Why We Are Wrong About So Much & How to Reduce Your Anxiety in an Anxious World

Why is it that your stomach growls at exactly the wrong time? When you are taking a test in school or during a meeting when the room is quiet and all of a sudden your stomach starts making all those weird little noises. This episode begins with an explanation as to why that happens and how to prevent it.

We all like to think we know what we are talking about – and yet so often we don’t. Human beings have a tendency to believe things that are not true – particularly if what we believe supports our view of the world. And what is so fascinating is we tend to believe things are actually worse than what the truth suggests. When you understand why and how this happens, you can protect yourself from other people’s deception. Joining me to discuss this strange human quirk is Bobby Duffy, a professor of public policy at King’s College in London and author of the book Why We’re Wrong About Nearly Everything (

The afternoon slump hits most of us around 3 pm. And while a cup of coffee might lift you up a bit – there is actually a way to prevent yourself from getting it – or at least minimize that late day slump. Listen and I’ll explain a simple yet effective technique.

So how do you turn down the dial on anxiety and worry? That’s what Olivia Remes is here to discuss. Olivia is an anxiety researcher at the University of Cambridge in London. Her writing has appeared in several major publications and she posts a lot of information on the topic on Twitter. (@OliviaRoxann). She offers some simple ways to ease your anxiety and find more joy in life.

How accurate is Wikipedia? If you go to one of their articles, how likely is it to be accurate and objective. This episode begins with some surprising fats about Wikipedia and its accuracy.

People lie. In fact everyone lies. Many times those lies are small and inconsequential – other times they are a very big deal. Pamela Myers is one of the leading experts on lies and deception and she joins me to take us on a journey into how deception works, how to identify it and how to get people to tell the truth. Pamela Myers is author of the book Liespotting ( and you can her her TED talk at

If a store posts a sign that says “You Break It You Buy It” can they actually enforce that? Accidents happen – so how can you be forced to pay for something just because it slipped or because you happened to walk by it when it fell and broke? Listen and find out what the law says.

The world is getting a lot louder. And all that noise is taking a toll on you – even if you don’t really notice it. Listen to some fascinating insight on what noise does to you physically and psychologically from Mathias Basner. He is a professor of psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania and an expert on how noise affects sleep and health.
