The New Science of Self-Actualization w/Scott Barry Kaufman
4797
This is one of the goofiest Here We Are episodes to date. Anytime a scientist wants to goof around and keep things loose, I'm way up for it. One of my biggest goals with this show is to humanize scientists and on this one we had a lot of very silly laughs. Like myself, Scott Barry Kaufman wasn't considered the best student in his youth. But his love of science had him flying over every roadblock in his path. He's a real inspiration. Read his books at https://scottbarrykaufman.com/books/ Listen to his conversations with some of the greatest minds out there on his podcast https://scottbarrykaufman.com/podcast/ We chat about overcoming perceived shortcomings and updating Maslow's hierarchy of needs.

Wearable Tech + Covid w/Prof. Michael Snyder
5223
Wearables can do so much more than count your steps. They can also be used for detecting abnormalities caused by Covid up to 10 days before symptoms arise. In this episode, Dr. Michael Snyder explores the many uses of wearable health monitoring technology Michael Snyder is a genomicist, systems biologist, and entrepreneur. He is the Stanford B. Ascherman Professor and Chair of Genetics and Director of Genomics and Personalized Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine. Years ago he started using himself as a guinea pig to test the limits of how modern science can improve health. He used genetic testing, multiple wearables, sensors of every kind to collect all possible data. In the course of that, he detected and prevented his own diabetes and turned his health around. He even discovered he had lyme disease before any symptoms appeared. Now he's developing ways of using AI to sort through the metrics collected by wearables to prevent disease rather than treat symptoms. His new study is essentially a way that anyone with wearable tech can get an alarm when they have a virus before they show symptoms. Immediately after this conversation I bought a Fitbit Versa and joined his study.

The Courage to Suffer
7667
Authors of ‘The Courage to Suffer: A New Clinical Framework for Life's Greatest Crises’ join me to talk about mental health, spirituality, what happens when a crisis makes you rethink the coherence of the very narratives that used to keep you going. Rather than trying to dismiss and escape suffering we can find ways to accept and thrive within it. Sara A. Showalter Van Tongeren has more than twelve years of clinical social work experience in settings such as private practice, foster care, inpatient hospitals and outpatient medical clinics, inter-partner violence shelters, and behavioral health. She has a deep passion to help people cultivate a sense of meaning and develop narratives of resilience following trauma and unexpected life events. Sara specializes in cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, existential psychotherapy, narrative therapy, brainspotting, and acceptance commitment therapy. https://saravantongeren.com/ Daryl R. Van Tongeren is an associate professor of psychology at Hope College. His research focuses on the social motivation for meaning and its relation to virtues and morality. Specifically, he and his students adopt a social-cognitive approach to study meaning in life, religion and virtues, such as forgiveness and humility. https://hope.edu/directory/people/van-tongeren-daryl/index.html Here are the resources for suicide prevention: 1-800-273-8255 (24hrs/7days a week crisis support hotline) suicidepreventionlifeline.org/chat (free online chat staffed by professionals) text 741741 for crisis text support crisistextline.org to message them through facebook or chat online.

Holiday Covid Update w/Nina Fefferman
9171
Covid update with my favorite guest on the subject! Nina Fefferman has spent her career modeling future pandemics. Because of Covid, she’s gone from a theoretical to an applied mathematician. Her interdisciplinary makes her one of the most knowledgeable people at the intersection of mathematics and evolutionary biology. She consistently takes us on a path through the either/or fallacies of health VS economy which have become so politicized and guides us through an exploration of nuance and complexity that we should all be so lucky to journey through. More impressively, she does so in an exceedingly accessible way. If only these kinds of conversations were a bigger part of our global conversation. We are exceptionally fortunate to have humans like Nina working on behalf of all humanity and I am grateful that she took 2.5 hours out of her life to try and save the world. Dr. Fefferman is a professor in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department in the University of Tennessee. Her research focuses on the mathematics of epidemiology, evolutionary and behavioral ecology, and self-organizing behaviors, especially of systems described by networks. While the research in the Fefferman Lab frequently focuses on disease in human and/or animal populations, and how disease and disease-related behavioral ecology can affect the short-term survival and long-term evolutionary success of a population, people in the lab have worked on problems as diverse as computer network security to social behaviors in grass-roots organizations that make the movement susceptible to radicalization. Any fun integration of applied mathematics and human or animal processes is fair game!Thank you for watching and being an inquisitive being. Learn more about your ad choices.

Anthropologists on Witchcraft
6570
Take a peek inside the life of the people who get to peek inside the lives of others. This week I talk with two anthropologists about what it's like to go and live in an extremely different culture. We talk about shamanism, leadership, witchcraft and what past health care and court systems might have looked like. Zach Garfield is an evolutionary anthropologist who investigates how behaviors such as leadership and followership, decision-making, and economic strategies are related to group-level pressures such as network dynamics and alliance patterns, sociopolitical structures, group context, and cultural norms. https://anthro.vancouver.wsu.edu/people/zgarfield/ Manvir Singh Cognitive & evolutionary anthropologist at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse his research program aims to explain why societies develop complex, recurrent traditions such as shamanism, witchcraft, origin myths, property rights, sharing norms, lullabies, dance music, and gods have appeared in human societies everywhere, from nomadic hunter-gatherer bands to complex, industrial, mega-urbanized states. https://www.manvir.org Learn more about your ad choices.

Biodiversity Loss
6263
On this episode, we chat about biodiversity loss as a key issue in our modern world.  We emphasize the impact it has on increasing of disease in our modern environment which isn’t something normally addressed in public discourse.  This doesn’t just impact humans, but the majority of wildlife has lost habitat and the space needed to avoid pathogen spread.  Additionally, globalization has introduced invasive viruses to novel environments which lack defense to them.   Dr. Debra Miller is Professor and Director of the Center for Wildlife Health in the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture. She has a split appointment between the College of Veterinary Medicine and the Department of Forestry, Wildlife and Fisheries https://vetmed.tennessee.edu/FacultyStaff/SitePages/CVMProfile.aspx?NetID=dmille42   She is also the interim director of the new One Health Initiative which started at UT this year and has over 50 faculty and scientists from numerous departments and colleges in an effort to enhance research collaborations across the state and region to address rapidly emerging health challenges. https://onehealth.tennessee.edu Learn more about your ad choices.

The Media Dilemma
7809
Technology is amazing. But it also comes with a number of concerns. How much should we worry and about what? Did you know that there used to be similar concerns about books? Socrates believed that writing was not an effective means of communicating knowledge and now we know he said that over two thousand years ago because of writing. But maybe this time the threat is real. What does the research have to say?

Shane Mauss does the first ever solo episode of the Here We Are Podcast to celebrate episode number 300. For the first time he discusses what this podcast truly means in terms of the greater picture. Hear how this former factory worker who never had an interest in school deviated from a traditional stand up comedy career to peek behind the scenes of science and academia. Hear why a quest to understand life and to answer the biggest questions about existence and consciousness has him talking with researchers in fields he didn't even know existed. Come to understand that no matter how seemingly inconsequential a specific topic might seem at first glance, Shane views every single topic as a relentless exploration to understand the very nature of reality.
