63 - It's a Bummer with Conan O'Brien
We're back! After our little hiatus from the Free Feed we're excited to get going again...though (Bryan) might be a little TOO excited (Ronna's going to have to pull every string she has at the town council to fix that). Zoom scandals aside, we have reason to be excited. We've teased you for weeks about our huge guest for the new year, and we think we've delivered in a BIG way, excuse me. Joining us in The Carriage House this week is the one, the only, the legendary Conan O'Brien! Conan helps us give advice on bringing up hurt feelings with friends, dealing with a friend who has a questionable love life, being in love with your boss, and what, exactly, the world's best toilet paper is. Are you looking to pamper yourself in 2021? Join us on Patreon! In addition to an extra show every week, there are always other goodies thrown in as well. This week we'll be hosting a January Watch Party featuring some of the most famous (or infamous) figure skaters of all time. The grace! The beauty! The costumes! The scandal!

Reconnect With The Moment
Psychologist and meditation teacher Tara Brach felt too stressed and busy to spend time with her elderly mother - until she had a lightning moment of realisation. Why couldn't she enjoy living in the moment with her beloved parent? What fears and insecurities were preventing her from devoting time to her mom?Tara tells Dr Laurie Santos how she created RAIN - a mindfulness practise that allows us to Recognise, Allow, Investigate and Nurture our emotions. Once we consciously engage with those emotions, Tara argues, we can decide what is really important to us and our happiness. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Just Like Us
Are stars just like us? After a conversation with Busy Philipps… you will 100% think so. Hers is a story of finding and owning your weirdness, using revenge as a fuel source to drive you to success, and what to do when you get what you want and it doesn’t feel the way you thought it would. After we recorded and mixed this episode, Busy announced on her podcast that her child Birdie uses they/them pronouns.Update 1/5: Speaking of how we’re all just doing our best… we had an oops this episode. The original version stated that Busy didn’t have a story credit when “Blades of Glory” first came out. That was incorrect. The good news is, you can read all about that and the other stories Busy references in the episode in her memoir, “This Will Only Hurt A Little” (which Nora highly recommends).Our twice-monthly newsletter features behind-the-scenes content, previews of upcoming episodes and more.

The Machine That Made the Vaccine
A year ago, none of us would believe that mRNA vaccines would be a household name. And yet here we are, at the end of 2020, counting the days towards a vaccine that could not just save lives but help bring us back into a world that feels “normal” again. In this special episode, airing the day the FDA authorized the vaccine for emergency use, Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel tells the story of not just the vaccine’s development, but the machine that made the vaccine: the platform, the technology, and the moves behind the vaccine’s development. This episode of Bio Eats World takes us from a world of pipette and lab benches to a world of industrial robots making medicines: We used to grow our vaccines, now we can “print” them, getting them to patients faster and more efficiently than ever before. In conversation with a16z general partner Jorge Conde and Bio Eats World host Hanne Winarsky, Bancel describes the exact moment he realized they might actually be able to make a vaccine for Covid-19; what happened next to go from pathogen to design; how this new technology that uses mRNA works (in a chocolate mousse metaphor!), and what makes it different from “old” vaccines; and how to think about managing both innovation and speed in this world. Why is this such a fundamental shift in the world of drug development? And where will this technology go next?
