Welcome back to Applied Curiosity Lab Radio. In this episode of ACLR we chomp on the Curiosity Bite that explores what makes us roll our eyes. How do you benefit from rolling your eyes?

If you had to do something other than roll your eyes to let someone know you don’t approve of their behavior, what would you do? What’s the history of eye rolling?

What clichés make you roll you eyes? What do you say or do that makes other people roll their eyes?

Discuss, debate, and dissect with us!

The lens is – and always will be – curiosity. Each week, fun informal conversations center around one delectable Curiosity Bite designed to give your brain the time and ideas to think about thinking, to flex your curiosity muscle… and maybe even… revolutionize the way you think.
