Speed Riding (0:00:00) What is the riskiest thing you’ve ever done? All of us have done risky things in our lives: some of us have jumped off a cliff into the ocean some of us have swam with sharks and others of us have confessed their love to a complete stranger. Whatever the risk may be, these things exhilarate us and challenge our nerves. Now that we are moving into the snowy season, we’d like to talk about a new winter sport that is amping up the risk factor – it’s called speed riding. We’re super lucky to have JT Holmes on the show with us today, a professional multi-sport athlete who you may know from his insane videos with Red Bull or his stunt work in the Transformers movies and Furious 7. He’s here to talk with us about speed riding. Public Transportation (0:12:08) There’s something exciting about taking the bus. I always feel like I’m embarking on an adventure when I get into a mass transit vehicle. But how do these really affect our quality of life? Here with us to tell us more about the future of transportation is Carl Arky, Senior Media Relations Director for the Utah Transit Authority. Making Your Home Cozy (0:32:07) How many of you have heard the word “hygge” (pronounced “he-yoo-guh)? If you’ve visited Denmark or seen Frozen on Broadway, you might know what I’m talking about. But for those who are completely lost, hygge is the Danish word that translates to mean “the art of being cozy.” Doesn’t that sound nice? One great way to embrace hygge is by making your home cozy. Allison Bean from The Spruce joins us to help know exactly how do that. Baby Names 2020 (0:50:32) With the new year, there are always fun predictions to be made. This year we are making guesses as to who will win the Oscars, the presidential elections, and what kinds of things will define this new decade. We also can take a look at what the top names of the past few decades have been, and what we predict will be the popular names of the coming year. We are talking baby names 2020! We are joined by Pam Redmond, the creator of Nameberry, to make some of our predictions and talk about what’s in a name. Begin with the End in Mind (1:07:48) Each year we’re supposed to come up with New Year’s resolutions. We focus on improving things like our health, fitness, and relationships. But before we make our goals, we need to consider our values and keeping the end in mind. Ganel-Lyn Condie joins us with tips on how to make more purposeful goals by focusing on our values. Ganel-Lyn is a friend of the show and motivational speaker and we’re happy to have her on the show today to discuss this important topic. ASMR (1:25:56) While scrolling through social media, the chances are high that you’ll encounter a video of someone cutting soap, whispering, or crinkling paper. Without any prior knowledge, these videos may seem peculiar, but they actually trigger an autonomous sensory meridian response, or ASMR, that can be used for relaxation. Here to tell us more about ASMR and what makes these videos beneficial is Dr. Craig Richards. Dr. Richards is the Co-Author of the first brain scan study of ASMR and the founder of the website ASMRUniversity.com.
