    TSHP474: Organ Donation

    Is it right to give part of your body to another person? Some people who become donors donate their body once they are dead while others do so while they are still alive giving away a kidney, bone marrow, eggs and semen, blood and so on. The whole issues raises so many questions. The main one being just because we can do something should we?

    TSHP472: Is gossip a good thing?

    TSHP472: Is gossip a good thing?

    Why do we gossip? The assumption by evolutionary psychology is that creating a small gossiping group was a way of bonding the group together. The gossip would normally concern people outside of this small group that would be open to criticism. Yet, we can be a part of the group and still be the subject of gossip when we are not there. Have you ever walked into a room and suddenly it goes quiet and the question is ‘what were you all talking about before I came in?’

    TSHP471: Family

    TSHP471: Family

    'My current experience of family is mind blowing. I recently had ten weeks in hospital and the family were in daily contact, wishing me well, enquiries, food and gifts. What a difference. Back in my childhood home I could have felt abandoned. Though it is true that in extreme emergencies they would gather round and act.'

    TSHP469: Power, Win, Lose

    All around us people enact their power in order to win. It might be that we are at a crowded bar trying to get a drink so that we and a whole group of other people are trying to gain the attention of the bartender to get their order met. Who gets to the til first, gets on the bus first?

Episode 367 Self Belief and Confidence June 17, 2020

New to this podcast but very disappointed that the guest Sean chose to go in a direction of diagnosing President Trump and making statements of opinion as if fact. Additionally, Sean very ignorantly identifies the President’s supporters as rednecks, thus explaining their poorly placed support and belief in our President. So really Sean, who is the one displaying arrogance and ignorance in this episode? I’m just listening to my second episode. I’m still giving 5 stars because I believe this is a valuable podcast and a host who sincerely wishes to help people and share good insights - so thank you for that, Ed.
