Dirty Minds

program: 
Pathways
program date: 
Sun, 06/03/2012

We all know what love is. Or at least we think we do. But why do we fall in love? What actually goes on in our brains when we love someone?  What does "chemistry" really mean for the way we approach relationships? In this day and age we want our advice backed by cold, hard science. Instead of Mom's shoulder, Freud's couch or the pastor's office, we often look for answers in genetic profiles and brain scanners. Today's guest has investigated the latest findings in biology, neuroimaging, endocrinology, evolutionary science, psychology and more to gain insight into why we do what we do when we're in love.

Our guest on Pathways today is Kayt Sukel, author of the new book Dirty Minds: How our brains influence love, sex, and relationships. She has written for The Atlantic, USA Today, The Washington Post, and others. She earned a BS in cognitive psychology and an MS in engineering psychology. She is a partner in the renowned family travel website Travel Savvy Mom and is also a frequent contributor to the Dana Foundation's many science publications. Kayt has recently returned to the United States after living abroad for six years. She lives in Houston, Texas.

Brain Circus

Michelle’s “keeping it real” personality and entrepreneur style has been described as vivacious, committed as a catalyst able to see beyond reality, a wordsmith wizard, and a playful connector and leader. She can often be found goofing with her sweet-love son, dancing, or gratefully working with amazing everyday visionaries dedicated to an integrated and kind world. Yet don’t let her spunk and business mindedness distract you from her focused devotion to cultivating awareness around what she calls our super powers of acceptance, curiosity, and connection as the elixir of youth, health, and living wholeheartedly.

Her current creative ventures are Brain Circus; a community festive-ALL premiering in Portland in 2012, which offers play based learning for adults, brain science, and local community based businesses, and Divine Deviants; a women’s collaborative business supportive of the storytelling and promotion of the everyday unsung hero and grassroots philanthropy.

She’s played in many sandboxes of the working world, mostly within practices or businesses that help heal or transform the bodies, minds, and spirits of individuals or groups. Oh, and there were also those stints as a restorer of a lighthouse ship and Head Fudgemaker as well.

Pity the Billionaire

program: 
Pathways
program date: 
Sun, 02/19/2012

Economic catastrophe usually brings social protest and demands for change—or at least it's supposed to. But when today's guest set out in 2009 to look for expressions of American discontent, all he could find were loud demands that the economic system be made even harsher on the recession's victims and that society's traditional winners receive even grander prizes. Today we will examine the peculiar mechanism by which dire economic circumstances have delivered wildly unexpected political results. Our guest on Pathways today is Thomas Frank, the author of Pity the Billionaire, The Wrecking Crew, What's the Matter with Kansas?, and One Market Under God. A former opinion columnist for The Wall Street Journal, Frank is the founding editor of The Baffler and a monthly columnist for Harper's. He lives outside Washington, D.C.
