The course focuses on being mindful of when you are hooked and then trying to do something different to break the bad habitual reactions. Chodron touches on the subject of groundlessness and how tragedies in life can often lead us into opening our heart instead of shutting down. She tells the story of her experiences on September 11th in which she was in a meditation retreat and how the reactions to such a tragedy on a societal level frequently mirror the reactions to life's catastrophes on a personal level. Enjoy this introductory talk from one of Pema Chodron's amazing retreats.

3 Neuroscience Lectures on Popular Brain Myths

Last week we featured 70 Free Lectures from The Great Courses for back to school. Today we wanted to highlight three of those free lectures from the course Brain Myths Exploded: Lessons from Neuroscience taught by Professor Indre Viskontas, Ph.D. In these lectures Dr. Viskontas provides many answers to three popular questions in neuroscience as she separates fact, myth, and things we just don't know yet in neuroscience. The course Brain Myths Exploded: Lessons from Neuroscience and over 300 other courses can be accessed with a subscription to The Great Courses Plus. We highly recommend all three of these free lectures:

1. Can Certain Foods Make You Smarter?

Can certain foods make you smarter? That's the question directly addressed in this lecture from the course Brain Myths Exploded: Lessons from Neuroscience taught by Professor Indre Viskontas, Ph.D. She addresses the difficulty with conducting good neuroscience studies on the effects of food because there is not much profit to made from studying foods like blueberries that can't be patented. But Professor Viskontas points to some studies done around fish oil, anti-oxidant foods, and supplements and the often scant evidence or mixed results that these studies have produced in regards to cognitive improvement. She does point out that caffeine, exercise, and even fasting might aid in our cognitive abilities. She explodes the myth of sugar making kids crazy and also discusses the effects of popular drugs like Adderall and Ritalin for kids with ADHD. After decades of study, Professor Viskontas says we aren't that far from the common sense wisdom that was already known, that good nutrition, a healthy diet, and exercise are good for mental performance.

2. Can Adult Brains Change for the Better?

Hear about the exciting new science of adult neurogenesis, which is the process by which new neurons are generated in the adult brain. Professor Indre Viskontas, Ph.D. explains that for many years in neuroscience, scientists thought once the adult brain was fully developed that adults could not grow new neurons. But recent science has proven that new development is possible, especially in the hippocampus of the brain which is associated with memory. Dr. Viskontas also examines some of the ways in which brain power can be boosted and how exercise, food, and pills affect the brain. Learn how you can start growing new neurons today!

3. Does Technology Make You Stupid?

It is frequently suggested that technology is making people more stupid, but in this lecture from The Great Courses, Professor Indre Viskontas, Ph.D. takes a more nuanced view of what technology might be doing to our intelligence and our ability to pay attention. This 30-minute lecture is from her course Brain Myths Exploded: Lessons from Neuroscience and she takes on many of the common myths involving smartphones, social media, and computers. She covers a lot of ground in this lecture and cites many recent studies that have dealt with how these new technologies are transforming our world and our minds.

And if you like Dr. Viskontas, you might want to check out the podcast she hosts with Kishore Hari:

Inquiring Minds Podcast

Listen to the Inquiring Minds Podcast featuring thought leaders on a wide variety of topics. Indre Viskontas & Kishore Hari make great hosts as they start off the podcast discussing some recent news or studies they found fascinating. Then they interview their guest and they explore "the place where science, politics, and society collide". Hear from Stephen Dubner on Freakonomics, Adam Rogers on the science of booze, Traci Mann giving unconventional findings on the science of weight loss, Dr. Norman Doidge on brain plasticity, and many other leading thinkers such as Adam Savage, William Gibson, Steven Johnson, Steven Pinker, Naomi Klein, Al Gore, John Oliver, Jared Diamond, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michael Pollan, and many more. This series has over 90 podcast episodes and they're all on the feed. It's an excellent podcast that will introduce you to a wide variety of subjects.

5 Free Tony Robbins Audio Books on Spotify

You can now listen to five free Tony Robbins audio books through Spotify. These audio programs on CD run $9.99 per program on Tony's website, but with a Spotify account you can now listen to them all for free. They cover the areas of wealth, time, relationship, career, and goals. We'll describe each program below. We'll start with his program The Edge: The Power to Change Your Life Now.

1. The Edge: The Power to Change Your Life Now

In The Edge, self-help legend Tony Robbins describes how he can help anyone listening transform every area of their life where it matters most. Whether it be finding more energy when you wake up in the morning, learning how to respond to negative events & limiting beliefs, improving your finances, or finding your sense of purpose in life, this introductory series delivers a jolt to the system that only Tony can deliver. What's notable about Robbins' style is not just his enthusiasm, but his commitment to providing usable tools, modeled upon years of observing the world's most successful people, that you can use to make your own life a work of art. Get moving, get happy, and get started right here!

2. Time of Your Life

Much more than a time management seminar, Tony Robbins' Time of Your Life audio program looks deeper into what time really is. Robbins posits that time is emotion, and that we've all experienced time flying by as well as time slowed down according to our emotional states. Before we can attempt to manage our time effectively, we need to first decide what to focus on. Once we focus on the specific results we want and the ultimate purpose we are passionate about, Tony teaches how to set forth a massive action plan to achieve our goals and have the time of our lives!

3. Career: Find Your True Gift

In this audio program Tony Robbins points out many things one should consider when they're looking for a job or a career. The majority of this audio program consists of an interview that Tony conducted with self-help author Stephen R. Covey, who is the author of the mega-bestselling book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Covey gets to the heart of his 7 habits pointing out career & life advice along the way. The advice will hopefully help you find meaning in your own work, no matter what stage of your career you are in.

4. Love and Passion

In this introductory audio program, life coach and self development guru Tony Robbins works through a pragmatic approach to selecting and connecting with your soul mate. As Robbins stresses at the beginning, chemistry is important, but it doesn't always make for a long-lasting partnership. In the lecture portion of the program, he walks listeners through the elementary ingredients that go into lasting love, including shared goals, playfulness, trust, respect, and perhaps most important, communication.

5. Financial Freedom

In this one hour audio program, Tony Robbins teaches that before we set out to get "rich" we need to define what wealth is for us. While earning lots of money can be beneficial, Tony has seen in his own life and in the lives of successful people that he has coached that being rich isn't the same as being wealthy if you're sacrificing other aspects of your life for making money. He points out several different types of wealth including emotional wealth, time, relationships, purpose, and more. Tony argues that only when we've achieved wealth in all of these areas can we truly achieve financial freedom.

Please Note: In order to listen to these audio programs you'll need a free Spotify account. You can listen for free with occasional ads and they also have Spotify software for easier listening on your computer. If you want to listen ad-free and on smart phone and you love music as well, we can't recommend Spotify Premium highly enough.

And you can browse over 50 audio books, audio & video courses, podcasts, and videos from motivational superstar Tony Robbins right here on LearnOutLoud.com:

For all of our offering from the great author H.G. Wells, browse his author page here:

H.G. Wells Audio Books & Short Stories

Also for an introduction to the science fiction of H.G. Wells, check out this lecture from The Great Courses:

H.G. Wells and Utopian Science Fiction

This lecture is part of a course from The Great Courses called Great Utopian and Dystopian Works of Literature taught by Professor Pamela Bedore, Ph.D.. This course and over 300 other courses can be accessed with a subscription to The Great Courses Plus.

The final decades of the 19th century saw the birth and development of science fiction as a new literary genre, with the concept of utopia in particular being a favorite subject of early writers. In this free Great Course lecture, Literature Professor Pamela Bedore focuses on two books by science fiction forefather H.G. Wells that ask the question: is imagining a utopia inherently a part of science fiction? Using both Wells' classic The Time Machine and a lesser known work called A Modern Utopia as her texts, Professor Bedore demonstrates how science fiction can be utilized to explore how current societies might evolve if certain trends predominate, leading to interesting utopian futures that sometimes look positive on the surface, but often come with hidden costs.

For more science fiction from H.G. Wells try out The War of the Worlds:

On October 30, 1938, Orson Welles directed and narrated his War of the Worlds radio drama. In 1938, the realistic news bulletins that began the broadcast suggested to many listeners that an actual alien invasion by Martians was currently in progress. Listen to this dramatization of the most famous alien-invasion story of all time. This broadcast is available on YouTube through the Newseum (interactive museum of news and journalism) channel.

The War of the Worlds (1938 Radio Broadcast)
