The Hidden Brain Series: We will be using material from the podcast “The Hidden Brain” by Shankar Vedantam. Participants will listen to a podcast episode prior to class and then we will have a guest speaker who will share some practical ways that phenomenon is experienced in the real world.
As an example, we will listen to the episode “Why We Hold On To Things,” where Vedantam talks with Psychologist Bruce Hood about our relationship with our possessions. Then, Kaye Ginsberg, owner of Peaceful Transitions, a downsizing and moving company for older adults, will talk about how that translates into the real world. Each week’s podcast will be on the calendar page for that week and included in the Weekly Reader Email.
Also you can find the week’s podcast on this event page from the calendar.
