He is the author of Scienceblind: Why Our Intuitive Theories About the World Are So Often Wrong. Why do we catch colds? What causes seasons to change? And if you fire a bullet from a gun and drop one from your hand, which bullet hits the ground first? In a pinch we almost always, et these questions wrong. Andrew Shtulman explains how our intuitive theories are often wrong, and how correcting them could present clearer solutions to many controversies--around vaccines, climate change, or evolution--that plague our politics today. Why Your Diet Is Making You Fat (1:09:31) Brooke Alpert is a nationally recognized nutrition expert and best-selling author.

Sometimes these diets work for a little while, but rarely do they have permanent, long-lasting results. That’s because when they are over we tend to slide back into the same bad habits that led us to gain weight in the first place. Brooke Alpert helps us understand how to overcome these bad habits. Jeff Simpson - Screen Cleaning (1:37:06) Jeff Simpson talks about movies and TV helping you find family-friendly options.
