Description

You know when you get part of a song stuck in your head? It can be hard to get rid of. As with most things, this has been studied and I begin the episode today with some ways that will help you get that song out of your head. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/03/21/heres-how-get-song-out-your-head/99264896/

We all like to think we have good memories but the human memory is flawed in many ways. 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).

After all we have been through in the last year with Covid-19 you might find it odd to hear that we actually need viruses. But it is true according to Frank Ryan. Frank is virologist, physician, and pioneering evolutionary biologist at the University of Sheffield as well as the author of the book, Virusphere: From Common Colds to Ebola Epidemics – Why We Need the Viruses That Plague Us (https://amzn.to/3cYYQQJ). Listen as he explains what viruses are, what they do and why they are sometimes so deadly.
