The program was sent directly from an auditorium, whith a enthusiastic audience. The three guests, scientists at UCPH, each had their topic: Health, theology and mathematics.

Ethnologist Astrid Pernille Jespersen told about her research in everyday life, why we do as we do. Theologian Mette Birkedal Brunn told about her research in monastic community - and her joy in teaching. And Susanne Ditlevsen told about creativity in mathematics, the pitfalls in statistics and about her efforts to create mathematical models of physiological systems.
