    Of Human Kindness: What Shakespeare Teaches Us About Empathy

    Show Guest: Paula Marantz Cohen

    An award-winning scholar and teacher explores how Shakespeare’s greatest characters were built on a learned sense of empathy.

    While discussing Shakespeare’s plays in her university classroom, Paula Marantz Cohen discovered that they unlocked a surprising sense of compassion in both herself and her students. In this short and illuminating book, she shows how Shakespeare’s genius lay in his ability to arouse empathy, even when his characters exist in alien contexts and behave in reprehensible ways.

    Cohen takes her readers through a selection of Shakespeare’s most famous plays, including Hamlet, Othello,King Lear, and The Merchant of Venice, to demonstrate the ways in which Shakespeare thought deeply and clearly about how we treat “the other.” She argues that only through close reading of Shakespeare can we fully appreciate his empathetic responses to race, class, gender, and age. Wise, eloquent, and thoughtful, this book is a forceful argument for literature’s power to champion what is best in us.

    The Embodied Mind: Understanding the Mysteries of Cellular Memory, Consciousness, and Our Bodies

    Show Guest: Dr. Thomas R. Verny

    A breakthrough book that promises to shift our understanding of the mind-brain connection and reveal the mind's relationship with our bodies. Is the mind within the brain? Dr. Thomas Verny says this is a very limiting belief. Let's dive in! We understand the workings of the human body well enough, right? Muscles interact with bones to move us, as the heart responds to hormones secreted by the brain, all the way down to the inner workings of every cell. No one component can work alone. In light of this, why is it the accepted understanding that the physical phenomenon of the mind is attributed only to the brain?

    In The Embodied Mind, internationally renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas R. Verny sets out to redefine our concept of the mind and consciousness. He brilliantly compiles new research that points to the mind’s ties to every part of the body.

    The Embodied Mind collects disparate findings from many fields of science in order to illustrate the mounting evidence that somatic cells, not just neural cells, store memory, inform genetic coding, and adapt to environmental changes—all behaviors that contribute to the conscious mind. The Embodied Mind shows how intelligence and consciousness—traits traditionally attributed to the brain alone—also permeate our entire being. Bodily cells and tissues use the same molecular mechanisms for memory as our brain, making our minds more fluid and adaptable than we could have ever imagined!

    Numbskull

    Numbskull

    In this very deliberately crafted memoir, Dr. Bill Torbert goes directly into his teaching roots. Even as he speaks of his own experiences, he peppers in the issues of the day, and how society can indeed awaken to the deeper meaning of itself, one individual at a time. Within the pages of Numbskull in the Theatre of Inquiry: Transforming Self, Friends, Organizations, and Social Science the audience will find exactly that.

    An anti-heroic work of monumental magnitude, Numbskull recounts Dr. Tobert’s dramatic early life in Europe and the US, He recounts for us how he gradually learned, from the experiences of his own leadership efforts, a theory of learning from experience. From his experiences, he also learned a theory of organizational transformation, culminating in ‘liberating disciplines’ that help others learn to transform from their own experiences.

    Dr. Tolbert formulated a developmental theory of social science that culminates in the paradigm of Collaborative Developmental Action Inquiry (CDAI) that interweaves first-, second-, and third-person research and practice to offer more depth and perspective.

    Escaping Gravity: My Quest to Transform NASA and Launch a New Space Age
    Show Guest: Lori Garver

    Escaping Gravity is former NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver's first-hand account of how a handful of revolutionaries managed to outmaneuver the system of political patronage and bureaucracy that threatened the space agency and the future of human spaceflight.

    The success of Elon Musk's SpaceX, Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin, Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic, and countless other commercial space efforts, was preceded by decades of work by a group of people Garver calls space pirates. Escaping Gravity is the story of how the battle of the space billionaires began, and why that matters, penned by one of the key leaders who brought the competition to fruition.

    Garver explains how her crusade to transform NASA put her in the crosshairs of the established, powerful interests who viewed her as a threat to the system that has centralized and controlled power since the 1950s.

    Including previously unpublished information, conversations, and insights on the epic battles that have transitioned space access to private interests for a fraction of the cost of previous NASA programs, Escaping Gravity offers a blueprint for how to drive productive and meaningful government change.

LOVE IT. I really like the quality of the guests, the topics, the tempo, mostly everything. The only thing I dont like is how underrated AFTF is. I really enjoy how the host doesnt make the show about himself and how he is geuinely interested in both the gust and the topic at hand, it's like a conversation rather than an interview. highly recommend. Keep up the good work Allen.
