Drug Use for Grown Ups: Session 144 with Carl Hart
I've been wanting to interview Dr. Carl Hart ever since I first heard him speak at the 2015 Mass ABA conference. Put differently, when asked who would be a 'bucket list' interview, Carl Hart was usually the first name that I answered with. Ever since learning about Carl's work, I've admired his ability and willingness to advance science-based arguments in the popular press media. If this is your first time hearing his name, let me share a little of his background information. Carl is the Ziff Professor of Psychology at Columbia University, where he's been researching the behavioral and neuropharmacological effects of psychoactive drugs in humans for nearly 20 years. Carl's research, along with his personal experience and observations, has shaped an honest and refreshing point of view as to how society treats the behavior of drug taking, and what we need to do in terms of changing public policies in this area. Even if you disagree with his main thesis, I encourage you to listen all the way through our interview. Personally, I have my own homework to do in terms of thinking through whether the full legalization of all classes of drugs is a good idea, but I think in general, it's good to challenge our assumptions and views, even if only periodically. One of the other things that I like about Carl is that he has been successful in communicating complex and nuanced scientific findings in the area of mass media. He's been featured in the op-ed pages of major newspapers and on network television. Carl has also been a guest on The Joe Rogan Experience, which is, by audience standards, very likely the largest podcast out there right now. Even more impressive though is how Carl has taken the time to share his views in popular press books. His first book, High Price, was a New York Times bestseller, and I have no doubt that Drug Use for Grown Ups will meet or exceed the success of it. Long story short, I think there are lessons for dissemination we can all learn from him. Here are the links to the various sources we mentioned: * Carl's latest book, Drug Use for Grown Ups: Chasing Liberty in the Land of Fear. * His debut book, High Price: A Neuroscientist's Journey of Self-Discovery that Challenges Everything You Know About Drugs and Society. * The Declaration of Independence. * The Harrison Narcotics Tax Act of 1914. * Carl's website. * Carl's Twitter. * Carl's appearances on the JRE. * The difference between a Coroner and Medical Examiner.

Episode 152 - (ETHICS) Ethics of Teaching Cultural Responsiveness
While we weren’t able to record our live talk at the Thompson Center Conference this year, it did give us time to think about the ethical responsibility of BCBAs to include instruction and support in improving the cultural responsiveness of our supervisees. I mean, how else can we expect the next generations of behavior analysts to improve their ability to take culture into account during assessment, treatment, and rapport building activities?

Down & Dirty with a CVICU Nurse: Talk with Blake
Recently, a review said this show wasn’t edgy enough. This episode should redeem us a little. XD In this episode, Adrianne welcomes CVICU nurse Blake (no, not Blake Lynch), who is both knowledgeable and totally NSFW in all the best ways. In addition to some off-color jokes that render Adrianne speechless, they talk about tons of stuff both in and out of the ICU. This conversation goes from heavy to light many times, so be prepared for a rollercoaster of emotions. They talk about stuff like: -What kind of person makes a good CV nurse -How it feels when you know your patient won’t survive -How COVID has affected his hospital and the patient outcomes he’s seeing -Passing out as a student/new grad -Why there’s no zinc left in the Pyxis ..and tons more. Blake is working on getting into CRNA school and Adrianne recommended a great blog post about how to be a competitive CRNA school candidate by Jenny Finnell. Please check that out if you have nurse anesthetist dreams! ----------------------------- Like this episode? Buy Adrianne a coffee to say thanks!

#193 Everything is for the Kids with CJ Reynolds (pt.1)
Hello everyone! Educators DO A LOT to make sure kids get the content they need. They stay late to tutor. They craft lessons on the weekends and over breaks. They think and plan, and think and plan, and do it because it is all for the kids! One of my favorite educators modeling this right now is the wonderful CJ Reynolds, author of the fantastic book, Teach Your Class Off. In this episode we talk about how CJ believes we should all be going the extra mile to build quality relationships with students, and meeting them where they are through their interests. We talk about how this approach came about for him, and how his life led him to a career of being the teacher he needed as a kid. I loved this one!     This episode is sponsored by Heinemann—the leading publisher of professional books and resources for educators—and their new book Connecting with Students Online by Jennifer Serravallo. This book’s been getting a lot of buzz because finally someone is getting down to the nitty gritty details of effective online teaching during an unprecedented crisis. Jen Serravallo keeps the focus on what teachers do best: build relationships with students that drive learning and progress. And she shows how to do it remotely. She offers 55 streamlined instructional strategies we can use right away. Everything from conferring to small groups to communicating with a child’s parents or caregivers. Like everything Jen writes, Connecting with Students Online is accessible and respectful of teacher’s time. It’s filled with ready-to-use suggestions, and you don’t need a school technologist to implement them. You’ll find something here to help everyone in your classroom grow, even if you can’t be with them in person. Best of all, Jen will donate a portion of the proceeds from this book to organizations that help children directly impacted by COVID-19. If you don’t have Jennifer Serravallo’s Connecting with Students Online, head over to to read a sample chapter and find out what you’re missing. Or order yourself a copy. You’ll help yourself, your kids, and children struggling because of this this pandemic.
