroughs in neuroscience and how they are unraveling the mysteries of the human brain. He has hosted several TV specials for the BBC, the Discovery Channel, the History Channel and the Science Channel. Kaku was also one of the subjects of the award-winning documentary, “Me & Isaac Newton.”
He hosts the weekly one-hour radio program “Explorations,” produced by the Pacifica Foundation's WBAI in New York. In April 2006, Kaku began broadcasting “Science Fantastic,” which is syndicated by Talk Radio Network and remains the only nationally syndicated science radio program. Some may recognize him from his recent appearance in Turbo Tax commercials.
