Positive psychology—with Martin Seligman. During the 1960s the field of psychology focussed on the science of how past trauma creates present symptoms, and how to reduce people’s misery.

In Part 1 of our 2 programs with Martin Seligman, hear him address an exclusive audience in Australia on happiness and human flourishing.

#3 I Have Got Some People Waiting For Me. Aziz’s life has been a story of chance – and choice. As Michael pieces together Aziz’s journey from Sudan to Manus, he realises Aziz has been searching for a safe place for about eight years. So what gives him the ability, and the energy, to speak out? How has Aziz fought for so long, and what makes him want to be ‘the messenger’? ‘I’m pretending like I’m really happy, and laugh, and you know, smiling on the phones and doing stuff like that – so they feel like, “Oh, my son is really living in a good environment”. So they think like that, but the opposite is the truth.’ Aziz Aziz tells Michael, ‘I have got some people ...waiting for me. They love me, they want me to be with them.’ Haltingly, and sometimes with great difficulty, Aziz starts to share stories about his home, the family that he longs to see, and why he fled. Looking to find out more, Michael speaks to Sudan expert Anne Bartlett about the current situation there. As Aziz shares snapshots from his past, Anne talks Michael through the conflict in Sudan, which, despite leaving the headlines long ago, continues to unfold. Michael worries that he’s adding to Aziz’s trauma by digging up painful memories – ever aware of how hard it is to have these kinds of conversations in short, overlapping messages, without the benefit of reading someone’s signals face to face. Meanwhile, Aziz weighs up how much to tell his family about Manus, and explains to Michael why he’s sometimes tortured by regret.

#107: The Scariest Navy SEAL I've Ever Met...And What He Taught Me. Jocko Willink (@jockowillink) is one of the scariest human beings imaginable. He is a lean 230 pounds. He is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu expert who used to tap out 20 Navy SEALs per workout. He is a legend in the Special Operations world. His eyes look through you more than at you. He rarely does interviews, if ever. But a few weeks ago, Jocko ended up staying at my house and we had a caffeinated mind meld. Here's some background... Jocko enlisted in the Navy after high school and spent 20 years in the SEAL Teams, first as an enlisted SEAL operator and then as a SEAL officer. During his second tour in Iraq, he led SEAL Task Unit Bruiser in the Battle of Ramadi--some of the toughest and sustained combat in the SEAL Teams since Vietnam. Under his leadership, Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated Special Operations Unit of the entire war in Iraq and helped bring stability to Ramadi. Jocko was awarded the Bronze Star and a Silver Star. Upon returning to the United States, Jocko served as the Officer-in-Charge of training for all West Coast SEAL Teams, designing and implementing some of the most challenging and realistic combat training in the world. So why is Jocko opening up? Well, in part, we have mutual friends. Second, he is the co-author of an incredible new book — Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win -- which I've been loving. Trust me. Buy it. This is his first mainstream interview and one you won't want to miss. Show notes and links for this episode can be found at www.fourhourworkweek.com/podcast.

Rank #1: Episode 20: The Results Are In - "Safety First" Is The Future Of Drug Education. DPA’s revolutionary high school drug education curriculum “Safety First” was piloted at Bard High School Early College Manhattan this spring. The results are in, and they’re very encouraging for the future of drug education.

Rank #1: News: SF Opening SIFs, ICC Opens Philippines Inquiry [#133]. This week, Sam and Sarah talk about the latest drug news. They start off with one of the biggest stories of 2018 so far: San Francisco moving ahead with safe injection sites, which will open around July 1, on the same timeline that Massachusetts is implementing sales of marijuana to adults. It’s then a bunch of ups and downs: a judge’s recommendation for a defendant to be sterilized brings up some questions of how consensual it really was, the FDA is trying to convince the public that kratom should be treated like heroin and other opioids, and the International Criminal Court is finally opening an inquiry into extrajudicial killings in the Philippines. All of these stories are major threads in the current drug policy discussion, so updates will surely be on the way in the coming weeks and months.News Updates: SF safe injection sites expected to be first in nation, open around July 1 Judge suggests drug-addicted woman get sterilized before sentencing, and she does FDA Weaponizes ‘Opioid’ Label Against Kratom Consumers FDA press release from Tuesday Philippines drugs war: ICC announces initial inquiry into killings Statement from opposition politician Gary Alejano Headlines: In an op-ed on Wednesday, David Keene, a former president of the National Rifle Association, said that medical marijuana patients should be able to buy and possess firearms, writing, “Trading a constitutional right for pain relief is a choice no one should have to make.” Thus far, the NRA as an organization has failed to stand up for patients’ gun rights. On Monday, February 5th, US District Judge Brian Cogan ordered information about jurors in the trial of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman will be kept from Guzman, his lawyers, the prosecution, and the media. Jurors will also be escorted to and from the court by federal marshals. Now that its marijuana law is at least partially implemented, Maine is now the only state in the US that protects employees from being fired or disciplined for marijuana consumption in their personal time. This also means employers, including the state government, can no longer screen potential hires for marijuana before deciding whether to give them a job. The Mississippi House voted 113-2 on Tuesday to advance a bill titled “Urine Trouble.” If passed by the Senate, the legislation would outlaw the sale and purchase of synthetic urine. Forecast: Tuesday, February 27, in Arkansas: Arkansas will announce the winners of the state’s medical marijuana cultivation licenses. They received 95 applications for only 5 licenses, so it’s an incredibly competitive process. The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission says they will probably not release the winners of the 32 dispensary licenses until April, since it’s taking much longer to score the 227 applications for those licenses. Tuesday, February 27, in NYC: the Drug Policy Alliance’s Office of Academic Engagement will host a Drug Researchers’ Roundtable about “Naloxone as a Technology of Solidarity in the History of Opioid Overdose and Overdose Prevention.” The event is free.

Rank #2: News: Law Enforcement & the War on Drugs [#144]. Sarah and Rachelle discuss the failures of punitive drug policies. They discuss Maryland’s efforts to reduce drug trafficking, who should be held responsible when someone overdoses while incarcerated, and why compassion makes a difference. Big changes in Arizona and Florida are also on the agenda, but the highlight this week is a story about nuclear missiles and LSD.News Updates: To cut prison drug smuggling, Maryland is restricting inmates’ access to books If an inmate dies of an overdose, who is to blame? This lawsuit says jailers are. ‘I need help,’ addicted dealer begs judge, ‘I’ve been coming to jail since I was 13’ Bangladesh’s Philippines-style drugs war creating ‘atmosphere of terror’ Headlines: The Arizona Supreme Court has ruled that medical marijuana patients have the legal right to carry their medicine on campus at colleges and universities. Card-carrying medical marijuana patients may, however, still be subjected to disciplinary action or even eviction from campus housing. Florida Governor Rick Scott approved budget cuts which will target programs offering substance use treatment for incarcerated people across the state. Treatment providers and employers of inmates on work release oppose the cuts, with one employer stating “Not only are you taking jobs, you’re taking lives.” Fourteen members of the United States Air Force, responsible for guarding the country’s nuclear missiles at FE Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming, have been disciplined for the use and distribution of LSD. According to officials, none of the use occurred while on duty. On Wednesday, while speaking at an American College of Emergency Physicians forum, US Surgeon General Jerome Adams announced his support for supervised injection sites. Citing the success of harm reduction efforts in France, he said simply “we know that this can work.” Forecast: A bill in the legislature, SB 336, would allow individuals who qualify for opioid prescriptions to apply for the state’s medical cannabis program. Has already been approved by the Senate, and has been voted out of committee 8-3. Now, it will go before the House floor for final approval, before being sent to Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner for his signature. But, Gov. Rauner has previously opposed attempts to expand the medical marijuana program. The legislation is expected to receive a full house vote by the end of the week. On Thursday, June 7, the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction will release the European Drug Report 2018: Trends and Developments. The report includes a comprehensive analysis of patterns across the EU, the 2018 Statistical Bulletin, and 30 Country Reports.

Rank #1: 383. The Zero-Minute Workout. There is strong evidence that exercise is wildly beneficial. There is even stronger evidence that most people hate to exercise. So if a pill could mimic the effects of working out, why wouldn’t we want to take it?
Rank #2: 379. How to Change Your Mind. There are a lot of barriers to changing your mind: ego, overconfidence, inertia — and cost. Politicians who flip-flop get mocked; family and friends who cross tribal borders are shunned. But shouldn’t we be encouraging people to change their minds? And how can we get better at it ourselves?
Rank #1: Episode 120: Whistle While You Work. Human ambition has led us to some amazing achievements, and taken us to unexplored places. But it has also lured us into places where there is a lot more fear and danger than we are used to, and the stories that have grown out of that world have left the world a richer—and more frightening—place.* * *This episode of Lore was sponsored by:Squarespace: If you're passionate about it, show it off.

Were they merely a product of their ancestors, or innocent participants in a regional panic?Lore WebsiteNovels by Aaron Mahnke

Rank #1: The (Misunderstood) Story of NATO. On a combative opening day of the NATO summit in Brussels, President Trump called other member countries “delinquent” on military spending and attacked Germany as a “captive” of Russia. We examine where his frustration is coming from. Guest: David E.

Rank #2: The Freshmen: Mikie Sherrill. Since Democrats retook the House last November, the world has come to know the progressive and divisive vision of four freshmen congresswomen known as “the squad.” But it was moderates — less well-known and laser-focused on common ground between Democrats and Republicans — who were responsible for flipping seats and winning back the House. Today, we meet a moderate Democrat who offers a competing vision of the party ahead of the 2020 election. Guests: Representative Mikie Sherrill, Democrat of New Jersey; Kate Zernike, a political reporter for The New York Times; and Lisa Chow and Rachel Quester, producers for “The Daily.” For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily.
