    Vegan Brain Health Q&A with Sophie Medlin

    Vegan Brain Health Q&A with Sophie Medlin

    This episode is in response to some recent news headlines describing some of the nutrients important for brain health that people could potentially be missing on a diet low in animal foods. I had quite a few questions come in about this and thought it would be good to do a Q&A episode to try to address some of your concerns.


    I was very grateful to be joined for this episode by Sophie Medlin. Sophie is a consultant dietitian with expertise in colorectal health, and former lecturer in Nutrition and Dietetics at Kings College London. She is a passionate advocate for evidence-based nutrition and works with the media to promote safe and accurate nutritional information.

    Understanding Anger

    Understanding Anger

    Anger is one of the most misunderstood and disparaged emotions. It is seen as a sign of immaturity or a lack of control, with people often confusing the emotional experience of anger with the physical act of violence. However, they are not the same thing. More than that, anger can be a driving force for tremendous good.


    In this episode I explain the psychological function of anger, how to recognise it, how to tolerate it and how to make the most of it. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
