The Neuroscientist Novelist | Lisa Genova

Lisa Genova (https://www.lisagenova.com/) graduated valedictorian, summa cum laude from Bates College with a degree in Biopsychology, before pursuing her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Harvard with a focus on the brain and addiction. Genova's TED talk—What You Can Do To Prevent Alzheimer’s—was one of the most popular TED talks of 2017 and has been viewed over 4 million times. So, how did she end becoming a novelist, penning the mega-New York Times bestseller, Still Alice (which was made into an Oscar-winning movie)? And, what led Lisa to not just investigate dementia, Alzheimer's and numerous other neurological conditions, but also write a series of deeply-moving novels that shine a powerful, relatable light on these conditions, including Left Neglected, Love Anthony, Inside the O’Briens and her most recent, Every Note Played (https://amzn.to/2ZepfRJ)? That's what we explore in today's conversation, along with some powerful awakenings, truths and insights about brain health and Alzheimer's. Check out our offerings & partners: Mailchimp: Now what?

Art, Expression & Elevation | Sam Kirk

Sam Kirk (http://iamsamkirk.com/) was born and raised on the south side of Chicago and spent most of her childhood jumping from neighborhood to neighborhood with her family. While she loved exploring new communities and cultures with each move, she was also grappling with her identity as a biracial, queer woman, especially attending religious school. So, she turned to art as a way of both expressing herself and also processing her struggles and awakenings. She eventually found her way into the world of advertising, where she’d rise up the ladder, before the call to paint and create would begin to call her back to the world of being a full-time artist. Now, established with her work in galleries, permanent collections and large-scale public murals around the country and world, Sam creates artwork to celebrate people and to inspire pride and recognition for underrepresented communities that celebrates a wide blend of culture, identity, and speaks to the politics and issues that defin...

Becoming Indistractable | Nir Eyal

Five years ago, Nir Eyal showed the world how tech-companies build apps, games, and platforms that highjack your attention and become near impossible to stop using in his book, Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products. That book became a global phenomenon and opened people's eyes to the power of technology to not just help, but consume our lives. His new book, Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life (https://amzn.to/2KXnkMx), serves as a guidebook for getting the best of technology and reclaiming our attention, without letting it get the best of us. In addition to writing and speaking, Eyal has also lectured at Stanford's Graduate School of Business and the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design. You can find two tools references in the conversation here: schedule maker tool (https://nirandfar.com/schedule-maker/) |distraction guide (https://www.nirandfar.com/distractions/).

Rise of the Super Connector | Chris Winfield

In the mid-to-late 2000s, Chris Winfield (https://www.chriswinfield.com/) was riding high. Living fast, a co-founder of one of the hottest creative-agencies in tech, he had the world at his feet. Secretly, he was dying inside, addicted and, at what seemed like the height of success, Chris' business and life imploded. He realized there had to be another way, starting in recovery he set off on a journey of rediscovery, seeking to figure out who he was, what really mattered and how he wanted to serve. Years later, coming from a more intentional and healthy place, he's rebuilt his life, clean and sober, leading by giving and found a way to tap what he learned was one of his greatest and most valued strengths, his ability to connect with people. That fueled the launch of a series of groundbreaking publicity events for entrepreneurs and experts, Unfair Advantage Live (https://events.chriswinfield.com/), along with a new venture, Super Connector Media, on a mission to help people share the...

The Science of Energy Medicine | Jill Blakeway

When you hear "energy medicine," what do you think? For many, it's a blend of curiosity and caution. You've heard about incredible outcomes after nearly everything else has failed, yet you can't wrap your head around HOW it works, let alone IF it works. Is it real? Is there science? This week, we sit down with Jill Blakeway, L.Ac, DACM, a licensed and board-certified acupuncturist and clinical herbalist, to explore applications, research and scientific bases for this fast-growing healing modality. Blakeway is the founder of Yinova (https://www.yinovacenter.com/), a group of alternative health clinics in New York City. She is also the co-author of Making Babies: A Proven 3-Month Program for Maximum Fertility, Sex Again: Recharging your Libido, and her latest book, Energy Medicine: The Science and Mystery of Healing (https://amzn.to/2SGUi76).

Building Better Boys | Michael Reichert

Michael C. Reichert, PhD (http://www.michaelcreichert.com/)is founding director of the Center for the Study of Boys' and Girls' Lives at the University of Pennsylvania and a clinical practitioner specializing in boys and men, who has also conducted extensive research globally. In his recent book, How to Raise a Boy, he shares powerful stories and research about the behaviors, roles and expectations we place on young boys and how that often locks them into ways of being that are destructive not only to their own lives, but also potentially to their relationships in all parts of life and to society writ large. In our conversation, Reichert also addresses a number of societal myths and offers more constructive, science-backed reframes. At a time when we’re all reexamining questions of gender, identity, behavior and the way we bring ourselves to the world and our roles in teaching those who look to us as models of behavior and values, this topic has never been more important.

Influence For Good | ZoëChance

If I offer the word influence, is your immediate reaction negative or positive? Zoë Chance (www.zoechance.com) has done the research. She knows what the reaction is for most people, it is not positive. But, that doesn’t have to be the case. What if influence could be a force for good? That’s what Chance all about. Her course on influence is one of the most popular at Yale School of Management, her behavioral economics framework is the foundation for Google’s global food policy guidelines and her work is often covered in places like The Economist, The New York Times, and the BBC. In today’s conversation, we also take a step back in time, explore Zoë’s personal journey, which started in a very different place. Prior to teaching at Yale, Zoë managed a $200 million segment of the Barbie brand and received her doctorate from Harvard Business School.

In the Blink of an Eye | Orlando Bowen

In the blink of an eye, Orlando Bowen’s (http://www.orlandobowen.com/) life would never be the same. One moment, he was celebrating the signing of a new contract to play pro football, the next he was on the ground, being physically attacked by members of law enforcement, and suffering an injury that would end his career and lead to a season of life that would profoundly change him. Even though he was a victim, he found himself charged with a crime that, though eventually exonerated, led so many to abandon him. Bowen was forced to reckon with the injustice of the moment, while scrambling to figure out how to take care of his family. It took years, but, led by a giant heart and commitment to service, he rebuilt his living and life. Now a highly sought-after speaker and the founder and Executive Director of One Voice One Team Youth Leadership Organization, Orlando inspires people to get off the sidelines and become GameChangers in business and life. And, remarkably, 10 years after the...
