Share Your Spark

Note: We are no longer accepting submissions to Share Your Spark.

In The Human Spark, Alan Alda travels the world trying to understand one central question:  What makes humans unique?   He speaks to a wide variety of experts who share their original thoughts about our most human characteristics.  Along the way, Alan forms his own intriguing personal view of what our Spark is and where it lies.
