Whole Brain Thinking: Wisdom, Love and Magic!
Summary: Welcome to Whole Brain Thinking: Wisdom, Love and Magic! with your host Dr. Margaret Cochran. Everything you think, everything you feel or imagine - this is what the show is about - you! Dr. Cochran will show you how to make sense of the worlds of linear science and felt experience and understand their impact on your everyday life.
Maybe what we need is a shared cosmology. No Seriously! Dr. Cochran talks with Dr. Joel Primack and Nancy Abrams authors of The New Universe and the Human Future..
But what if God isn’t willing and the creek does rise? What if there are people who believe they know the mind of God based on an unauthorized biography called The Bible, and they want to legislate their own twisted version of reality. Scary stuff! Dr. Cochran’s guest Frank Schaeffer, Author of Sex, Mom and God, helps unravel these and other mysteries.
Or is it food disastrous food? Many of us struggle, in one way or another, with what we eat. And often it's fast food '1' and us, 20lbs heavier than is good for us. But help is here, as Dr. Cochran's guest this week is chef, author and nutritional expert, Alexandra Jamieson.
There are many kinds of sickness, the most virulent and deadly of them are lies, rumors, pseudoscience and fear. These diseases are killing children in record numbers all over the world. To shed the bright light of truth on this horrible subject is Dr. Paul Offit, author of 'Deadly Choices, How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All'
Dr. Cochran's guest this week is none other than Dr. Barbara Oakley, author of 'Cold-Blooded Kindness'. Dr. Oakley who also penned the book 'Evil Genes', a tome extolling the 'joys' of Borderline Personality Disorder, has written another painstakingly authentic and 'ripping' tale delineating the 'psych' in psychopathology.
Ever wonder what happens after here, as in hereafter? What little we do know is certainly intriguing. But what then? Dr. Cochran talks with internationally renowned psychic/medium Lisa Williams about her new book 'The Survival Of The Soul' that addresses that very question.
Or so it’s said. How do you feel about getting old? If the answer is “not great”, then you are not alone. Most of us try not to think about aging. But even though we are all getting older every day it may not be as ‘bad’ as you thought. Find out more as Dr. Cochran talks with Dr. Marc Agronin, author of ‘How We Age: A Doctor’s Journey into the Heart of Growing Old’.
This program is all about what it’s like to have a disease that really is all in your head. This is an intimate look at what it’s like to live with mental illness. Dr. Cochran’s guests today, all of whom suffer from some form of mental illness, are going to talk about their experiences. It’s an opportunity to learn a lot and to exercise your empathy muscles.
Not! Messiness and clutter causes stress, anxiety and disharmony. And no matter what jokes you tell or how many excuses you make it’s a bad deal. So, "who you gonna call?" Organizational expert Melissa Stacey, that’s who. She is Dr. Cochran’s guest and contributing author to the book, ‘Get Organized Today’.
Uh, probably not many takers on that deal. Most of us wouldn't sign up for a trip to the O.R. unless we really need or want it pretty badly. And one of the things that people fear most about surgery is anesthesia. Why? Because lots of people have had really, really, really bad experiences because they've been over-medicated. Now, however, we can make that part of the process much safer and more pleasant thanks to Dr. Cochran's guest Dr. Barry L. Friedberg, author of the book 'Getting Over Going Under: 5 Things You Must Know Before Anesthesia'. So relax and breathe deeply, you are in good hands.
What if work was a joyful thing and wealth meant more than just the accumulation of currency? This week Dr. Cochran talks with the man who has all the answers, Jeff Gitterman, award winning financial guru and author of 'Beyond Success: Redefining the Meaning of Prosperity'. Give it a listen, you'll be richer for the experience!
Off the charts you say? Well, you are not alone. But, there is hope and help at hand. Dr. Cochran, very politely of course, talks with award winning columnist and author Amy Alkon about her book, 'I See Rude People'. Thoughtfulness anyone?
Most of us do! And you know that’s bad because we are always selling something, our ideas, ourselves... So selling is important and we need to learn to do it well. To that end Dr. Cochran talks with Bob Berg, spiritual guy and salesperson extraordinaire and co-author of Go Givers Sell More. If you’re sold on listening to this show it will be one of the best buys you've ever made. All the information contained herein has a lifetime guarantee and no long-term service contract is required, it’s a heck of a deal!
If it did what would it say? Probably quite a bit! Dr. Cochran talks with Dr. Gay Bardin about Bodytalk therapy. Oh, wait, I think my body is trying to tell me something. What's that? Oh, listen...
Do you find yourself asking questions like, What is Beauty, What is Truth, and all that? And while we're on the subject, did you hear the one about when Heidigger And A Hippo Walk Through Those Pearly Gates? So, here's the punch line, it's not a joke! Well, not entirely anyway, it's a book about philosophy that's both enlightening and entertaining! Join Dr. Cochran in conversation with Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein, authors of the aforementioned 'high brow' tome and two of the world's funniest and most philosophically facile minds!
