episode 701: Why Are We Restless?


Most everyone has experienced restlessness from time to time.

episode 700: The Life and Afterlife of Harry Houdini


Quick, think of a famous magician. Dimes to donuts, you just thought of Harry Houdini.

When it comes to proposed solutions to life's problems, whether on an individual or societal scale, the four most commonly used words these days are "According to a study . . .

episode 696: Theodore Roosevelt, The Last Romantic


Romanticism, not in terms of courtship and bouquets of roses, but as a philosophical approach to life which blossomed in the 19th century, embodies many tenets, including a nostalgia for the past, a heroic view of the world, a firm sense of right and wrong, and the idea that an individual can shape his own destiny, as well as have an outsized impact on the world...

episode 693: Why Is It So Hard to Admit You Were Wrong?
