This ingenious feast of knowledge presented by iMinds includes 72 self-contained micro-courses on subjects as varied as international whaling practices, the life and legacy of Andy Warhol, the future of wind power, the controversy surrounding military detention center Guantanamo Bay, and the ritual meaning of Stonehenge.

The actors' voices are pleasant and refined, further bolstered by subject-appropriate background music that heightens the human performances without calling too much attention to itself.
