Prodigy examines questions about our psychology and performance. For example: What determines our behavior, environment or genetics and how can we measure their effects? What are personality disorders and how do they influence the way our minds work? Why do accidental savants exist and can we recreate them? What is the psychology of gift giving?

Hosted by Lowell Brillante who interviews more than 30 academics to get a better understanding of intelligence.
