Universal Basic income (17:42) Dr. Katharina Nieswandt is currently an assistant professor of Philosophy at Concordia University. With today’s increasingly advanced technology, automated machines are quickly taking the place of humans in the work force.   Examples of this phenomena are popping up around the country in the form of self-driving cars, buses, and man-less stores.  Even though less humans are actually working, should we still get paid for a job a machine can do?  Dr. Katharina Nieswandt explains what Universal Basic income is and if it will be part of our future. Building Your Brand (1:05:00) Mark Bonchek is the founder and Chief Epiphany Officer of Shift Thinking. He helps companies make the shift from incremental to exponential growth and change.  In today’s world we keep hearing the phrase “build your brand.” But, what exactly does that mean and how do we do that? Mark Boncheck, founder and CEO of Shift Thinking, has a few ideas for us and believes that you don’t have a relationship WITH your brand, but that brands are the relationship. Mark is here with us this morning to discuss more about branding and how it can benefit us, ALL of us.  Redirect: Changing the Stories We Live By (1:53:41) Dr. Timothy D. Wilson is a renowned psychologist and Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia. He has published over 100 articles in scholarly journals and edited books, primarily on the topics of self-knowledge, unconscious processing, and the applications of social psychology to addressing social problems. Everyone has their own trials they have to work through every day--- getting through depression, overcoming trauma, working out family problems, making difficult decisions, you name it. Dr. Wilson discusses his book, “Redirect: Changing the Stories We Live By,” to teach us how to begin overcoming these life difficulties through our very own thoughts.
