Jade Talks Stuff is a podcast about anything and everything. Each episode will focus on a specific topic aimed to enlighten you with random facts and fascinating information about the world around us and it’s people. My interests and experiences are varied, and through an addiction to news, I’ve amassed a wealth of knowledge about topics as diverse as sharks, the brain, aviation, water, and the artist Vincent Van Gogh, to name just a few. You may be familiar with my other podcast, Travelosophy which features life lessons learnt from travel, and Jade Talks Stuff is about everything else. If you have comments, then feel free to tweet me at jadekinsjackson. Thanks for listening.

Hello and welcome to the first episode in a series about brains; specifically how amazing they are. How often do you actually think about your brain and all it can do? What's weird if you think about it, this episode is essentially my brain talking about itself. There's much to discover and discuss when it comes to brains but understanding how brains work is fundamental to ensuring we live our best lives possible. I'm not sure exactly how any episodes there are going to be about the brain, but as I gather new research and information, I'll release sporadic episodes. Of course if you have something to add, please contact me. Here's all the links I mention in the podcast; 1) The Female Brain by Louann Brizendine 2) Evolve Your Brain by Dr Joe Dispenza 3) Dr Joe Dispenza website 3) ASMR Videos You Tube 4) Human Navigation Experiment 5) Music Memory Experiment in Berlin 6) UK Car Crash Victim Speaks French 7) Australian Car Crash Victim Speaks Mandarin 8)Jade Talks Poetry 9) Compass by Jade Jackson 10) Jade Talks Travel.

Loss and Love
Apologies I didn’t post a Jade Talks Stuff podcast episode last month. I lost two friends, who both lived overseas. Jennifer Olsen was 42 (Chicago), and Chris Dawson was 39 (Wellington). This episode explains my biggest fear, how I found out, and the story of Jen and I. I’m in the middle of recording a full Jade Talks Stuff Episode about Orcas, which you can expect within a day or so. Say hi on twitter @jadekinsjackson or head to my website https://jadejackson.com.au To view Jennifer’s memorial website, visit https://jenniferkolsen.wordpress.com If you’d like to support the podcast, then check out this page.

How is it possible to stop drinking alcohol? Contrary to popular beliefs, it’s entirely possible to live without alcohol. You can celebrate, watch sports, relax, be romantic and even enjoy New Years without an alcoholic drink. How? and more importantly why stop drinking alcohol? In this podcast episode I talk about how I have been almost six years alcohol-free (and counting) and the joys and benefits that has brought to my life. You don’t have to hit rock bottom to remove alcohol, you just have to have a desire to sleep better, enjoy longer weekends, and increased productivity in life. No gimmicks, no tricks and certainly no sales pitches. It’s all in the brain.
For a list of alcohol free activities, check my blog post here.
In this episode I mention a video ‘How to change your brain’ by Dr Joe Dispenza.
You can also find his books here. thanks in advance :-)
