Gone are the days, for most people, when you could sit still in school, get good grades, and have a reasonable expectation of converting your academic achievements into career capital. Because what kinds of careers promise job security and financial stability in a world that's simultaneously flooding and boiling? Australian academic, craftsperson, …
 
An old Jules Feiffer cartoon (which my desultory, last-minute Google search failed to turn up, so I'm doing this from memory) depicts a man who is proud of his active and formidable brain, but views his body as a nuisance that must be clothed, fed, bathed, and rested. He only puts up with his body since he needs it to carry his brain from place to …
 
What's real? And what matters? If those seem like esoteric philosophical questions, I sympathize. I spent many hours studying philosophers whose views seemed utterly disconnected from the important things in my life. And so when I had an opportunity to converse with Jamie Woodhouse, a leading proponent of a philosophy (or is it an mental operating …
 
Why do we communicate with other people? There are many reasons: to build a relationship, to exchange information, to flirt, to teach, to argue, to convince, to comfort... The list isn't endless, but it's pretty long. One of the most common is to coordinate activity toward a goal or outcome. We talk to others to brainstorm and plan approaches, to c…
 
The climate crisis is finally getting front-page coverage from much of the mass media, thanks to extreme weather events, wildfires, ecosystems collapse, and crop failures. And the scientific reports come out seemingly on a weekly basis, each one more dire than the last. So what can we do about it? Mostly, I think in terms of political and social ac…

Skye-Anne Tschoepe is an environmental scientist and activist, and daughter of my good buddy Greg. She and her work have been on my radar since 2018, when at the age of 17, she received a license to hold a TEDx event in her North Carolina town. The topic: "ASK: questions are more important than answers." Through Greg's Facebook feed, I've followed …
 
Dreena Burton's first appearance on this podcast was in May, 2013, before this even was a podcast. I was just interviewing my favorite vegan cookbook authors just for the fun of it - I hadn't even figured out that I could get their publishers to send me free copies! Then we had another chat in 2015 when her game-changing book, Plant Powered Familie…

Caroline Cotto insists she was destined to go into the food business. With a last name meaning "cooked" in Italian, and growing up in Sandwich, MA, I guess it's hard to argue. And a good thing she's here, too. Caroline is cofounder and COO of Renewal Mill, a company dedicated to tackling the issue of food waste by upcycling perfectly good plant-bas…

Meryl Fury, RN, and Aajay Shah, MD, have teamed up to fight obesity and chronic disease among Black women in America.

And as women go, so go children; there's now an…

Glenn Murphy returns to the podcast to discuss a thorny problem that all of us face these days: how to evaluate claims in areas where we aren't experts. For me, that's health and nutrition, politics, economics, business, geology, environmental science, and just about everything else. In other words, my entire life is predicated on some kind of algo…
 
Miyoko Schinner is founder and CEO of Miyoko's, one of the most successful plant-based dairy alternative ventures of the past decade.

Katy Milkman's book, How to Change, is a love letter to science, a friendly reminder of human frailty and magnificence, and a kickass self-help book. Trained as an engineer and computer scientist, Milkman approaches the "ooey-gooey" nature of human complexity as an engineering problem. She reframes our bad habits and dysfunctional tendencies as "fe…

After listening to a podcast interview with the author of Burn, by Herman Pontzer, I told Josh that my mind was blown and he had to read the book immediately.

I'm suspicious of many things, including weather forecasts and bestselling diet books. But topping the list are capitalism and trying to solve problems that were caused by technology with more technology. So I was eager to ask today's guest, Tyler Mayoras, some skeptical questions. Tyler is CEO of Cool Beans, a company that makes some of the cleane…
 
Welcome to the Brain Health Revolution Podcast! In this episode, we took a deep dive into the history and steps of FDA approval of the latest Alzheimer's drug, Aducanumab.

Tara Kemp is a mental health coach and researcher. And, delightfully, she's a very "both/and" kind of person.

There's a song that I can never sing, because it makes me cry so hard (actually, there are dozens, which was a problem when I performed with a string band): "Calling All the Children Home," by John McCutcheon. Go listen to it on Spotify, YouTube, or Pandora - I'll wait. Here's the chorus, describing the scene as his mother calls the songwriter (Joh…
 
In this episode, we sat down, once again, with our dear friend Dr. David Katz, and explored the personal and public impact of COVID-19, what we learned about the failings of our society in the face of such a formidable opponent, the failings of our system to adapt to such a novel threat, how it changed us as a society, and how do we move forward gi…
 
Jack Adam Weber practices Traditional Chinese Medicine and writes prose and poetry.

This week, a conversation with health and wellness guru, Systema For Life regular, and possessor of relentlessly regular bowel movements. Here, we ponder the subject of self-talk, which one way or the other has become louder and more frequent over the last, lonely year. We're often told by therapists, leadership gurus, and cocky celebrities that se…
 
Recently, I read the book Chatter, by Ethan Kross. While it's got some useful tips, it's based on a very limited theoretical framework. Specifically, it views chatter as an entirely cognitive phenomenon. And while there exist good tools to question our thoughts, and neuter the least helpful ones, the mind is not just comprised of thought. We also h…
 
Michele Olender was afraid that her vegetarian daughter wasn't going to get enough nutrients, so she began studying the science of plant-based nutrition.

Chef Lois Ellen Frank, PhD, is a cultural anthropologist, chef and food educator, activist, and self-described "mixed corn" amalgam of many different peoples and cultures.
