    Introducing: A Slight Change of Plans, Apple's Best Show of the Year

    Introducing: A Slight Change of Plans, Apple's Best Show of the Year

    Pushkin is thrilled to announce that A Slight Change of Plans was named Apple Podcasts' Best Show of the Year! This week, we're sharing an episode with Solvable listeners. A Slight Change of Plans is all about understanding the science of change. That understanding, mixed with a healthy dose of compassion, has made the show a perfect antidote for the times we’re living in. Dr. Maya Shankar has interviewed celebrities like Tiffany Haddish and Kacey Musgraves. But she’s interviewed real-life inspirations, too. People who have dealt with cancer diagnoses or the loss of a loved one, and somehow managed to learn and grow from those hard experiences. 

    In this episode, Maya discusses a heartbreaking change she recently experienced in her personal life, while on her way to becoming a mom. Maya's producer Tyler interviews her about her own “Slight Change of Plans.”

HMAcain ,

Great concept, something to strive for

Instead of asking kids what they want to be when they grow up, some suggests to ask them what problems they want to solve instead. So far, this inspires me to think and focus on what is my solvable and what can i do to make it happen. Looking forward to more episodes.
