    How to Save The Planet at Breakfast with Jonathan Safran Foer

    How to Save The Planet at Breakfast with Jonathan Safran Foer

    Today I speak with author and activist Jonathan Safran Foer about the current pandemic, how he is coping and an inconvenient problem that dwarfs the impact of Covid. The big C – Climate.


    Jonathan is the author of three award-winning and internationally best-selling novels. He won The Guardian Book Prize for his debut novel, was included in Granta’s “Best of Young American Novelists” issue as well as The New Yorker’s“20 under 40” list of the best young writers in the US; and his books are published in over 30 languages


    And I know what you’re thinking. Yes it’s important. Yes I know I should be doing more. And no I’m not doing enough. It’s too hard.


    In today's espisode we talk about:
    - How the actions of ordinary people as a collective can have huge impacts
    - Not to rely on the government for action and how we can act
    - The simplest most effective solution is diet
    - How we are all hypocrites and a layer of realism is useful
    - Why climate change and global warming has a branding problem


    Jonathan Safran Foer's book, We Are The Weather, is out now, definitely do go and check it out. Along with another one of Jonathan's books - Eating Animals, it’s certainly one of my must reads for anybody interested in nutrition and how food choices impact the environment.

    The Doctor’s Kitchen LIVE Podcast: Opportunities for Growth Post Pandemic (with a Live Q&A Session)

    The Doctor’s Kitchen LIVE Podcast: Opportunities for Growth Post Pandemic (with a Live Q&A Session)

    Welcome to a special episode of The Doctor's Kitchen Podcast - LIVE!


    Today’s podcast was filmed recently on Zoom with a live audience of 20 people online - what a great experience and a real pleasure to connect with those in the audience.


    Earlier this year, I introduced the idea of what I wanted to create as an immersive Doctor’s Kitchen experience - a supper club event with 3 guest interviews and an opportunity for those attending to ask live questions.


    The initial idea revolved around 3 core themes: EAT, MOTIVATE & INSPIRE. Unfortunately, we had to postpone the supper club event for obvious reasons - so I thought instead that I would reflect on a few events of the last couple of months as well as giving an opportunity to those in the audience of the live podcast to ask me anything.


    Some of the key topics I talk about today include:
    - How we cultivate a community that is able to look after itself effortlessly?
    - How can we grow from this tragic experience?
    - The renewed realisation of the wider determinants of health, namely community, connection and purpose.
    - Financial, Environmental and Societal impacts on healthy lifestyles and the responsibility of our government to enhance the resilience of our population


    I also pose the opportunity of this current situation as a moment to rethink the immediacy of other looming catastrophes, namely the environment and microbial resistance. And I close with a short discussion on rethinking our food landscape to appreciate the addictive nature of processed foods and the importance of nutritional medicine.
     
    I do hope that you find this episode informative and useful at this time, and I would really love your feedback on the episodes that we are sharing here.  Let me know on our Instagram, Facebook & Twitter pages.

    Creating Accidental Activists to Improve Health in a Post Pandemic World with George Monbiot

    Creating Accidental Activists to Improve Health in a Post Pandemic World with George Monbiot

    Today on the podcast I welcome along George Monbiot - who is is an author, Guardian columnist and environmental campaigner.


    George cowrote the concept album Breaking the Spell of Loneliness with musician Ewan McLennan; and has made a number of viral videos. One of them, adapted from his 2013 TED talk, How Wolves Change Rivers, has been viewed on YouTube over 40m times. Another, on Natural Climate Solutions, that he co-presented with Greta Thunberg, has been watched over 50m times.


    As we witness an improvement in the crisis and anticipate the relaxation of social distancing, I wanted to talk about the opportunities to learn and reform our political systems that globally have been woefully unprepared and slow to respond.


    As we try to recuperate the losses both emotionally, physically and financially I’m trying to cultivate the opinions of thinkers from around the world who have long documented the unfolding crises in society that have now spectacularly revealed themselves to us.


    In this episode, we talk about:


    - How to harness intrinsic human values of kindness to foster better wellbeing in society
    - How cooperation and altruism is hardwired in our neurobiology
    - The evolution of humans would have required community and kindness to survive rather than the prevailing narrative of individualism and inequality
    - Neoliberalism in politics and how we have evolved over the 20th and 21st century
    - The impact of immersing ourselves in a virtual world
    - How we address alienation and loneliness, which are the defining conditions of our time.
    - The rise in social initiatives and Accidental activists
    - What will we reward in a post pandemic era? Those with material wealth and social influence or those who seek to build community and foster relationships?
    - Is this an opportunity to build a doughnut economy?
    - Big Organising in the wake of the Pandemic

    How to Heal a Moral Injury – Helping Healthcare Workers Heal Mental Wounds in the Aftermath of Coronavirus with Dr Dominic Murphy

    How to Heal a Moral Injury – Helping Healthcare Workers Heal Mental Wounds in the Aftermath of Coronavirus with Dr Dominic Murphy

    In today’s episode I talk to Head of Research at Combat Stress, Dr Dominic Murphy. 


    Combat Stress are the UKs leading charity for veterans' mental health. 


    For a century they have been helping former servicemen and women deal with issues like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression. Today they provide specialist treatment and support for veterans from every service and conflict to give them hope and a future.


    I think it would be a pragmatic choice to start discussing the mental implications of COVID- 19 on healthcare workers that have not only witnessed events but may have been involved in some huge decisions that challenge our moral code.


    I'm sure that you will find our discussion today really interesting and thought provoking.


    On the podcast, we talk about:


    - Dominic’s work as a Clinical Psychologist and PTSD with war veterans
    - The extent of PTSD and predisposing factors
    - What is a moral injury?
    - The relationship between moral injury and PTSD
    - Why look at moral injury - why do some people not respond well to gold standard treatments for PTSD
    - What are we doing in the UK to explore moral injury
    - Is moral injury relevant during the current COVID-19 crisis?
    - Preventative measures with food, alcohol and exercise
    - The prevalence of PTSD before the pandemic and what needs to change in both the culture of medicine and access to care
     
    Please do be sure to check out the Combat Stress Website where they have some fantastic resources and support available and also look up their social media pages (links below)


    You'll also find links on The Doctor's Kitchen Website to the papers that Dominic and I discussed on the podcast.

    Miracles in Medicine? What We Can Learn About the Science of Spontaneous Remission with Dr Jeffrey Rediger

    Miracles in Medicine? What We Can Learn About the Science of Spontaneous Remission with Dr Jeffrey Rediger

    In today's podcast I speak with Dr Jeffrey Rediger where we talk about spontaneous remissions or ‘medical miracles’ that he has been studying for over 15 years.


    Dr Jeffrey Rediger is an Instructor in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Medical Director for the McLean SouthEast Adult Psychiatric Programs.


    He has a Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary and publishes in the fields of medicine, psychiatry and spirituality. 


    He has now released his first book - Cured - the remarkable science and stories of spontaneous healing and recovery.
    Conventionally ignored by the scientific literature as outliers, anomalies or likely a result of misdiagnosis, Dr Jeffrey decided to dedicate a large part of his career studying these cases in the hope of trying to find out if there is anything we could learn from them. What he revealed is a fascinating collection of stories that has changed his thinking on medicine and how we practice. 
    It could be the revolution in medicine many patients and doctors are crying out for. Rather than adding legitimacy to those trying to exploit people's hope and belief, Dr Jeffrey sees a new way of examining unusual cases of remission through the lens of science.
     
    On our talk today we cover the following:
    - The placebo effect 
    - How belief plays into remission
    - Putting the body into a “Healing Mode”
    - Why love, compassion and kindness are key to health and longevity
    - Negativity bias
    - The accidents of biology and how they lead to the secrets of health
    - Flexing your Vagus Nerve
    - The 4 pillars of healing - Immunity, Stress, Identity, Nutrition
     
    Please do be sure to check out Jeff Rediger's book - Cured (Penguin, 2020) - released this year and available through most good bookstores or online booksellers.

    COVID-19 pt 4: Is Basic Income the Answer to Financial and Physical Wellbeing After COVID? With Professor Guy Standing

    COVID-19 pt 4: Is Basic Income the Answer to Financial and Physical Wellbeing After COVID? With Professor Guy Standing

    In this weeks podcast I speak with Professor Guy Standing. A professorial research associate and former professor at SOAS University of London and world expert on Universal basic Income.


    He is also a co-founder and current co-president of the Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN), an international non-governmental organization that promotes basic income as a right.


    In light of the evolving pandemic I wanted to shift the conversation from reacting to the current scenario, to considering what opportunities there are to grow from this.


    In the same way the British public and government created a universal healthcare system in the wake of WWII, perhaps our current scenario provides the foundation for even more radical thinking.


    Today we discuss Basic Income as a measure that could alleviate societal suffering that started years before the pandemic, but has been extenuated and magnified as a result of the virus.


    What we understand more than ever is the inequality within our communities, the effects of which will last far beyond the closure of this health crisis and will continue unless we think more carefully and imaginatively about how we structure our society.


    We talk through the following:
    - Basic constructs of what Universal Basic Income means
    - The ethical and economic arguments for Basic Income
    - Ideas and culture shifts in politics and society that need to be in place for basic income to work
    - Professor Standing's experiences with instituting Basic Income in communities across the world
     
    I hope that this situation has made more of us think more compassionately and kindly toward our neighbours both internationally as well as nationally and that this podcast ignites a different way of thinking even if you do not agree with the notion of Basic income.
    Please do be sure to check out Professor Standings book - Battling Eight Giants: Basic Income Now (Bloomsbury, 2020) - released this year and available through most good bookstores or online booksellers.
