About Kahler and Khan

We are Kahler and Khan - your hosts as we explore the historical, scientific, and social roots that underlie the everyday world around us. Even the simplest of things, like the word "Wednesday" have deep roots that lie beneath their seeming mundanity. We believe that exploring and learning about these deeper roots awakens us to the beauty hiding around us and reinforces our common humanity.
