In this episode we talk all things senses and some things nonsense! Our senses define how we perceive the world and indeed our reality. Tom and Mitch explore how various people, and animals perceive the world, debate how many senses humans actually have, ask what it means to have synaesthesia, a rare condition where people can see music and taste sound and take a look at innovative sensory tech.
