Why does time pass more slowly or quickly depending on what we are doing? Why is it that we sometimes completely lose track of the time, and what does it mean to truly live in the present? Are the past, the present, and the future all happening at the same time (at least in our minds), and has the future already happened?

These are just some of the intriguing questions we ask ourselves this week, particularly given the unprecedented time we are all living in. (By the way, did you know that "time" is the most commonly used noun in the English language?)

We revisit an earlier episode, an interview with author and time expert Alan Burdick, to get some insight into our discussion.

Grab a copy of Burdick's book Why Time Flies, a deep dive into the mysteries of time, here.

Listen to Episode 148: TIME FLIES (with Alan Burdick) here.
