On today’s show we sit down with Dr. Lindsay Weisner to talk about all things brain and answer the questions you’ve always wondered. Do we really only use 10% of our brains? When do men's brain neurons actually connect? 10? 20? 30? Ever? What are some wild but true neurological anomalies she’s come across in her career? How many bitchy PTA parents are typically in a PTA group? How many times can a clinical psychologist swear tastefully? These questions and more...

Miraculously bees know which flowers to land on to pollinate. Jellyfish are able to live essentially forever by constantly multiplying. Bears go to bed and know exactly when to wake up after months of slumber. And Jason? Well, Jason can drink a beer while standing on one leg. I mean, not all of mother nature's gifts are spectacular. Bears for example. Not that impressive. So if all these species of insects and animals possess magical superpowers why can't humans? Why can't we harness the ability to smell dangerous gases or toxic chemicals or sense the magnetic fields other species can? How about seeing or feeling radiation? Everything we need to thrive is here on this earth. We just have to find it. Today, you've found the best podcast on the planet. Thank you for that mother nature.
For thousands of years these furry, lovable creatures have patrolled the South Pole with nothing more than a delightful fish sandwich or seal blubber stew to keep them going. The South Pole humans even have a couple for pets that play dead most of the time on their den floor. Today, their environment is threatened by plastic straws and Keurig coffee refills, not to mention most have diabetes due to all the Coca-Cola they drink at Christmas. On today's show we're going to figure out how to save these cuddly sugar fiends. Polar Bears. Can't live with them (because they'll eat you), can't live with-
Sorry what's that? This show is not about Polar Bears? I don't understand. Polar what? Polar Shit? Oh. Well excuse me, I thought you said- Oh Shift. Polar Shift. Polar Shift. I get it now. Right, Polar Shift. Wait, no I don't. What is Polar Shift? Oh Pole Shift. Nope, still don't understand.
What if we told you that the location of the poles and axis of the rotation of our planet has shifted many times throughout history causing cataclysmic events? How do you like dem geological apples polar bears? Yeah, we thought so. Really? Again with the loosely, barely tied polar bears? C'mon.
Join us on today's show where Steve finds out about the topic right when he sits down at the microphone which makes for some surprisingly interesting banter.

For a human living in 5,000 B.C. living to the ripe age of 60 may have felt like immortality. Today most expect to live into their 80’s. What happens in 2150? 2750? Will life extension continue? Could we someday, supported by humanity’s greatest advancements in biology, computers, and medicine become immortal?
On today’s show we’re joined by renowned, biogenetic expert Ira Pastor, CEO of the Philadelphia-based life sciences company, Bioquark Inc. His company takes a unique approach to age reversal, merging knowledge from various disciplines in regenerative biology, evolutionary genomics, and bio-cybernetics to directly aid in regeneration and repair of the body.
We’re searching for the fountain of youth. Why don’t you join us and stay a while - like for 60 minutes? Heck, join us eternally… Amie also guests, Oisin reviews a Trappist beer, and even Russ, the neighbor stops by for a pint.

Organs with Memories, A Prophet Who Likes to Party & Dead-ringers. It's All Science. We Think.
Do organs contain desires, memories, and the story of the body they belong to? Can that narrative continue if transplanted into another person long after the donor has been gone? Or is this the makings of another Jessica Alba movie gone terribly wrong? In this first-ever episode, fittingly posted on St. Patrick's Day, Jason & Steve examine the idea that leaving your heart in San Francisco may mean you're living on posthumously inside someone else. Or it could mean they now know your yahoo password and are setting your fantasy football lineup to all kickers. Listen in.
