The Dark Side of Story
Does a story need to be true to affect your consciousness? And if positive thinking can be used to improve focus and performance, what about negative thinking? Let's discuss...

Stories We Hold Onto
Sometimes we protect our stories against all reason and evidence. But do we really need the stories that originally inspired positive ideas to be validated? Does having facts debunked make the beliefs that arose from them any less useful? And what if you can't let go of a story that's untrue?

The Stories We Tell About Our Jobs
The only thing worse than having a job is not having one. Why does it seem such a rarity that people are employed doing something they enjoy? Why do we feel compelled to work a job at all?

The Stories They Tell Us About Mind Control
Oooh, Mind Control! It's one of those stories that is pretty hard to believe, so much so that most don't give it much consideration. But is there any truth behind the myth? Let's look at it more closely...

Stories We Tell About Reality
Elon Musk looks like he's never toked on a doobie before, and yet he's telling us, completely sober, that we're probably living within multiple nested computer simulations, like Russian nesting dolls. What is he banging on about? Is there any evidence for this? And why does this idea keep surfacing in popular media? Let's see if we can sort it out...

The Stories They Tell Us About Food
Diet and nutrition are important to everybody, but when you make an earnest attempt to improve your knowledge in this area, it's often confusing, contradictory and ultimately discouraging. There seem to be so many contradictory studies and points of view that it's impossible to determine what diet is truly healthy for a human. Is there an agenda at play? And how do we find a story that makes sense of it all? In this episode of Narratively Speaking, Harv shares his own battles and tries to sort out the truth from the nonsense.

Story is the Meaning of Life
The intention of this episode was to review and reflect upon the topics we've discussed on Narratively Speaking, and perhaps revisit our central premise. I had it all planned out, but then story happened, and life made different decisions. The best laid plans and all that. So fuck it. No clips, no research, no plan. Are you up for a story?

Stories We Tell Through Music
Jay Ridley joins Harv in the studio to discuss music -- why it attracts us, why we create it, how it affects the brain, and how it might just be linked to the collective consciousness. Or not, we can't really work it out either. But it's an interesting conversation nevertheless! Intro Clip - "A Star is Born": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SnMhTOGh3E

Telling Stories Through Character
Adem Koci is host of the Podasta Non Grata podcast, which got my attention when he did an entire episode in the style of an elaborate old fashioned "radio hour" programme, performing the entire show in the character of an elderly gentleman called Gerald Twint. In this episode, I speak to Adem about why we tell stories as characters, how they can function as shields against criticism, and whether it's possible to create so many characters, you lose track of yourself in the process. You can find Adem's amazing podcast at: https://www.spreaker.com/show/podcasta-non-grata_1 Links to the episodes we discuss on the show: The Gerald Twint Radio Style Programme: https://www.spreaker.com/user/ademk/the-gerald-twint-radio-style-programme 52_A dog named "Voldemort"?: https://www.spreaker.com/user/ademk/52-a-dog-named-voldemort The Truth About Harv - A Channel Announcement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-L4uSgCvxc Watchmen - A Popcorn Lobotomy Scathing Reveiw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v...
Our Bodies Express Our Stories
We all know about body language, but are there other ways our bodies betray our private internal world? Humans are subject to a wide assortment of non-verbal communications, and they are going on all the time, even when we'd rather keep the things they express to ourselves. Are these "tells" subconscious, or is it just more evidence that humans are storytelling machines? Let's discuss...

A better way to talk about love | Mandy Len Catron
In love, we fall. We're struck, we're crushed, we swoon. We burn with passion. Love makes us crazy and makes us sick. Our hearts ache, and then they break. Talking about love in this way fundamentally shapes how we experience it, says writer Mandy Len Catron. In this talk for anyone who's ever felt crazy in love, Catron highlights a different metaphor for love that may help us find more joy -- and less suffering -- in it.

Asking for help is a strength, not a weakness | Michele L. Sullivan
We all go through challenges -- some you can see, most you can't, says Michele L. Sullivan.

"The only shoes you can walk in are your own," she says. "With compassion, courage and understanding, we can walk together, side by side."
The biology of our best and worst selves | Robert Sapolsky
How can humans be so compassionate and altruistic -- and also so brutal and violent? To understand why we do what we do, neuroscientist Robert Sapolsky looks at extreme context, examining actions on timescales from seconds to millions of years before they occurred. In this fascinating talk, he shares his cutting edge research into the biology that drives our worst and best behaviors.
How to see past your own perspective and find truth | Michael Patrick Lynch
The more we read and watch online, the harder it becomes to tell the difference between what's real and what's fake. It's as if we know more but understand less, says philosopher Michael Patrick Lynch. In this talk, he dares us to take active steps to burst our filter bubbles and participate in the common reality that actually underpins everything.
Why you should define your fears instead of your goals | Tim Ferriss
The hard choices -- what we most fear doing, asking, saying -- are very often exactly what we need to do. How can we overcome self-paralysis and take action? Tim Ferriss encourages us to fully envision and write down our fears in detail, in a simple but powerful exercise he calls "fear-setting." Learn more about how this practice can help you thrive in high-stress environments and separate what you can control from what you cannot.
How boredom can lead to your most brilliant ideas | Manoush Zomorodi
Do you sometimes have your most creative ideas while folding laundry, washing dishes or doing nothing in particular? It's because when your body goes on autopilot, your brain gets busy forming new neural connections that connect ideas and solve problems. Learn to love being bored as Manoush Zomorodi explains the connection between spacing out and creativity.
There's more to life than being happy | Emily Esfahani Smith
Our culture is obsessed with happiness, but what if there's a more fulfilling path? Happiness comes and goes, says writer Emily Esfahani Smith, but having meaning in life -- serving something beyond yourself and developing the best within you -- gives you something to hold onto. Learn more about the difference between being happy and having meaning as Smith offers four pillars of a meaningful life.
Lessons from the longest study on human development | Helen Pearson
For the past 70 years, scientists in Britain have been studying thousands of children through their lives to find out why some end up happy and healthy while others struggle. It's the longest-running study of human development in the world, and it's produced some of the best-studied people on the planet while changing the way we live, learn and parent. Reviewing this remarkable research, science journalist Helen Pearson shares some important findings and simple truths about life and good parenting.
"Good" and "bad" are incomplete stories we tell ourselves | Heather Lanier
Heather Lanier's daughter Fiona has Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, a genetic condition that results in developmental delays -- but that doesn't make her tragic, angelic or any of the other stereotypes about kids like her. In this talk about the beautiful, complicated, joyful and hard journey of raising a rare girl, Lanier questions our assumptions about what makes a life "good" or "bad," challenging us to stop fixating on solutions for whatever we deem not normal, and instead to take life as it comes.
The gift and power of emotional courage | Susan David
Psychologist Susan David shares how the way we deal with our emotions shapes everything that matters: our actions, careers, relationships, health and happiness.

A talk to share.
How to fix a broken heart | Guy Winch
At some point in our lives, almost every one of us will have our heart broken. Imagine how different things would be if we paid more attention to this unique emotional pain. Psychologist Guy Winch reveals how recovering from heartbreak starts with a determination to fight our instincts to idealize and search for answers that aren't there -- and offers a toolkit on how to, eventually, move on. Our hearts might sometimes be broken, but we don't have to break with them.
Be humble -- and other lessons from the philosophy of water | Raymond Tang
How do we find fulfillment in a world that's constantly changing? Raymond Tang struggled with this question until he came across the ancient Chinese philosophy of the Tao Te Ching. In it, he found a passage comparing goodness to water, an idea he's now applying to his everyday life. In this charming talk, he shares three lessons he's learned so far from the "philosophy of water." "What would water do?" Tang asks. "This simple and powerful question ... has changed my life for the better."
The best way to help is often just to listen | Sophie Andrews
A 24-hour helpline in the UK known as Samaritans helped Sophie Andrews become a survivor of abuse rather than a victim. Now she's paying the favor back as the founder of The Silver Line, a helpline that supports lonely and isolated older people. In a powerful, personal talk, she shares why the simple act of listening (instead of giving advice) is often the best way to help someone in need.
Why it's worth listening to people you disagree with | Zachary R. Wood
We get stronger, not weaker, by engaging with ideas and people we disagree with, says Zachary R. Wood. In an important talk about finding common ground, Wood makes the case that we can build empathy and gain understanding by engaging tactfully and thoughtfully with controversial ideas and unfamiliar perspectives. "Tuning out opposing viewpoints doesn't make them go away," Wood says. "To achieve progress in the face of adversity, we need a genuine commitment to gaining a deeper understanding of humanity."

Episode 45 - Childhood Trauma & Learning
Studies show that children who regularly experience trauma score lower than their peers on standardized tests are more likely to fail a grade, are placed in special education more frequently and are more likely to be suspended and expelled. Research has helped to answer the question why — and the results may surprise you. The good news is we’re also beginning to understand how to address it and help these children succeed in and out of school.

Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up.

What's so funny about mental illness? | Ruby Wax
Diseases of the body garner sympathy, says comedian Ruby Wax -- except those of the brain. Why is that? With dazzling energy and humor, Wax, diagnosed a decade ago with clinical depression, urges us to put an end to the stigma of mental illness.
Want to be happier? Stay in the moment | Matt Killingsworth
When are humans most happy? To gather data on this question, Matt Killingsworth built an app, Track Your Happiness, that let people report their feelings in real time. Among the surprising results: We're often happiest when we're lost in the moment. And the flip side: The more our mind wanders, the less happy we can be.
Could the sun be good for your heart? | Richard Weller
Our bodies get Vitamin D from the sun, but as dermatologist Richard Weller suggests, sunlight may confer another surprising benefit too. New research by his team shows that nitric oxide, a chemical transmitter stored in huge reserves in the skin, can be released by UV light, to great benefit for blood pressure and the cardiovascular system. What does it mean? Well, it might begin to explain why Scots get sick more than Australians ...
The secret to desire in a long-term relationship | Esther Perel
In long-term relationships, we often expect our beloved to be both best friend and erotic partner. But as Esther Perel argues, good and committed sex draws on two conflicting needs: our need for security and our need for surprise. So how do you sustain desire? With wit and eloquence, Perel lets us in on the mystery of erotic intelligence.
Let's talk crap. Seriously. | Rose George
It's 2013, yet 2.5 billion people in the world have no access to a basic sanitary toilet. And when there's no loo, where do you poo? In the street, probably near your water and food sources -- causing untold death and disease from contamination. Get ready for a blunt, funny, powerful talk from journalist Rose George about a once-unmentionable problem.
How to make stress your friend | Kelly McGonigal
Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.
Depression, the secret we share | Andrew Solomon
"The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality, and it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment." In a talk equal parts eloquent and devastating, writer Andrew Solomon takes you to the darkest corners of his mind during the years he battled depression. That led him to an eye-opening journey across the world to interview others with depression -- only to discover that, to his surprise, the more he talked, the more people wanted to tell their own stories.
Why dieting doesn't usually work | Sandra Aamodt
In the US, 80% of girls have been on a diet by the time they're 10 years old. In this honest, raw talk, neuroscientist Sandra Aamodt uses her personal story to frame an important lesson about how our brains manage our bodies, as she explores the science behind why dieting not only doesn't work, but is likely to do more harm than good. She suggests ideas for how to live a less diet-obsessed life, intuitively.
Can the damaged brain repair itself? | Siddharthan Chandran
After a traumatic brain injury, it sometimes happens that the brain can repair itself, building new brain cells to replace damaged ones. But the repair doesn't happen quickly enough to allow recovery from degenerative conditions like motor neuron disease (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease or ALS). Siddharthan Chandran walks through some new techniques using special stem cells that could allow the damaged brain to rebuild faster.
How to live passionately—no matter your age | Isabel Allende
Author Isabel Allende is 71. Yes, she has a few wrinkles—but she has incredible perspective too. In this candid talk, meant for viewers of all ages, she talks about her fears as she gets older and shares how she plans to keep on living passionately.
A neural portrait of the human mind | Nancy Kanwisher
Brain imaging pioneer Nancy Kanwisher, who uses fMRI scans to see activity in brain regions (often her own), shares what she and her colleagues have learned: The brain is made up of both highly specialized components and general-purpose "machinery." Another surprise: There's so much left to learn.
Why thinking you're ugly is bad for you | Meaghan Ramsey
About 10,000 people a month Google the phrase, “Am I ugly?” Meaghan Ramsey of the Dove Self-Esteem Project has a feeling that many of them are young girls. In a deeply unsettling talk, she walks us through the surprising impacts of low body and image confidence—from lower grade point averages to greater risk-taking with drugs and alcohol. And then shares the key things all of us can do to disrupt this reality.
Why some people find exercise harder than others | Emily Balcetis
Why do some people struggle more than others to keep off the pounds? Social psychologist Emily Balcetis shows research that addresses one of the many factors: our vision. In an informative talk, she shows how when it comes to fitness, some people quite literally see the world differently -- and offers a surprisingly simple solution to overcome these differences.
Why we all need to practice emotional first aid | Guy Winch
We'll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness? Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Guy Winch. But we don’t have to. He makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies.
How childhood trauma affects health across a lifetime | Nadine Burke Harris
Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up. Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain. This unfolds across a lifetime, to the point where those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer. An impassioned plea for pediatric medicine to confront the prevention and treatment of trauma, head-on.
Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong | Johann Hari
What really causes addiction -- to everything from cocaine to smart-phones? And how can we overcome it? Johann Hari has seen our current methods fail firsthand, as he has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions. He started to wonder why we treat addicts the way we do -- and if there might be a better way. As he shares in this deeply personal talk, his questions took him around the world, and unearthed some surprising and hopeful ways of thinking about an age-old problem.
How to stay calm when you know you'll be stressed | Daniel Levitin
You're not at your best when you're stressed. In fact, your brain has evolved over millennia to release cortisol in stressful situations, inhibiting rational, logical thinking but potentially helping you survive, say, being attacked by a lion. Neuroscientist Daniel Levitin thinks there's a way to avoid making critical mistakes in stressful situations, when your thinking becomes clouded -- the pre-mortem. "We all are going to fail now and then," he says. "The idea is to think ahead to what those failures might be."
The brain may be able to repair itself -- with help | Jocelyne Bloch
Through treating everything from strokes to car accident traumas, neurosurgeon Jocelyne Bloch knows the brain's inability to repair itself all too well. But now, she suggests, she and her colleagues may have found the key to neural repair: Doublecortin-positive cells. Similar to stem cells, they are extremely adaptable and, when extracted from a brain, cultured and then re-injected in a lesioned area of the same brain, they can help repair and rebuild it. "With a little help," Bloch says, "the brain may be able to help itself."
Your words may predict your future mental health | Mariano Sigman
Can the way you speak and write today predict your future mental state, even the onset of psychosis? In this fascinating talk, neuroscientist Mariano Sigman reflects on ancient Greece and the origins of introspection to investigate how our words hint at our inner lives and details a word-mapping algorithm that could predict the development of schizophrenia. "We may be seeing in the future a very different form of mental health," Sigman says, "based on objective, quantitative and automated analysis of the words we write, of the words we say."
The taboo secret to better health | Molly Winter
Our poop and pee have superpowers, but for the most part we don't harness them. Molly Winter faces down our squeamishness and asks us to see what goes down the toilet as a resource, one that can help fight climate change, spur innovation and even save us money.
Addiction is a disease. We should treat it like one | Michael Botticelli
Only one in nine people in the United States gets the care and treatment they need for addiction and substance abuse. A former Director of National Drug Control Policy, Michael Botticelli is working to end this epidemic and treat people with addictions with kindness, compassion and fairness. In a personal, thoughtful talk, he encourages the millions of Americans in recovery today to make their voices heard and confront the stigma associated with substance use disorders.
There's no shame in taking care of your mental health | Sangu Delle
When stress got to be too much for TED Fellow Sangu Delle, he had to confront his own deep prejudice: that men shouldn't take care of their mental health. In a personal talk, Delle shares how he learned to handle anxiety in a society that's uncomfortable with emotions. As he says: "Being honest about how we feel doesn't make us weak -- it makes us human."
The secret to living longer may be your social life | Susan Pinker
The Italian island of Sardinia has more than six times as many centenarians as the mainland and ten times as many as North America. Why? According to psychologist Susan Pinker, it's not a sunny disposition or a low-fat, gluten-free diet that keeps the islanders healthy -- it's their emphasis on close personal relationships and face-to-face interactions. Learn more about super longevity as Pinker explains what it takes to live to 100 and beyond.
How digital DNA could help you make better health choices | Jun Wang
What if you could know exactly how food or medication would impact your health -- before you put it in your body? Genomics researcher Jun Wang is working to develop digital doppelgangers for real people; they start with genetic code, but they'll also factor in other kinds of data as well, from food intake to sleep to data collected by a "smart toilet." With all of this valuable information, Wang hopes to create an engine that will change the way we think about health, both on an individual level and as a collective.
Don't suffer from your depression in silence | Nikki Webber Allen
Having feelings isn't a sign of weakness -- they mean we're human, says producer and activist Nikki Webber Allen. Even after being diagnosed with anxiety and depression, Webber Allen felt too ashamed to tell anybody, keeping her condition a secret until a family tragedy revealed how others close to her were also suffering. In this important talk about mental health, she speaks openly about her struggle -- and why communities of color must undo the stigma that misreads depression as a weakness and keeps sufferers from getting help.

Want to get great at something? Get a coach | Atul Gawande
How do we improve in the face of complexity? Atul Gawande has studied this question with a surgeon's precision. He shares what he's found to be the key: having a good coach to provide a more accurate picture of our reality, to instill positive habits of thinking, and to break our actions down and then help us build them back up again. "It's not how good you are now; it's how good you're going to be that really matters," Gawande says.

The agony of opioid withdrawal -- and what doctors should tell patients about it | Travis Rieder
The United States accounts for five percent of the world's population but consumes almost 70 percent of the total global opioid supply, creating an epidemic that has resulted in tens of thousands of deaths each year. How did we get here, and what can we do about it? In this personal talk, Travis Rieder recounts the painful, often-hidden struggle of opioid withdrawal and reveals how doctors who are quick to prescribe (and overprescribe) opioids aren't equipped with the tools to eventually get people off the meds.

Teach Me How to Travel on a Budget
Budget travel doesn’t have to mean staying in student hostels, eating fast food, and living out of your backpack. And you don’t need to know “secrets” to get the best deals. Traveling on a set budget requires planning, flexibility, and a little savvy. There are a lot of ways to vacation within your means without sacrificing quality--or getting suckered by a bad deal. Holly and Greg Johnson, the founders of the budget travel blog Club Thrifty, left their jobs in the funeral industry (really!) to embrace the joys of global adventure. Holly shares her tips, hacks, red flags, and all the ways she learned to follow her dreams while taking her family around the world Thanks for listening to Teach Me How to Money.

Teach Me How to Pay Off My Student Loans
You went to college. You took out the loans. Now you’re struggling to pay them back. How are you supposed to build a future when, straight out of the gate, you’re buried in student debt? Student loans are a trillion-plus dollar problem in the US. But that doesn’t mean you have to have the weight of Fort Knox on your shoulders. There are options that you may not be aware of when it comes to dealing with your student loan debt. There’s refinancing and consolidation. But what do those terms even mean? Who do you trust? What does all the fine print mean? And how can we make better financial decisions about our continuing education?

On this week’s episode of Teach Me How to Money, Kristin Wong, the author of "Get Money: Live the Life You Want, Not Just the Life you Can Afford", talks about the difference between being broke and being poor, paying your bills now, and the tiny habits that can turn your attitudes about money around for keeps.

Teach Me All About Credit and Credit Cards
Credit cards can be valuable financial tools, if you know how to use them correctly. They can also get you into serious trouble if you don’t. Learning the difference between healthy and unhealthy credit card use is key to having a strong financial life. And since credit cards often offer rewards and points that can be redeemed for travel miles or cash back, if you’re diligent, they can help you get the things you want, as well as build your credit. Brianna McGurran*, a contributor to the financial site Nerdwallet, teaches us how to use credit cards properly so that they work for, not against us. The following are excerpts from McGurran’s recent conversation on Stash’s “Teach Me How To Money” podcast, with our editorial director Lindsay Goldwert, edited for clarity. 1. You should understand why credit is important. Credit is the thing that lenders look at before they issue you a loan or a credit card. It's your financial history--it's who you are as a person, in the financial w...
Teach Me How To Feel Okay About My Income
Tell us if this has happened to you: your friends invite you to go away on vacation. Cruise tickets? $1,500. You don’t want them to think you don’t have the money to pay for it, so you charge it on your credit card and worry about it later. Or maybe you hear a rumor that your colleague is making more money than you for the same job. You freak out and complain to your boss. Then you realize that maybe, that wasn’t the best strategy to get what you want. Talking about our money and how much we make can be seriously awkward. It brings up all kinds of issues because, well, there’s no handbook for how to have tough financial conversation with friends, coworkers, and even our families. On this episode of Teach Me How to Money, Lindsey Stanberry*, the work and money editor of Refinery29 and author of Money Diaries: Everything You've Ever Wanted to Know About Your Finances... and Everyone Else's, tells how to stop feeling embarrassed about our salaries and start being real (upfront abou...
