Podcast Parts 1 & 2 : Ologies by Alie Ward
Episode 30 & 31 (April 2018): Fearology (FEAR) with Mary Poffenroth
“Every day, your brain tries to save your life by being terrified. Thanks, brain! Also, calm the f*ck down, brain. Alie hunted down Mary Poffenroth, an expert in the biological and sociological causes/effects of fear and it is riveting. This real-life FEAROLOGIST (which is a real word) talks about how fear is literally killing you, the difference between stress and fear, how to get along with your co-workers, friends, or partner better, and how to talk to your brain when it has needlessly pulled the fire alarm. Part 1 of a 2-part series that will honestly change your life.” (quoted from the show’s Episode Notes)
