    Find Your Team with Rex Chapman, from Ways to Win

Craig talks with prominent athletes, business leaders, and celebrities, who reveal insights that made them into the leaders they are today. Like President Obama, who shared how he deals with pressure by projecting confidence, believing in your team, and taking criticism.
    In this episode, Kentucky basketball legend and former NBA star Rex Chapman discusses his new memoir, It's Hard for Me to Live with Me. You'll hear how he overcame the rockiest period in his personal and professional life: His battle with addiction, depression, and anxiety. At the end of the day, says Rex, whether in sports or in life, it’s all about the teammates you surround yourself with. Rex also talks about filling the void the end of his playing career created, and gives a listener advice for dealing with people who are resistant to change.

    Free Will is a Lie | Robert Sapolsky

    What if everything you think about free will is an illusion? Behavioral scientist Robert Sapolsky makes a provocative case that free will is largely fiction.
    Drawing from his book, Determined: A Science of Life Without Free Will, he deconstructs the idea through neurobiology, genetics, and anthropology. Sapolsky explores startling implications for criminal justice, achievement, and being human. From reframing punishment to questioning meritocracy, he doesn't flinch from disruptive conclusions. Can we truly "choose" anything? Get ready to have your perception of human behavior radically reshaped in this mind-bending dialogue.

So many insightful and important conversations

I loved the Free Will is a Lie episode. So many aspects of that conversation I have believed intrinsically for years but this episode gave the words to express that belief. And such a different perspective than our part of the world believes.
