Couple Finances (15:55) Michael F.

Fear (33:09) Reid Wilson, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, Director of Anxiety Disorders Treatment Center, Author Fear is integral to the human experience. The fear response is determined by a brain structure called the amygdala. It can be alerted by an immediate, bodily threat—say a charging bull. But it can also be trigged by far more innocuous stimuli: your own thinking. Understanding the way the amygdala functions and what triggers its activation can help you address your catastrophizing. Fortnite Fever (51:10) Jennifer Powell-Lunder, PsyD, Clinical Psychologist, Adjunct Professor at Pace University, Author Fortnite fever is raging across the tween and teen population.

Dr. Ghaemi explains how the era of “Fake News” spawns from postmodernism, and how truth has become relative. Deadlines (1:22:23) Alice Boyes, PhD, Researcher, Writer for Psychology Today We usually prioritize things according to deadlines. The task with a quickly approaching deadline comes first, even when that task is relatively meaningless in itself. This mindset can keep us from accomplishing those things that are most important but don’t have solid deadlines. You can change your approach to your to-do list in order to meet deadlines while still accomplishing what’s most important.
