And we’re back with another podcast recap ! In this weeks thought-provoking episode, we had the pleasure of hosting the brilliant Dr. Kaushik Ram, PhD—an extraordinary visionary in the field of neuroscience, and all around lovely human. His chat left not our audience, but myself and Joe enlightened and inspired, encouraging us all to contemplate the intricate interplay between science, matters of the heart, and the human experience.
In the era of digital connections, Dr. Ram warned against the addictive trap of social media and dating apps. His insights delved into the impact of unprecedented exposure to countless connections, urging us to contemplate the essence of genuine connections in a world dominated by fleeting encounters. He then demystified the brave truth about attraction, unveiling the science behind the chemistry that sparks connection, which I found so interesting. We then explored the intricacies of hormonal changes and their fascinating influence on the dynamics of attraction in the female brain.
Lessons I learnt along the way ? I know I say this every podcast recap, but this episode in particular was so eye-opening and informative on a personal level. He, quite eloquently I must say, delved into the necessity of experiencing that first heartbreak we all go through, shedding light on the untold agony it conceals and why this rite of passage is, surprisingly, so necessary for personal growth. He also dissected the paradox of choice in our modern era, in a way few others can, explaining that this abundance of options we’re faced with often leads to decision paralysis rather than the satisfaction we crave.
