    Prof Sander Begeer - the wisdom of uncertainty in autistic people

    Prof Sander Begeer - the wisdom of uncertainty in autistic people

    Does an autistic brain process uncertainty differently? Is the neurotypical blind confidence with uncertainty the real mystery? Is the debate about "disorder" vs "superpower" getting too polarized?
    We haven't found out, but we gave it a good try.

    Magali De Reu - In welke mate bepaalt onze hersenwerking wie of wat we zijn?

    Magali De Reu - In welke mate bepaalt onze hersenwerking wie of wat we zijn?

    Ik heb het met Magali De Reu over vervelende mensen, namelijk mensen met autisme en ADHD. Ons divergent brein leidt ons in diepe gesprekken van een concrete definitie van autisme naar trauma en zelfs psychedelica! Meer: 20angles.com en magalidereu.be

    Griet Vandermassen - worden we vanuit evolutionair perspectief niet knettergek van deze hypermoderne wereld?

    Griet Vandermassen - worden we vanuit evolutionair perspectief niet knettergek van deze hypermoderne wereld?

    We hebben het over lightweight topics zoals:
    - zijn we afgestemd op deze hypermoderne wereld?
    - waren autisten goeie oermensen geweest?
    - waarom is er geen selectiedruk geweest op autisme?
    - wat doet kinderen naar de crèche sturen met onze hechting?
    - heeft filosofie, en deze podcast, uberhaupt zin?
    - burnout, depressie en of ongelukkig zijn evolutionair zijn waarde kende?
    - kan evolutie ons helpen relativeren?
    - is religie een evolutionair interessante bias geweest?
    Ahja, en ook over tijdreizen, vraag me niet waarom..

    Nathalie Nahai - Slaves of our limited (but fascinating) mind?

    Nathalie Nahai - Slaves of our limited (but fascinating) mind?

    Had yet another fascinating conversation about life's most difficult questions with Nathalie Nahai. She was so kind to throw some of these horrible existential questions back to me (shame on her), but that resulted in a fluent and divergent talk.
    If you want to find out if you are running around life (and the virtual world) like a zombie, or if you are tech companies' b*ch, this one is for you.
    We also talked about happiness, whatever that is, and little things you can do to condition your mind for the better.
    Sadly we did not find any conclusive answer about the meaning of life, although I am still satisfied with "42".
    Nathalie is an expert when it comes to the psychology on the interwebs, and she has written an excellent book about it (which she even gifted to me, how nice). She also is the host of "The Hive Podcast" which investigates our relationship with technology (and has a way better website than mine).

    Prof Sheldon Solomon (part 2) - Lessons from death about Covid-19, fundamentalism, racism, sustainability and other lightweight topics

    Second part of the interview where we investigate how the awareness of death influences our erratic behavior and can make us both better or worse human beings..
    Prof. Sheldon Solomon is a social psychologist at Skidmore College, and his research is exactly on this topic.
    In the podcast, I investigate the question"who or what are we?" with 20 different people, encouraging you to think on things yourself.
