Unlonely Planet: The Power of Friendships
When Jillian Richardson moved to New York City, she realized what it meant to be truly lonely for the first time.When Jillian Richardson moved to New York City, she realized what it meant to be truly lonely for the first time. She had no consistent community - people who would wonder where I was if I didn't show up. Jillian was disconnected. Turns out, loneliness is a huge issue in the United States. The average American only has one close friend, and 75% of people are not satisfied with their friendships. The planet is filled with people who feel like they don't matter. That's pretty bleak, right? Yet this feeling is rooted in something even deeper and more primal than a need for conversation. What we really desire is intimacy, and to feel like we belong. In order to make that happen, we need to fundamentally change our social lives. Jillian Richardson is a coach, bestselling author, and connection expert. She’s also the founder of The Joy List, a weekly newsletter of community-centered events in NYC. Jillian helps people learn the skills to connect more deeply to themselves and others, and has inspired thousands through her workshops, interviews, and public speaking engagements. Jillian loves everything under the umbrella of connection and dives into topics from friendship to dating and spirituality. She joins Dr. Pam to talk about creating true, lasting connections in our modern world, finding your people, and her book Unlonely Planet: How Healthy Congregations Can Change the World.

Hit Pause and Listen: The Powerful Science of Sound
Sound is all around us but because we live in a visually biased world, we have lost track of how important sound is.Sound is all around us but because we live in a visually biased world, we have lost track of how important sound is. That is the mission behind Dr. Nina Kraus' work, to remind us of the power of sound. She says scientists have trouble communicating their research to the masses, and she wants to help us fully understand the sonic world we live in. Nina Kraus, Ph.D., is a scientist, inventor, and amateur musician who studies the biology of auditory learning. She began her career measuring responses from single auditory neurons and was one of the first to show that the adult nervous system has the potential for reorganization following learning; these insights in basic biology galvanized her to investigate auditory learning in humans. In her latest book In Of Sound Mind, Dr.Kraus examines the partnership of sound and brain, showing for the first time that the processing of sound drives many of the brain's core functions. Kraus does on to explore what goes on in our brains when we hear a word--or a chord, or a meow, or a screech.

But now, in The Anatomy of Anxiety acclaimed psychiatrist, Dr. Ellen Vora offers nothing less than a paradigm shift in the way we understand anxiety and mental health. Dr. Vora suggests that the symptoms of anxiety are frequently the result of physical imbalance—that is, anxiety is a whole-body condition, not simply a brain condition. More than 40 million Americans are suffering from anxiety in any given year (a number that has only increased as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic), add to that the woeful lack of accessibility and affordability of mental health, anxiety is everywhere. We'll hear about false anxiety vs true anxiety, managing the feelings that come up during meditation and even talk about wrapping our heads around death.

What she doesn’t expect is that she’ll end up in the hospital, examining close-up the way our cells listen to loneliness.

The End of Craving: Recovering the Lost Wisdom of Eating Well
One of the oldest and most controversial debates of our time centers on what foods will lead to slim, healthy lives.One of the oldest and most controversial debates of our time centers on what foods will lead to slim, healthy lives. Americans have waged national campaigns against fat and carbohydrates, tried every conceivable diet, and taken multivitamins in an attempt to satiate our hunger. And yet all our attempts continually fail us, why? Because we’ve left our brains out of the equation. In his latest book The End of Craving: Recovering the Lost Wisdom of Eating Well, Mark Schatzker explores why Americans crave more but enjoy less compared to other nations, and how we can get back to a more healthful and pleasurable way of eating. Schatzker traces the origin of our dysfunctional relationship with food to the turn of the last century when a mysterious pandemic called pellagra was raging simultaneously in the American South and the north of Italy, food addiction, binge eating, and real food vs fortified food. Mark Schatzker is the author of The End of Craving, The Dorito Effect, and Steak. He is a writer in residence at the Modern Diet and Physiology Research Center, which is affiliated with Yale University, living in Toronto.
