The Duality of Health for People and the Planet
We often have serious conversations about the future of global warming as well as global health crises, but it is not as often that these two topics are connected in discussion. In fact, taking care of our planet is crucial for the wellbeing of billions; environmental factors like availability of clean water, consequences of industrial agriculture, and geopolitical conflicts that affect access to important resources all have a dramatic impact on health outcomes, especially in underprivileged areas. Today, we had a fascinating discussion with Gil Bashe on the importance of upcoming technologies in solving these problems, and we'd love for you to tune in and hear about younger generations' power to take control of the future of our health and the planet's health.

This is Your Brain on Food ft. Dr. Waller
We all know that eating food is crucial for our survival, but this basic principle of life isn't as simple as it may seem upon first glance. With more food options to choose than ever and often drastically conflicting nutrition advice from various sources, simply deciding what to eat can feel really overbearing at times. Today, we sat down with Dr. TJ Waller to discuss his research in disordered eating and neurodegeneration, which explores the mind-body connection from the perspective of food. Join us in a powerful conversation to investigate how food impacts the performance of the brain, understand why diet advice shouldn't be one-size-fits-all, and debunk harmful myths that perpetuate modern diet culture!

This is Your Brain on Stress ft. Dr. Romie
As we get older and more responsibilities pile onto our to-do list, it's inevitable that our stress levels rise. Though we know stress isn't good for us in the long term, it has become so ingrained in our everyday lives and work culture that it is a new norm. Nevertheless, it is important to combat such societal standards as stress can actually cause a whole host of medical problems and catch up to us in the form of burnout. In this episode, we sat down to talk with Dr. Romie, a brain doctor, Chief Wellness Officer at Evolution Hospitality, keynote speaker, and mindful leadership expert.
