When it comes to medical advice, a doctor is supposed to know what is truth and what is myth. However, an amazing number of doctors are misinformed. This episode begins with some information about a survey that showed how many pediatricians believe some common parenting advice that has been proven to be untrue. Source: Baby Facts by Andrew Adesman, M.D. (https://amzn.to/3h0oPLw) Digital communication makes it easy to keep in touch with people but there are also pitfalls. Emails, texts, chats and other electronic messages can be misinterpreted in a lot of different ways. Erica Dhawan is a speaker and trainer who is author of a book called Digital Body Language (https://amzn.to/3nIkKNc). Listen as she explores how to best use digital communication and avoid the missteps that so often happen that can lead to misunderstanding and trouble.  The food we eat today has evolved from the days when we were hunter-gatherers. Today most of the food we eat is farmed and farming changed everything. And certainly, cooking food also changed everything. Even herbs and spices changed the way we prepare and eat our food. Jonathan Silvertown professor of evolutionary ecology at the University of Edinburgh and author of the book Dinner with Darwin: Food, Drink, and Evolution (https://amzn.to/3xHpfMx) joins me for a fascinating discussion about how our food has changed over time and what it has done to help humans evolve.  Do you know how often you are supposed to replace things like toothbrushes, pillows or kitchen sponges? Listen as I explain some expert advice on when to throw the old one out and bring a new one in.

If you don’t wear decent sunglasses outside, you are asking for trouble. Just ask any eye doctor. Ultraviolet light is bad for your eyes - and sunglasses can stop it - if you get the right kind of sunglasses. This episode begins with a description of what to look for in a good pair of sunglasses. https://www.aao.org/eye-health/news/how-to-choose-best-sunglasses It certainly seems like you are the same person you were 1, 2 or 10 years - but you are so very different. In fact, you are not the person you think you are. Different things affect how you act and what you think. That’s according to David Eagleman a neuroscientist who teaches at Stanford and is author of the book Livewired (https://amzn.to/2PH6eIX). Listen as he explains all the things that make you who you are and how those things continually change who you are.  While we are all concerned about what food we eat, it seems we are less concerned about the beverages we drink. Yet, drinks can have a big impact on health and well-being. The sugar in soda and juice, the alcohol in cocktails or the caffeine in coffee - they all impact your life. Alexis Willett, author of the book Drinkology: The Science of What We Drink and What It Does to Us, from Milks to Martinis (https://amzn.to/3gPZ7ck) has researched the common beverages we consume and what the science says about just how good - or bad they are. And she joins me to discuss some fascinating findings you really need to hear. How much you spend in a restaurant can depend in part on the menu. Menus are often engineered to encourage you to spend more. Listen as I explain some of the things to watch out for. https://www.pmq.com/menus-that-sell/ PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!

Everyone is different but when I need to solve a problem or think of something creative, I often lie down, close my eyes and think. And it turns out that is good advice for everyone. I start this episode with some interesting research that reveals why lying down is a good position to think in. https://lifehacker.com/need-a-creative-boost-try-lying-down-5982463 Ever have your heart broken? I think we all have at some point. Psychologist Guy Winch, author of the book How to Fix a Broken Heart (https://amzn.to/2UD20it) joins me to explain why a broken heart feels so horrible, how it is different than other forms of grief and why we need to take it more seriously. A broken heart can have negative long-lasting effects and Guy explains how to minimize those effects so you can move on with your life. What if there was no zero? In the world of numbers, zero is a relatively new addition. And it is the only number that hasn’t changed over time. It is and always has been a circle. Alex Bellos, author of the book Alex’s Adventures in Numberland (https://amzn.to/2MT3G4V) explains some of the fascination facts about numbers like: Why a minute has 60 seconds and an hour has 60 minutes; why a number for nothing (zero) was so revolutionary; why elevator buttons never use negative numbers to indicate floors below ground – and so much more. (Alex is also author of Puzzle Ninja and Soccer School . How can it be that 40% of food in the United States is wasted and thrown away? Many people use coupons and search for bargains at the supermarket and yet so much of that food never gets eaten.

There are a lot of theories and ideas but there is also solid research about this. If you want to know what the research says is the best way to accomplish those big goals, listen to Katy Milkman. She is a professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, host of Charles Schwab's popular behavioral economics podcast Choiceology https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/id1337886873?mt=2- and she is author of the book How to Change https://amzn.to/3gyCGYX. She has some surprisingly simple yet powerful ways to help you accomplish anything.  What is life? Yes, it is a big question but my guest is the perfect person to tackle it. Listen to Sir Paul Nurse who won a Nobel prize in 2001 for his work in science and author of the book What Is Life?: Five Great Ideas in Biology (https://amzn.to/3dVHxC5). He explains what makes something “living” and has some fascinating insights into what life is all about and why some things are still a mystery. Ever have a bee that just won’t leave you alone?

If you saw someone walking down the street and they were not swinging their arms, you would think it looks a little weird. Yet, humans don’t have to swing their arms to walk - we can walk fine with it. This episode begins with an explanation as to why most of us swing our arms when we walk and the benefits of doing so. https://www.wonderopolis.org/wonder/why-do-we-swing-our-arms-when-we-walk No one knows more about how influence and persuasion work than Robert Cialdini. For decades he has studied what does and doesn’t work when you are trying to get people to do what you want. In the 80s he wrote a landmark book on the topic which has just been updated called Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion (https://amzn.to/3dHyjJx). Listen as Robert discusses how little things can have a huge impact on getting people to do what you want. You probably recycle - right? But are you doing it correctly? A lot of things you may think are recyclable are not. And some things that you would assume are recyclable actually gum up the works. You might also wonder just how much of what we put in the recycle bin actually gets made into something else. Listen and be surprised as I am joined by Jennie Romer. She is an attorney and leading expert on single-use plastics, and she is author of the book CAN I RECYCLE THIS? A Guide to Better Recycling and How to Reduce Single-Use Plastics (https://amzn.to/32BfVeS). Wouldn’t it be cool to find something tucked away in your attic or basement that is actually worth money?

When you feel pain or some ache in your body, you likely reach for a Tylenol. And it turns out that you should also reach for one when you are feeling emotional pain as well; such as loneliness or distress. Why? This episode begins with an interesting explanation. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/12/091222154742.htm Even if you keep your home immaculately clean, you are still sharing your house with millions of creatures – both visible and invisible. From the tiniest germs to your dog or cat – all of these creatures have an impact on you. In fact, if you own a cat, there is an excellent chance of getting infected with a parasite that will change your behavior! I know it sounds crazy, but you have got to hear this. Rob Dunn, biologist and professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at North Carolina State University joins me to discuss the fascinating world inside your home you never knew was there. Rob is author of the book Never Home Alone: From Microbes to Millipedes, Camel Crickets, and Honeybees, the Natural History of Where We Live (https://amzn.to/2VE0j5K) One of the big pitfalls of writing texts or emails is that people can misinterpret your intent – particularly if you are being sarcastic. But I have a solution that will make sure people will understand what you are really trying to say in your written communication. http://mentalfloss.com/article/73392/winky-faces-make-your-texts-sarcastic-scientists-say Do you know what your set point weight is? Anyone who has tried to lose weight knows there is a point where you get stuck and it is really hard to drop more weight. Jonathan Bailor, author of the book The Setpoint Diet (https://amzn.to/2SK4V8r) joins me to explain why people get stuck on their set point weight and how to outsmart your body so you can lose more weight.

You are more likely to be happy if your friends are happy- and even if your friend’s friends are happy. This episode begins with a discussion on why that is and how social interactions affects you health and happiness. Source: Tom Rath author of Well Being (https://amzn.to/3xcMYUM)  Your body is very good at telling you when you’ve reached your limit. When you have exercised enough or worked enough or done anything that pushes you to the limit - your body tells you to stop. But have you really reached your limit? Could you do more? That’s what Alex Hutchinson looked into. Human endurance seems to be flexible. People break records all the time. So how does that happen? How do people achieve what was once thought to be impossible? And how can we use this knowledge in our own lives? Listen to this fascinating discussion with Alex who is a columnist for Outside magazine and author of the book Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance (https://amzn.to/3n9j7I7) What is rest? Most of us think that rest is what you get by sleeping or by NOT doing something. Rest turns out to be more complex than that and is misunderstood by many of us. Board-certified internal medicine physician Sandra Dalton-Smith says we all need different types of rest to restore different parts of us. Even if you get plenty of sleep, there are things that can mentally exhaust you or there are conversations with certain people that leave you drained. More sleep won’t help in those cases. You need a different kind of rest. In fact, Sandra has identified 7 kinds of necessary rest. Listen and you will look at the importance of rest very differently. Sandra is author of the book Sacred Rest: Recover Your Life, Renew Your Energy, Restore Your Sanity (https://amzn.to/2RA9t5w). If you have allergies, spring can be a difficult time.

Are only children at a social disadvantage? It has long been thought that children who grow up with no siblings don’t develop the social skills that as well as those who have brothers and sisters. This episode looks at just how accurate that assumption is. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/one-true-thing/201106/susan-newman-the-case-the-only-child Is your behavior all because you choose to do it or are there other forces that determine your actions? Could it be that you don’t really have free will? Robert Sapolsky, a professor of biology and neurology at Stanford University joins me to make the case that we are not responsible for what we do – that our actions are determined more by biological influences than our own choosing. You will find his argument either fascinating or maddening - or both! Robert is the author of several books including the bestseller, Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst (https://amzn.to/2LWQRZR) Rejection hurts. Sometimes it really hurts a lot. Since we all have felt the sting of rejection and will likely feel it again, I have some really good advice and insight on rejection for you from is psychologist Leslie Becker-Phelps author of the book, Bouncing Back From Rejection (https://amzn.to/2Qu2rPu). Listen as she explains why we react the way we do and how to handle rejection so we can process the feelings and get on with life.  When you are are worried or stressed you instinctively rub your head. And that turns out to be a good thing. Listen to how a little self-massage in those times of stress can actually help you work through the problem and make you more productive.

Who doesn’t have a cellphone? It is hard to find someone who doesn’t have one with them all the time. However, there are some circumstances when you really should put your phone away so others don’t see it. I begin this episode by discussing when that is and why it is important. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/9589232/Putting-a-mobile-phone-on-the-restaurant-table-will-ruin-your-meal.html Everyone wants more! Or at least it appears that way. The idea that enough is never enough seems to be human nature. Why is that? It turns out there is a chemical in your brain that drives this behavior. To explain, I am joined by Daniel Lieberman, MD, who is a professor of psychiatry at Georgetown University and author of the book The More Molecule, How a Single Chemical in Your Brain Drives Love, Sex and Creativity – and Will Determine the Fate of the Human Race (https://amzn.to/2RBclxi).

Smile! Why? Because smiling offers a lot of benefits. This episode begins with a discussion on all the good things that happen when you smile more often. http://longevity.about.com/od/lifelongbeauty/tp/smiling.htm What does it take to become wealthy? Sometimes it’s luck or having connections but when you look at middle-class people who become wealthy, it turns out they tend to have similar characteristics and they do a lot of similar behaviors that allows them to accumulate wealth. Joining me to discuss these characteristics and behaviors is Lewis Schiff. He is Executive Director of the Business Owners Council and author of the book Business Brilliant: Surprising Lessons From the Greatest Self-Made Business Icons (https://amzn.to/3ddi0DU). If you want to be wealthy, Lewis’ insights are important to know. Have you ever done something out of spite? Most of us have. And it makes you wonder why. Humans are just about the only creature on earth that acts out of spite. According to psychologist Simon McCarthy-Jones, spite comes from a feeling of injustice - that we have not been treated fairly. And people will often go to great lengths to get vengeance. However, spite may not be all bad. It may just serve a valuable purpose. Listen as Simon explains why we do things out of spite and why spite may be an important force in keeping us all honest with each other. Simon is author of the book Spite: The Upside of Your Dark Side (https://amzn.to/2OO8FJu)  You know when you are having a bad day…? And it seems that the worse it gets - the worse it gets?

This episode begins with a look at how different kinds of music can influence you to spend more or less. https://www.psychologistworld.com/behavior/ambient-music-retail-psychological-arousal-customers Finding that special someone is not always easy. In fact, it can be downright difficult - and in the midst of a pandemic, seemingly impossible. Not necessarily says behavioral scientist turned dating coach Logan Ury. Listen as she shares the latest research on what does and doesn’t work if you wan to find love in the 21st century. Logan is author of the book How Not to Die Alone (https://amzn.to/3cWniDK). Humans are the only mammal on earth that can speak. That ability to make words and relay messages verbally has helped us get to the top of the food chain. Could human speech also be the thing that ultimately destroys us? Listen as I discuss all of this with John Colapinto a writer for The New Yorker and author of the book This Is The Voice (https://amzn.to/2PBA9m5). You will have a whole new appreciation of just how amazing human speech is.  More than half of working people don’t like their job or the place they work according to some surveys. While that’s too bad, what really matters is how much YOU like YOUR job or workplace. Listen as I discuss a way you can find out how satisfied you are in your work.

Conventional wisdom is that you should get a physical exam every year with your doctor. Should you really? This episode begins by exploring who should and maybe who should not get an annual check-up and why. http://www.shape.com/lifestyle/mind-and-body/theres-no-evidence-you-need-annual-physical-exam-say-doctors Your unconscious mind affects your thoughts and behaviors in ways you can’t imagine - because that part of your mind is unconscious. That is the message from John Bargh, Yale professor of psychology and author of the book Before You Know It: The Unconscious Reasons We Do What We Do (https://amzn.to/2JLKN2b). For example, feeling physically warm actually makes you more socially warm; feeling fear makes you think more politically conservative – it really is fascinating. Listen as professor Bargh takes you on a tour of your unconscious mind. Kitchens get messy from lingering cooking smells to fruit flies and a million other things. Listen as I reveal some great ways to solve common kitchen problems you probably haven’t heard before. http://food52.com/blog/14173-7-kitchen-cleaning-tricks-that-really-work How did Facebook, Amazon, Google and other big companies get so big so fast? The answer is “blitzscaling.” It is a recent phenomenon in business that was named and identified by LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman and entrepreneur Chris Yeh in their new book Blitzscaling: The Lightning-Fast Path to Building Massively Valuable Companies (https://amzn.to/2D4HW33). Chris Yeh joins me to explain how blitzscaling works and others in business can use the same principles. PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!

With public restrooms, there is a definite YUCK factor. Still, when it comes to choosing which stall or urinal to use, there is a smart strategy to minimize your exposure to germs and bacteria. I begin this episode by telling you which stall should be your first (and second) choice. https://www.womansday.com/health-fitness/wellness/a58568/cleanest-bathroom-stall/ As amazing as your brain is - it does a lot of things poorly. Our memories get distorted, your brain makes mistakes and misjudgments- in short there are plenty of things your brain does not do well. It turns out those flaws are actually a good thing according to Henning Beck, a neuroscientist and author of the book Scatterbrain: How the Mind’s Mistakes Make Humans Creative, Innovative and Successful (https://amzn.to/31EemMJ). Listen as he describes how these flaws really work in your favor to make your life better, even though it is sometimes hard to see.  The Internet can make your life easier and more convenient, but you do pay a price for that. That price is your privacy according to Firmin DeBrabander, professor of philosophy at the Maryland Institute College of Art.and author of the book Life After Privacy (https://amzn.to/3fzlORx). Firmin joins me to explain what the potential dangers are of this loss of privacy and why so many people are gladly willing to pay the price anyway. Ever wonder why most pencils have six sides instead of being round? A lot of people believe it is so the pencil doesn’t roll off the table. Well, not really although that is a nice side benefit.

This episode begins with a look at some fascinating science of everyday life. For example, how the calorie count for food is determined, what does it take to actually crush a Lego brick, why water of the same temperature feels colder than air of the same temperature – and more. http://mentalfloss.com/article/66086/11-scientific-explanations-everyday-life Do you swear? If so, why? Are there any benefits to swearing? And how has swearing changed over the years? These are a couple of the questions tackled by Emma Byrne author of the book, Swearing is Good For You (https://amzn.to/2vq8R3P). Listen to Emma and you may just come away with a whole new view of the power and usefulness of bad words. You’ve heard the phrase – “Sex sells.” Right? Well actually sex doesn’t sell. Violence doesn’t sell either. You’ll hear about some fascinating research that shows that in terms of advertising effectiveness, sex and violence really get in the way. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3169550/Sex-DOESN-T-sell-Consumers-distracted-raunchy-violent-ads-forget-product-study-reveals.html#ixzz3gdzJRKwe If you watch the news or look at social media a lot, you might think the world is becoming a harsh and terrible place. But could it just be perception? Could it really be that the world and the people in it are getting better and have been for a long time? That is the contention of Gregg Easterbrook author of It’s Better Than It Looks: Reasons for Optimism in an Age of Fear (https://amzn.to/2MddPYH) Gregg explains that when you objectively measure the things that determine how our lives are trending – there are a lot of reasons to celebrate.

This episode begins with an explanation of why and how the weather impacts such important decisions and why you are more likely to buy a convertible on a sunny day even though it may be a terrible idea. https://www.businessinsider.com/the-effect-of-weather-on-purchasing-decisions-2012-11 We like to think we have a personality - but actually we have several. Well actually, more than one. Science writer Rita Carter author of the book The People You Are: The New Science of Personality (https://amzn.to/2D6RHON) reveals how we all have multiple personalities which all come out in different situations. While it may seem like you simply have different facets of your core personality, Rita explains why it is more complicated than that.

Now that spring is here and the bugs are back, this episode begins with some interesting facts about bugs and insects you may not know. https://gohannan.com/common-pests/amazing-but-true-interesting-facts-about-bugs/  No matter how well you plan, things can - and often do - go wrong. Even though you seldom know what will go wrong there are some ways to plan for it according to Frank Supovitz author of the book What to Do When Things Go Wrong (https://amzn.to/39tlLmk). As an event producer, Frank has had to become skilled at planning for the possibility that things won’t go as planned and he has some ideas we can all use to prepare for the worst while we hope for the best. As former VP for the NFL, Frank used to plan the Super Bowl and was the man in charge that day when there was a blackout in the stadium in the middle of Super Bowl 47. Listen to how he handled that and what you can learn from it. There are a lot of things in nature that most of us find disgusting. Yet as disgusting as they are they are still pretty interesting according the Erika Engelhaupt, writer and editor for National Geographic and author of the book Gory Details : Adventures from the Dark of Science (https://amzn.to/39v0IQn). Listen as she explains how tiny bugs live in your pores on you face, how “fatbergs” (like icebergs except made of fat and sludge) flow under our cities, how gross peeing in the pool really is, what ants actually taste like and much more.

That’s according to Herman Pontzer. Herman is one of the foremost researchers in human metabolism and author of the book Burn: New Research Blows the Lid Off How We Really Burn Calories, Lose Weight, and Stay Healthy (https://amzn.to/3cdjiOQ). Listen as he explains why some people are naturally thin while others struggle with weight and why the role of exercise is totally misunderstood when it comes to losing weight.  When you stop and think about it - war is really senseless. Yet for centuries, humans have been fighting and killing each other in war for all kinds of reasons. No country or civilization has gone to war without doing great harm to itself. So why do we do it? Listen to some fascinating insight on this from Mike Martin, visiting research fellow at the Department of War Studies, King's College in London and author of the book, Why We Fight (https://amzn.to/3cf17s2) What does it take to be a champion?

Do you play a musical instrument? If not, maybe you should. This is especially true if you are outgoing and an extrovert. It seems that your personality can predict with great accuracy, how much musical skill and talent you have. We begin this episode by exploring that. http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2015-10/uoc-hyg101315.php You have certainly something about body language and how it works. Well, you are about to get a much better and deeper understanding of it and how you can use it to improve your communication skills. Joe Navarro was a special agent for the FBI for 25 years and he is author of the book What Every Body is Saying (https://amzn.to/2CWKSiR) Listen and be amazed at how nonverbal communication really works. IF there ever was a “Golden Age” of corporate slogans, it was most certainly the 1960s and 70s. That’s when you flew “the friendly skies” of United or “you deserved a break today” at McDonalds or when you used Fed Ex because it “absolutely, positively had to be there overnight.” Those and many other corporate taglines were an important part of their brand. Now do you know the United Airlines, McDonalds or FedEx taglines are today? Marketing executive Steve Cone joins me to make the case that taglines – or slogans – are important and he explains why. Steve is author of the book Powerlines: Words that Sell Brands, Grip Fans and Sometimes Change History (https://amzn.to/2Cs38zJ). If you were to stand in the middle of your kitchen and look around, just how much food would you see? Is it in the fridge and cabinets or is there a lot of food out on the counter?

Some things we don’t remember at all, other things we don’t remember well and most memories get distorted over time. So how does the human memory work and why does it sometimes fail us? To help unravel the mystery is Lisa Genova. She is a neuroscientist, writer and speaker who has appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, Today, PBS NewsHour, and she is author of the book Remember: The Science of Memory and the Art of Forgetting (https://amzn.to/3ccv2B7).

I am hyper aware of body language. It was my survival mechanism as a kid growing up in a hostile environment.

some people either can't, or refuse to read body language. There's this one person who talks to me, and I'm practically screaming at them with my body language that I wish they would leave me alone, but they just keep talking.

sometimes people use Um and Ah to hold onto the floor. They don't want to give other people a chance to speak.

I thought you were much younger! After a long time listening to your voice, I searched your face on Google.

How manipulative. 😒 Using "being nice" to better yourself. How about some free common courtesy.

asking those types of question about immigrants and blacks does allow pollsters to become more judgmental in which they may not have thought about.
