Baba Brinkman is a rap artist, playwright, and popularizer of science and literature. He received an MA in English Literature from the University of Victoria, and has written and produced a series of award-winning comedy rap theatre shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and off-Broadway, including the peer-reviewed Rap Guide to Evolution and Rap Guide to Human Nature, and The Canterbury Tales Remixed.

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Baba and chatting about his development as a rapper. I also gave him a battery of psychological tests, and we discussed his results. Have you always wondered whether Baba Brinkman has adaptive forms of narcissism (admit it, you have)? Then check out this video right away!
