Balancing Denial

EIn this BONUS to our Immersive episode, “Risk,” we explore denial and how most of our lives involve a careful balance of denial to cope with risk. Cindy Gagnon shares her avalanche story to illustrate how denial can be very unexpected. And we hear from several scientists to explain our cognitive coping mechanisms.

You can subscribe to Qualia through Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/user-913130677 Or through any podcast app. I like Radiopublic: https://radiopublic.com/qualia-6rOPlK Qualia's website: qualiapod.com Here are the show notes for Ep 1, Risk: In this IMMERSIVE episode, “Risk,” our goal is to immerse you in a soundscape that pulled and pushed you to alternatively feel risk-seeking and risk-averse. To preserve this immersive experience, we stripped out a lot of the reporting we did on the science of risk. Here, you can find out more about the science of risk perception. We’ll walk you through the episode, and point out materials – interviews we did with researchers, journal articles we dug up, books we read – that let you dig deeper into the research. SCENE: You finally make i...

SIFT farewell Qualia Ep 1: Risk

Going the Distance: What happens during long exercise bouts

ESome people run long distances. Why do they do this? What happens to the body when it can't go anymore? Why are some people addicted to it? We answer most of these questions through the personal experiences of ultra-runner, Jordan Wirfs-Brock, and also hear from experts in physiology and medicine along the way. Enjoy!

Hear about the subconscious subverting the conscious mind when it comes to movement, stroke patients getting major benefits from a treadmill, and how punishment is a spice used in violin training. Voices: Prof. Alaa Ahmed - Univ. Colorado Boulder Yinfeng Keynes Chen - Flatiron Strings Academy
