This week, Mark explores how you can reframe the failures and rejections that are part of everyday academic life as something that deeply affirms our values and leads to greater meaning and contentment. In part 1, he focuses on how we pick our battles and choose to do things that are high risk but high reward in terms of expressing our values, and how to know when to stop fighting a losing battle in line with our values. Read some of the tweets quoted at the start of the episode.

We all know that meals bring people together. But when it comes to building trust and cooperation, it turns out that not all meals are created equal. And this week on the program, we’re talking to a researcher whose work has shown that people eating from shared serving plates are more likely to work together rather than compete.

In this episode, we’re chatting about Science Disrupt 2.0 – what we mean when we talk about ‘disruption’, what deeper conversations we now need to have about science, and how and why our own ideas have evolved over the last 4 years.
We talk about what’s changed in science since 2016, including the more open nature of critical conversation in academia; how the cult of personality (of consultants, startups and VCs) can make a mockery of science and tech, and what deeper questions aren’t being asked while many still problematic practices continue in research and tech transfer.

Russ Poldrack is back! For our eleventh episode, we sat down with Dr. Poldrack to discuss his book, The New Mind Readers: What Neuroimaging Can and Cannot Reveal about Our Thoughts. Our conversation addresses a number of the most pressing questions in psychology and neuroscience today. Why can we de-code some cognitive functions in the brain, but not others? How might we use neuroimaging to guide personalized medicine? What can we do to ensure our science is conducted in the most reproducible and rigorous ways? And is it really necessary to study the brain in order to understand human behavior?

This week we present two stories from teachers dealing with wild experiences in the classroom.
Part 1: When his students keep having “accidents” during nap time, kindergarten teacher Alvin Irby investigates
Part 2: In Aida Rosenbaum’s first month as a high-school science teacher, a fight breaks out between her students.
Alvin Irby received his M.S. in Childhood Education from Bank Street College of Education and his MPA in Public and Nonprofit Management and Policy from New York University. He is a former kindergarten teacher turned award-winning social entrepreneur, comedian, and author.

His TED Talk “How to inspire every child to be a lifelong reader” has been viewed over 1 million times. Irby’s clever social commentary and humorous observations earned him a coveted spot in the StandUp NBC national showcase. His fresh perspective and smart brand of humor shine through in his 2018 comedy album “Really Dense.” Irby’s debut children’s book, Gross Greg, combines his passion for early literacy and humor while capturing the hilariously gross behavior of kids everywhere.
