Episode Description

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join Tom and Mitch as they explore the world of colours! In this unexpectedly trippy episode, the boys start out with some world news and dive into is black really a colour? What is colour anyway? Perhaps colours only exist in our brains and are a by-product of light? Tom explores how objects gain their colour and Mitch leads us down the route of how we perceive them! The boys then run through the existence of impossible colours and how that ties in with Synaesthesia. Music: WhiteBatAudio.com
