About Us

The Mind Meld

News comes and news goes, but there are some questions that never go away. On Great Minds with Michael Medved, thanks to our friends and sponsors at Discovery Institute, I have the opportunity to spend time discussing these perennial, ultimate issues that go to the core of our shared values. To do that, with each show I introduce you to a particularly deep and original thinker, a great mind to help us explore great ideas.

Center for Science and Culture

Headquartered in Seattle and founded by  Bruce Chapman and George Gilder in 1991, Discovery Institute has a special concern for the role that science and technology play in our culture and how they can advance free markets, illuminate public policy and support the theistic foundations of the West.

A program of Discovery Institute, the mission of the Center for Science and Culture is to advance the understanding that human beings and nature are the result of intelligent design rather than a blind and undirected process. We seek long-term scientific and cultural change through cutting-edge scientific research and scholarship; education and training of young leaders; communication to the general public; and advocacy of academic freedom and free speech for scientists, teachers, and students.
