Instead of aiming for perfection, today we're focusing on the small changes you can make to live a less toxic life.Instead of aiming for perfection (impossible) or changing everything at once (hard and never leads to lasting change), Gin Stephens' new book Clean(ish): Eat (Mostly) Clean, Live (Mainly) Clean and Unlock Your Body’s Natural Ability to Self-Clean cuts through the confusion and fear, showing how to lower your toxic load through small changes, smart swaps, and simple solutions, while still living an enjoyable lifestyle. The ish makes it doable.

Beyond looking at the harm that chemical additives in foods do to us, Gin explains how many of the personal care items and cleaning products we use are full of toxic chemicals, wreaking havoc on our health, often by decreasing the diversity of our gut microbes. Tips for simplifying cleaning products and homemade cleaners help reduce exposure to these toxins.

EP 1076B - A Minute to Think: Reclaim Creativity, Conquer Busyness, and Do Your Best Work

The global workforce has a busyness problem. We’re overworked, overwhelmed, and operating at breakneck speeds.The global workforce has a busyness problem. We’re overworked, overwhelmed, and operating at breakneck speeds. Every space on our calendars is filled to the brim, with no minute to spare and no moment left un-maximized. Urgency is the norm and immediacy is the gold standard. It’s no wonder that, as we emerge from the disruption of the pandemic and head back to the office, weary professionals are experiencing burnout like never before and 40 percent of workers globally are considering quitting their jobs.

For a workforce that was already fried and now completely burnt, continuing our current frantic work pace and pressure could have serious consequences for individuals and organizations alike.

With her new book, A Minute to Think, renowned speaker and executive advisor Juliet Funt presents a fundamental reimagining of how we approach work that meets the unique demands of the current moment.

She reveals the performance-enhancing power of the strategic pause -- periods of open, unscheduled time that allow us to think more wisely and creatively. These strategic pauses give our sparks of talent and contribution the oxygen they need to catch fire. When reinserted into our busy schedules, whether in short sips or long gulps, they can change the very nature of work.

From renowned ABC News anchor/correspondent and former insomniac Diane Macedo, comes a practical, user-friendly guide to getting better sleep. The Sleep Fix flips the switch on common advice, illuminating the reporter’s relentless search for how to get a good night’s sleep and the surprising, scientific, and practical solutions she found along the way.

Roughly 30% of the population is estimated to be living with insomnia, while many more unknowingly suffer from other sleep disorders. In The Sleep Fix, Macedo aims to change that with perspective-shifting research and easy-to-implement solutions based not just on science and experts, but also on her own years-long struggle.

As an early-morning reporter and overnight news anchor, Macedo learned the hard way how valuable sleep is, and how it affects everything from our heart to our brain to our immune system. The longer Macedo struggled, the more her health deteriorated. Desperate, she tried standard sleep tip after standard sleep tip, but nothing worked - instead, it made her worse.

Finally, after developing a tolerance to sleeping pills, Macedo decided to attack the problem as a journalist, interviewing sleep experts from all over the world to get to the bottom of what really keeps us from sleeping—and the various ways to fix it.

Most of the stress in this country is caused by money and financial woes.

So today we’re welcoming popular podcast host of Be Smart and bestselling financial author Jared Dillian to the show.

In the early 2000s, Jared routinely traded over a billion dollars a day as the head of ETF trading at Lehman Brothers. His memoir covering that period, Street Freak: Money and Madness at Lehman Brothers, was named Businessweek’s #1 general business book in 2011. And his first novel, All the Evil of This World, was published in 2016.

Today, hundreds of thousands of people regularly read Jared’s work, which includes three investment newsletters—The Daily Dirtnap, Street Freak, and ETF 20/20—along with two weekly e-letters, The 10th Man and The Jared Dillian Letter.

EP 1072B - The Sticklers Guide to Science in the Age of Misinformation

Podcast cover
Read more
Superfoods, right brain versus left brain, lungs of the planet—these and other commonly shared pop-science phrases are certainly catchy and all-to-quick to trend online. But they are also often wrong (or at least not quite right).Superfoods, right brain versus left brain, lungs of the planet—these and other commonly shared pop-science phrases are certainly catchy and all-to-quick to trend online. But they are also often wrong (or at least not quite right). These shorthand analogies, memes, and buzzwords distort the actual science and leave out key details, leading readers to develop a misunderstanding of the world around them.

In The Stickler’s Guide to Science in the Age of Misinformation, R. Philip Bouchard takes a closer look at 13 pervasive scientific untruths—tackling a range of topics from gravity and radiation to global warming and pandemics—and humorously and accessibly shares the real science behind them. You’ll learn why trees do not “store” carbon dioxide, why DNA is not really the “blueprint of life”, and why a day is not actually 24 hours.

Philip Bouchard is a lifelong “natural science nerd” with a track record of creating successful educational media. As a software engineer and educator, he designed the famous 1985 computer game The Oregon Trail, which went on to sell 65 million copies. Smithsonian magazine called the game "a cultural landmark” and TIME named it as one of the best ten videogames of all time. Bouchard holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in botany from the University of Georgia and the University of Texas at Austin.

Podcast cover

Each year, Americans consume food products that contain heavy metals, pesticides, and harmful additives—with the blessing of the FDA. Why is this happening and why haven’t you heard about it?Each year, Americans consume food products that contain heavy metals, pesticides, and harmful additives—with the blessing of the FDA. Why is this happening and why haven’t you heard about it? In Unsafe at Any Meal, Dr. Renee Dufault, former food investigator for the Food and Drug Administration, provides startling answers.

While at the FDA, Dr. Dufault discovered toxic mercury residue in the plumbing systems of food manufacturing plants and in processed foods sold in supermarkets. When Dr. Dufault revealed these disturbing findings to her superiors, she was told to stop her investigation. She retired early and devoted her energy to making the public aware of the insidious dangers that contaminate our food. To expose what still seems to be a well-kept secret by the FDA, she has written Unsafe at Any Meal to provide consumers with the information they need to know.

Dr. Dufault joins us this episode to discuss her incredible career, findings, and book.
