Till Roenneberg – Night Owl vs. Early Bird and the Science Behind Your Sleep Patterns

Podcast cover
Read more

Early birds and night owls are born, not made. Sleep patterns are the primary result of the highly individualized biological clocks we inherit, but these clocks also regulate bodily functions from digestion to hormone levels to cognition. Living at odds with our internal timepieces can make us chronically sleep deprived and more likely to smoke, gain weight, feel depressed, fall ill, and fail geometry. By understanding and respecting our internal time, we can live better. In this episode we interview Till Roenneberg, professor of chronobiology at the Institute of Medical Psychology at LMU in Munich, Germany, and author of the book, Internal Time: Chronotypes, Social Jet Lag, and Why You're So Tired.

"We don't even know how much sleep somebody needs. We can calculate how much sleep someone gets, but we don't know if it's the amount they need. And we know there is a genetic individual difference between how much sleep people need."
- Till Roenneberg
Quotes from Till:
What we learn in this episode:
What is chronobiology?
What is the difference between a night own and an early bird? Is it genetic or environmental?
The science behind out circadian rhythm.
How can you adjust your circadian rhythm?

Joe Navarro - Not many can say they were personally approached to join the FBI, but this is exactly what happened to Joe Navarro while he was working as a police officer at the tender age of 23. He accepted their offer and became one of the youngest agents ever to join the renowned investigative agency.
Joe is quite literally a human lie detector. Having spent over 25 years as a counterintelligence officer with the FBI, Joe has mastered the art of reading non-verbal communication in order to catch spies, convict felons, and thwart terrorist attacks.  In this episode we will learn what to look for in a liar, which body parts "give away the secret", and how you can use your body language to get people to like you, hire you, and trust you.  Joe is the author of What Every BODY is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent's Guide to Speed-Reading People.
"Neck covering is one of the most accurate behaviors that lets you know when someone is worried."
- Joe Navarro
Quotes from Joe:
 What we learn in this episode:
What is the truth behind recognizing non-verbal cues? Is there a silver bullet to detect lying?
What is the science behind human non-verbal communication?
Did you know our fear response is freeze, flight, and fight, in that order?
How should you stand with someone during an intimate conversation?

Dr. Michael Gazzaniga – Left Brain vs. Right Brain

Podcast cover
Read more
Dr. Michael Gazzaniga - Left Brain vs. Right Brain. We often hear that if we're creative we must be "right-brained" but if we're logical we must be "left-brained". Science tells us that each hemisphere controls certain cognitive functions, so it only makes sense that there is a dominant side that gives us our tendencies - but is it true? Are we either "left-brained" or "right brained"? Or better yet, what happens when you disconnect the two regions from each other entirely? For over 40 years, our guest this week has been studying patients who have had their left and right brain disconnected via surgery, and he is here to set the record straight. 
Michael Gazzaniga, is one of the leading researchers in cognitive neuroscience and is the worlds top expert on split-brain research. Michael is a professor of psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the author of Tales from Both Sides of the Brain: A Life in Neuroscience.
He received a Ph.D. in psychobiology from the California Institute of Technology, where he worked under the guidance of Roger Sperry, with primary responsibility for initiating human split-brain research. In his subsequent work he has made important advances in our understanding of functional lateralization in the brain and how the cerebral hemispheres communicate with one another.
Gazzaniga founded the Centers for Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of California, Davis and at Dartmouth College, the Neuroscience Institute, and the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, of which he is the Editor-in-Chief Emeritus. Gazzaniga was a member of U.S. President George W. Bush's Council on Bioethics. He was also the Director of the Law and Neuroscience Project, a project to study the intersection of law and neuroscience.
"The brain is built for us all to make decisions to achieve goals."
- Michael Gazzaniga
Quotes from Michael: 
What we learn in this episode:
Is there such things as left brain and right brain people?
Why can our brain function fairly normally when it is essentially cut in half?
What is split brain research?
What happens when our brain is split in the middle (split brain surgery), disconnecting the left and right hemisphere?

Adrian Gostick – What Motivates You?

Podcast cover
Read more

Over the course of our childhood and into adulthood, we receive a lot of advice on how to find and do work we love. People tell you to follow your passion, or that you should find work that fits your personality, or that you should just learn what your strengths are and only focus on that. All of this is in fact good advice, but it's missing perhaps the greatest component...motivation. You have to uncover what it is that pushes you to take action. The best part about finding what motivates you is that you don't have to know the why....just the what. Once you understand your motivations, you can then move on to see if it aligns with your strengths and personality. But if it doesn't motivate you, regardless of how good you are at it, you just won't be fulfilled. So, this week on Smart People Podcast, we are bringing on one of the foremost experts in helping people discover their motivations, Adrian Gostick. 
Adrian is a global thought leader on workplace strategy and the author of several successful books on employee engagement. In this episode, we are talking about his recent book titled, What Motivates Me: Put Your Passions to Work. This book offers an extensively tested method to help readers identify their core motivators and figure out the disconnects between their passions and their current work, and guides all those searching for joy and engagement by asking the important questions - “What motivates me?” and “What can I do about it?”
His latest book, The Orange Revolution, was a #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller."

"When we realize we have to do something different with our lives, there is a process that we go through - and it can take a long time. But eventually it is going to feel better because we have aligned our work with our motivation."
- Adrian Gostick
Quotes from Adrian:
What we learn in this episode:
There is more to motivation that Dan Pink's "Mastery, Purpose, and Autonomy"
Why are many doctors unhappy and what is it that motivates the majority of them?
How do you integrate your motivations into your work life?

While Chris and I were in our dorm room playing FIFA 2001 on the Playstation2, Alexis Ohanian and his roommate, Steve Huffman, sat in their dorm room a mere 60 miles away working on a website that is now a cultural phenomenon known as Reddit. While Reddit is often called the "front page of the Internet," or an easy way to waste an entire work day, it is known for its open nature and diverse user base.
After leaving Reddit, Alexis continued his entrepreneurial path and helped launch the travel search website, Hipmunk, and an "uncorporation" named Breadpig. Breadpig is a site that allows for the making and selling of "geek" merchandise, with the proceeds being given to charity. Alexis seems to always be at the forefront of the Internet and he became an Internet activist speaking out against Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Senate's Protect IP Act (PIPA).
In his new book titled Without Their Permission: How the 21st Century Will Be Made, Not Managed, Alexis shares his stories, ideas, and tips for young entrepreneurs who are looking to "make the world suck less."
