I'm going to date myself on today's episode, but I have to share that I literally remember the day when Facebook became a thing and my college didn't have access to it yet. I also remember working at a company that had such a stringent social media policy that it would be laughable now. I remember life before social media, but I know that because of it, we are all forever changed. It's changed how we connect with people, and it's changed how we promote our offerings… and authors, you can't escape that. But where should you be? How much time should you spend? What is worth your personal and financial investment? On this episode of The emPowered Author Podcast, we are unpacking the answer to these questions and Stephanie shares her top 3 tips to help authors develop and build their social platform.

"On hearing this, Jesus said, 'It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: "I desire mercy, not sacrifice." For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.'" In this episode, Raymond and Sophie discuss their mutual favorite superhero in Spider-Man: No Way Home. (Mostly because they wanted to discuss Into the Spider-Verse, but they were foiled. So they settled for the next best thing.) What does it mean to be Spider-Man? Should Peter Parker let the villains die? What does a Marvel movie have to do with Racine's Iphigenia? All this and more in our latest episode.

This week on the podcast, I had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Anna Lembke, the New York Times bestselling author of “Dopamine Nation: Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence.” Dr. Lembke has also written about the opioid drug crisis in her book “Drug Dealer, MD,” and appeared as an expert in the Netflix documentary The Social Dilemma. On this episode, Dr. Lembke and I discuss how our brains are wired for the pursuit of pleasure, how this wiring can get us hijacked in a modern era of abundance, and how everything from romance novels to heroine can be fodder for addictive behavior, even if we don't think of ourselves as “addicts.” This interview is the last in this month's series relating to ADHD in honor of ADHD Awareness Month. While Dr. Lembke and I didn't specifically get into ADHD, dopamine happens to be the primary neurotransmitter involved in the symptoms of ADHD, and Dr. Lembke discusses the use and abuse of stimulants like Adderall in her book. That said, this episode is literally for everyone.-----------------------------Find Dr. Lembke on her website, https://www.annalembke.com/ and buy her books at any bookseller

It's +1 Day 1 Again. And Always! Hi, This is Brian. Welcome back to another +1. This is +1 number 1,289. And… As you know if you've been following along, the last time I did a +1 was nearly two years ago—717 days ago to be precise. I took a little break to launch Heroic. I'm THRILLED to be back. We used to call these little micro lessons “Optimize +1s.” Going forward, we're going to call them “Heroic +1s.” When I first created the +1 series years ago (2005 days ago to be precise!), I committed to doing 1,000 days in a row. I wound up doing 1,288. This time, I'm committing to doing over 10,000 (!!!) days in a row. 10,319 days in a row to be precise. At which point I may consider taking a day off. So… If a new +1 doesn't show up in your inbox, assume that either our technology died or… I died. (Hah!) Seriously. I'm ALL IN. Why 10,319 days? Because that's how many days are left between now and January 1, 2051–the date by which we aspire to help create a world in which 51% of humanity is flourishing. We'll chat more about the origin story for that target and the tattoo on my left forearm that reflects my commitment to that moonshot goal. Why +1s? Because I believe that the only way to fundamentally and permanently change your life is to move from theory to practice to mastery TODAY. Not SOMEDAY. And definitely not only on the days when you (insert whiney voice) *feel* like it. If we want to forge antifragile confidence and more consistently express the best, most Heroic versions of ourselves, it's simple… We. Must. Show. Up. TODAY. ESPECIALLY on those days when we don't *feel* like it. Now… The feedback we got from our community about how our +1 series changed their lives was incredibly inspiring. And… After launching Heroic, I stepped back and looked at all the ways I (and we!) can best support you in getting your Soul Force to 101 (more on that soon!). We're fired up that the early research shows that the core Heroic app experience (featuring Basic Training and Target Practice) can help you flourish. And, we're fired up that all the old Optimize content—including over 1,000 +1s, over 600 PhilosophersNotes, and 50 Optimal Living 101 classes—is now integrated into one Heroic app. We're ALSO fired up that our Mastery Series (which research has *also* shown can help people change their lives and used to only be available as part of our Coach offering) is now part of our basic premium Heroic offering. Plus, we can't wait to roll out our integrated Heroic Social features and welcome more Guides to the platform as we continue to execute our vision in the months and years ahead as we strive to create a world-class social training platform that can serve as an answer to The Social Dilemma and, literally, help change the world. If you haven't signed up for the monthly/annual/lifetime options for Heroic, you can learn more about all that here: https://heroic.us/join And… As I thought about how we could best support you in fully activating your Soul Force (aka your Heroic superpower!), it became really (!) clear to me that reactivating the +1 series would be a super important part of that commitment to you and to the rest of our community. As I said in the VERY first +1 on Destiny Math, it's ALL (always!) about those tiny little decisions we make all day, every day. And, as we discussed in this +1 on Atomic Habits: Tiny = Mighty (inspired by wisdom from James Clear's super-popular Atomic Habits—check out those Notes), the exponential benefits of aggregating and compounding tiny little gains over an extended period of time by showing up day in and day out are CRAZY. For now… I'm thrilled to be back and, if you feel so inspired to have me in your life, I can't wait to see you tomorrow morning and every morning you'd like a little dose of ancient wisdom, modern science and practical tools to help you optimize and actualize your potential. Of course, if you'd prefer NOT to hang out every morning, you can change your settings and get these +1s Weekly or never! Your ideal is our ideal. Just click one of the links in the footer of this email if you want to change your settings. 10,319 days. (Deo (and daimon) volente!) It's Day 1. Again. Always. You. Me. Our daimons. It's going to be Heroic. It's time to change the world. One person at a time. Together. Starting with you and me and us. TODAY.

She is also Program Director of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Fellowship, and Chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic. She is a diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and a diplomate of the American Board of Addiction Medicine.

In 2016, she published her best-selling book on the prescription drug epidemic, "Drug Dealer, MD – How Doctors Were Duped, Patients Got Hooked, and Why It's So Hard to Stop" (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2016). Her book was highlighted in the New York Times as one of the top five books to read to understand the opioid epidemic (Zuger, 2018). "Drug Dealer, MD" combines case studies with public policy, cultural anthropology, and neuroscience, to explore the complex relationship between doctors and patients around prescribing controlled drugs. It has had an impact on policy makers and legislators across the nation. Dr. Lembke has testified before Congress and consulted with governors and senators from Kentucky to Missouri to Nevada. She has been a featured guest on Fresh Air with Terry Gross, MSNBC with Chris Hayes, and numerous other media broadcasts. Using her public platform and her faculty position at Stanford University School of Medicine, Dr. Lembke has developed multiple teaching programs on addiction and safe prescribing, as well as opioid tapering. She has held multiple leadership and mentorship positions and received the Stanford's Chairman's Award for Clinical Innovation, and the Stanford Departmental Award for Outstanding Teaching.

This week, we welcome Randima Fernando. Randy works at the intersection of technology, mindfulness and social impact, helping to find ethical solutions to hard problems. Here's a co-founder of Center for Humane Technology (CHT), a nonprofit whose mission is to align technology with humanity's best interests. The Center for Humane Technology was featured in the Emmy winning film, The Social Dilemma, which has been seen by over a hundred million people globally. This episode is the first in our new series on the tools that we use, where we discuss, how technology mediates our lived experiences. In this wide ranging conversation, we delve into some of the systemic issues of the technology industry today, which are now shaping the way that we live. We discuss how business incentives, not human interests, govern design, how no tools are created neutral and why we all, users and designers alike, need to understand what thriving means to us so that we can live these values, eyes wide open, in the tools that we create and use. Randy was previously the founding Executive Director at Mindful Schools, a nonprofit that has taught mindfulness to millions of kids and over 50,000 educators worldwide. Before that, Randy led many award-winning projects and authored 3 books on 3D graphics over seven years at NVIDIA, where he was also inaugural board member of the NVIDIA Foundation. Randy also serves on the board of Spirit Rock Meditation Center. CHT offers several helpful resources: Their free online course, Foundations of Humane Technology, helps product teams create technology that treats attention and intention as sacred, protects well-being, and builds our collective capacity to address humanity's most urgent challenges. (https://www.humanetech.com/course) Their podcast, Your Undivided Attention, has over 14 million downloads, and explores the incredible power that technology has over our lives — and how we can use it to catalyze a humane future.

There has been a lot of focus on the damage that social media is doing to all of us, its users. This growing awareness was partly fuelled by the work of Tristan Harris, through the breakout hit documentary The Social Dilemma. But there has been less attention on how this new landscape also affects creators, through factors like audience capture and feedback loops that distort truth seeking. Tristan Harris is the director of the Centre for Humane Technology, trying to re-envision a healthier relationship with the technological tools we are using: https://www.humanetech.com/
Welcome to the Real Life is Mind Blowing Podcast where two friends will chat, laugh and maybe even cry as we discuss documentaries we've watched. Today we'll be talking about The Social Dilemma a documentary streaming on Netflix about the the unintended consequences of social media.
The social dilemma is probably happening in all houses with teenage kids. Today we talk about what's the appropriate age for kids to get on social media and how we are trying to stay in the loop with the kids and student athletes. We get to talk with Mollie, a 13 year old who just started using snapchat. She explains how that's the main form of communication today with kids. Looking for help with your kids social media activity? We talk about the bark app, which you can sign up for a free 7 day trial. https://www.bark.us/signup?ref=5X7FJ6N
Take a break! Caught up in the web of social media? Maybe it's time to snap back to reality to improve your mental health, just like Tom Holland. But are the clever designs of big tech the problem or do we have ourselves to blame? And when are online social habits an addiction versus just a terrible distraction? Is this the 'Big Tobacco' of our time... Nexus speaks to Anna Lembke, Professor of Psychiatry and Social Behaviour at Stanford University who featured in the 2020 Netflix documentary ‘The Social Dilemma' who says social media addiction is a reality for many people but abstaining completely is unrealistic for our times. Brian Primack is the Dean of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University who says we need to be very selective in the content we consume in order for it to be beneficial, and Nir Eyal, a behavioural design consultant believes we cannot wait for big tech to change, we need to be in control of our own behaviour.

Benzodiazepines (often referred to as benzos) are often prescribed to treat anxiety, seizures, and sleep disorders. Some of the most common benzos include Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, and Valium. In this episode, the Author of “Dopamine Nation” & “Drug Dealer, MD,” Psychiatrist & Stanford professor Dr. Anna Lembke, joins us to discuss the sleep-related drug benzos and why it's called a "Hidden Epidemic." Dr. Lembke notes that between 1990 and 2012, the rate of benzo use increased, leading to widespread addiction and overdose rates.Dr. Lembke discusses her journey as a therapist specializing in addictions and explains the risks associated with long-term benzodiazepine use and the process of helping patients get off these hugely addictive drugs. Thankfully, the latest neuroscience research has allowed her and others to understand better what's happening in the brain as we become addicted and what happens when we embark on the process of getting off of them.Benzodiazepines cause many physical changes in your body and brain. These can be unpleasant and frightening, but they can also be eased off gradually & responsibly with the support of trained professionals. If you or someone you know is struggling with long-term benzodiazepines, you will want to listen to this episode!GUEST BIO: Anna Lembke, MD is professor of psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine and chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic. A clinician scholar, she is the author of more than a hundred peer-reviewed publications, has testified before the United States House of Representatives and Senate, has served as an expert witness in federal and state opioid litigation, and is an internationally recognized leader in addiction medicine treatment and education.In 2016, she published Drug Dealer, MD – How Doctors Were Duped, Patients Got Hooked, and Why It's So Hard to Stop (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2016), highlighted in the New York Times as one of the top five books to read to understand the opioid epidemic (Zuger, 2018). Dr. Lembke appeared in the Netflix documentary The Social Dilemma, an unvarnished look at the impact of social media on our lives.

Ron Duan.What does a kid from Kyle Mountsier's freshman tennis team have to do with the Social Dilemma documentary? Apparently a lot, if you ask Dr. Nicole Lipkin. She spends time with Paul, Kyle and Michael talking them through the mental health issues facing our world, or if we're being honest, the issues we all are facing. Nothing's off the table, from mental agility, to social comparison, to the emotional contagions.What we talk about in this episode:0:00 Intro with Michael Cirillo, Paul J Daly and Kyle Mountsier.9:29 Dr. Nicole Lipkin understands group dynamics, meaning that she studies how people relate to each other, and she's found that if we understand our own internal workings, it will help us relate to those around us.“And so when I'm doing this work, it's not about like, follow these five steps to be a really great leader or have a really great team or have a great culture. It's about getting what's going inside here. Get what's going inside your team a little bit, understand a little bit about human dynamics and group dynamics, so we can all maneuver a little bit better. And when we group together, it's awesome, man, when we step on each other's feet, the world's not over. If we could learn to groove a little bit better, and know that like, it's all about being flexible and open and getting it and understanding our own internal workings like we wouldn't be fighting so much.”13:33 For some reason, we've minimized mental health, but Dr. Nicole Lipkin recognizes that mental health is what gives us our ability to do everything else.“We minimize the mental stuff. Because we don't see it. It's not tangible. Like we think about mental health, we think about mental wellness, we, you know, we think about the guy on the side of the street, freaking out screaming, talking to himself. We don't think about us on our every day, you know, our everyday work in life, but the reality is, mental health and mental wellness and flexibility, mental flexibility and agility. Like, that's how you're productive. That's how you wake up in the morning and get motivated to get out of bed.”26:53 What is an emotional contagion?“You smile, I smile, you frown, I frown, we mimic one another. And it can happen in our electronic communication, it can happen in our face to face communication. This is one of the reasons why you know we are having global contagion right now from the pandemic like this is one of the reasons why we're seeing a rise in road rage, a rise in domestic violence, crazy fights on airplanes, like all of that stuff.”30:10 Dr. Nicole Lipkin talked about finding your identity, and recognizing that it might not be the same for everyone. For some people, it's 18 hour work days. For others it's looking forward to a vacation. We need to be wary of social comparison and saying that one is better than the other.⭐️ Love the podcast?

Johann Hari (@johannhari101) is a New York Times best-selling author and top-rated TED speaker. His latest book is Stolen Focus: Why You Can't Pay Attention—And How to Think Deeply Again. What We Discuss with Johann Hari: It's not just your imagination: attention spans are shortening, and finding the mental state that fosters deep thinking is increasingly elusive. It's not just kids: college-age people switch tasks, on average, every 65 seconds. Adults? Every three minutes. We've become accustomed to interrupting ourselves when external distractions aren't there to do it for us. It's not your fault: your inability to focus isn't a personal failure; your focus has been stolen from you by powerful external forces that have left all of us uniquely vulnerable to corporations determined to raid our attention for profit. It's not just the internet and technology: our lack of focus has actually been happening for generations. Discover what Johann learned about reclaiming this focus—as individuals, and as a society—on a trip that took him around the world. And much more...

On episode 139, we welcome David Swift to discuss the pervasive myth of identities, how politicians and pundits exploit identity politics for personal gain, personal identity conflicts and how class and political views can interfere with each other, understanding why rural voters supported Trump and why calling all of them deplorables isn't the answer, the political views of ordinary people and why it's difficult to neatly place them in a political category, the importance of working toward improving the material circumstances of marginalized groups as opposed to engaging in performative art like virtue signaling, and how social media fuels extremist perspectives. David Swift is a historian and writer based in London who specializes on the history and contemporary politics of the British Left, particularly in relation to race, class, gender and popular culture. He has researched and taught at several universities in the UK and abroad. His first book, A Left for Itself, was released by the radical publisher Zero Books in 2019. His newest book, available now, is called The Identity Myth: Why We Need to Embrace Our Differences to Beat Inequality.
