In the culture of ancient Greece, the term paideia referred to the rearing and education 
of the ideal member of the polis, and thus I chose it for the name of the channel that is 
all about education. 
The theme of the series is cognitive biasesa pattern or habitual inclination (not random)
of people to make mistakes in perception, memory, thought or judgement. Unlike Cognitive 
distortions (depression, anxiety etc.), cognitive biases are considered a normal way of 
thinking that evolved from the evolutionary process. 
Each interlude outlines a different cognitive bias with a short story. The script for the confirmation bias was adapted from the The Hamitic Hypothesis by Michael Robinson.
