Mikkipedia is an exploration in all things health, well being, fitness, food and nutrition. I sit down with scientists, doctors, professors, practitioners and people who have a wealth of experience and have a conversation that takes a deep dive into their area of expertise. I love translating science into a language that people understand, so while some of the conversations will be pretty in-depth, you will come away with some practical tips that can be instigated into your everyday life. I hope you enjoy the show!

    This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Dr Anna Lembke about dopamine and addiction. We discuss what people get wrong about addiction, is it black and white (are all addictions bad), the potential for food to be addictive - and why this is a contentious issue. The potential for anything to be addictive. Who is most at risk of becoming addicted, the impact of the pandemic (both good and bad) and any other insights that Anna has that weren’t explored in her book that was published in 2021. A fab interview you are going to love.

    Dr. Anna Lembke received her undergraduate degree in Humanities from Yale University and her medical degree from Stanford University. She is currently Professor and Medical Director of Addiction Medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine. She is also Program Director of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Fellowship, Chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic, and a diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and the American Board of Addiction Medicine.

    In 2016, she published "Drug Dealer, MD – How Doctors Were Duped, Patients Got Hooked, and Why It’s So Hard to Stop" (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2016), highlighted in the New York Times as one of the top five books to read to understand the opioid epidemic (Zuger, 2018).

    Dr. Lembke appeared in the Netflix documentary The Social Dilemma, an unvarnished look at the impact of social media on our lives.

    Her latest book, "Dopamine Nation: Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence" (Dutton/Penguin Random House, August 2021) was an instant New York Times and Los Angeles Times bestseller and has been translated into 30 languages. It combines the neuroscience of addiction with the wisdom of recovery to explore the problem of compulsive overconsumption in a dopamine-overloaded world.

Brilliant Dr Mulgan interview

Mikki! Great interview, I could have listened for another few hours! I have one of his books….ashamed to admit I’ve not read it (I am a great buyer of books which get read eventually…..true!) but I’m starting on it this afternoon. I’ve taken away so much from this interview. You always ask the right questions, so many podcasters don’t do their research and it’s almost embarrassing listening to them……11/10 Mikki.

5+ stars!! ✨

Kia ora Mikki! Love your podcast. So many pearls of wisdom. Love that you have a mix of short episodes when there’s only time for a nibble, and longer, in depth sessions when there’s time to digest more. Your info is clear, evidence based and practical. Love your work 🤩 Ngā mihi nui Mikki!
