    Continuing the trend of a bonus episode in the middle of the month. This month I chatted with Professor Sophie Scott CBE. Sophie is a neuroscientist working at University College London. She's a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences, has presented the Royal Institutions Christmas Lectures and has been on multiple TV and Radio programs over the years talking about the neuroscience of laughter. I hope you enjoy what she has to say.

    Episode 190: Conflict Avoidance

    Avoiding conflict can influence the big things in life as well as the small things. It's why people split up over text rather than actually deal with a relationship problem face to face. And if you've ever had a huge sense of relief if you ring someone about a problem and their phone goes to voicemail, you'll know what I mean.

    Episode 189: Energy Levels

    Episode 189: Energy Levels

    With some enthusiasm we can go from dragging our feet and saying how tired we are to suddenly being alert and awake. But whether it's about scripting a podcast episode or going for a run, it's really easy to say to ourselves "I don't feel like it" and if your energy levels have dropped it's definitely worth looking into why.

An uplifting reality check.

Richard is so Normal. And I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Everywhere we are surrounded by fakery and agendas. Richard tells it like it is, layered with insight and knowledge, to leave you feeling a little more empowered. I’m just about to become a patron. Thank you so much Richard for sharing what is quite obviously your calling.

Really good but..

Great podcast. However I feel really uncomfortable with his mentions of religion and have adjusted my review. Putting it alongside a belief in aliens doesn’t sit right with me personally and belittles important aspects of many lives.
In addition, there are many studies which show the positive impact religion, belief, and church can have.. This content overlooks the human need of communities to create Gods throughout history (Which is not the same as extremism or other negative forms of religious activity). At best I don’t feel this is an unbiased or wholly well informed look at mental health. If you don’t fully understand something (ie religion) it’s best not to mention it, surely?
I’m not entirely sure where I sit with my faith but I think religious people would find the podcast inappropriate, and others may realise it’s not completely well researched in all aspects Richard discusses.

Great Podcasts

I’ve recently discovered these Podcasts and everyone has been interesting and thought provoking. Many also have practical tips that helps put the advice into action which is really useful.
Please could you do a podcast on letting go.
Many thanks :)
