Psychology vs climate change: what we think, why we think it, and how it all adds up to a planet-sized emergency. Each episode host Dave Powell interviews experts in how our brains work - from PhDs in psychology to writers, activists and beyond. They'll talk about how their brains and our brains do (and don't) work, and how all of that might help make sense of the climate crisis - and possibly what to do about it.

We tend to reduce food and health to bitesize nuggets of information, like calories or BMI. It’s understandable; numbers are easily digestible when we’re looking for answers or a quick fix. But the thing is, there’s a lot more to health – hey, there’s a lot more to life! – than the numbers you see on the back of a crisp packet or on the scales. Geneticist Dr Giles Yeo feels we need a bit more space to think about the relationship food has with our body, our mind, and even our soul! Join Gile ...

In the last episode of Season 1 we learn all about one of the weirdest but most important of all human brain-oddnesses: pluralistic ignorance. When you think something and lots of other people also think that thing but none of you think anyone else agrees with you, so nothing changes. Got that? Dave is joined by Professor Deborah Prentice from Prin…
 
Being alive can be a lonely business, as can trying to do something about climate change. But how important to our brains is connecting with others?

Joining Dave this …
 
Here’s something a bit different this week. Rosie has been working on a pilot for this new podcast idea… I am an only child. I do not have a sister. As far as I know.

And then there's climate change. There's a clue in the name: it…

When we lose someone or something we love, our brains want to grieve. Why? What's going on when grieve - when we do it well, or don't do it properly? Is it grief we feel when we see huge forest fires or melting ice caps caused by climate change? And if it is - where do we put that grief, in a society that doesn't recognise it? This week Dave speaks…
 
Food: yum! It keeps us alive and keeps our brains healthy (or unhealthy, all-too-often). And the food that we eat - what it is and where it comes from - is one of the most important things we're going to have to get right when it comes to climate change. Kind of a problem then that there are very few things about which we're quite so uppity and str…
