Seventh Generation: Alan Newman and Jeffrey Hollender
Play • 1 hr 35 min
With its eco-friendly paper towels, diapers, and cleansers, Seventh Generation was one of the first—and most successful—green household brands to hit the market. But in the early 1990s, just a few years after it began as a scrappy mail-order catalog, its two founders had a bitter falling out. Alan Newman and Jeffrey Hollender have barely spoken since that time, but they generously agreed to come on the show to talk to Guy about the business they were both passionate about, and the delicate nature of partnership.

474: David Eagleman | The Inside Story of the Ever-Changing Brain
David Eagleman (@davideagleman) is a neuroscientist at Stanford, CSO of sensory substitution technology company NeoSensory, host of Emmy-nominated PBS/BBC series The Brain, and author of Livewired: The Inside Story of the Ever-Changing Brain. What We Discuss with David Eagleman: * Like organisms in a forest, the multicellular components of your brain are as much in competition with one another as they are in cooperation. * How your sensory landscape adapts to utilize what's useful and discard what's not as you learn new skills. * Why David believes the nature vs. nurture debate is dead (and that Darwin might owe Lamarck a bit of an apology). * How neglect can irreparably shape the brain of a child, and what this can teach us about the way different generations learn about, process, and behave in the world. * How senses like sight and hearing can be translated by technology for people without a native ability to process them, and why we'll be able to invent entirely new senses with the help of technology. * And much more...

#325: A New Way to Think About Addiction | Annie Grace
The stereotypical depiction of fighting addiction makes it seem highly unpleasant: White knuckling, sweating it out, detoxing, going cold turkey–you get the picture. This applies to classical addiction, and also to the less dangerous (but nonetheless nettlesome) unhealthy habits and compulsions that we all wrestle with. My guest today takes a very different approach. She aims to harness the pleasure centers of the brain as a way to handle addictive habits—and, controversially, she doesn’t believe you need to go cold turkey on alcohol, which is the main intoxicant she has targeted. Her name is Annie Grace, and she is the author of a very popular book called This Naked Mind. (Shout out to my friend and colleague Steve Baker, the executive producer of Nightline, who has gotten a lot out of Annie’s work, and turned me on to her.) This episode is the second in a two-part series we’re doing this week on addiction. If you missed it, go check out Monday’s episode with Buddhist teacher Kevin Griffin, who has worked to combine the dharma and the 12 steps. Speaking of the 12 steps, many people in the AA community are quite critical of Annie Grace, and she will address that in our conversation. We also cover: Her personal story, and why she now drinks as much alcohol as she wants to–which is none at all; the connection between her approach and Evelyn Tribole’s “intuitive eating”; and her thoughts on working with other addictions, including nicotine, gambling, shopping, pornography, and video games. Also: We would appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to help us out by answering a new survey about your experience with this podcast. We want to hear about your experience with our show, because we care deeply, and we are always looking for ways to improve. Please go to https://www.tenpercent.com/survey. Thank you!

1448: The Starbucks Predicament by Lauren Keys of Trip Of A Lifestyle
Lauren Keys of Trip of a Lifestyle contemplates the Starbucks predicament. Episode 1448: The Starbucks Predicament by Lauren Keys of Trip Of A Lifestyle Since graduating from college in 2012, Steven has developed a healthy obsession with personal finance. Although he has no formal training in the field, he’s taught himself a lot about saving and investing over the years. In addition to the normal stuff, he’s also come up with quite a few unusual ways to make extra money, from credit card hacking, to buying and selling stuff on eBay, to ridiculous ventures like taking advantage of loopholes at casinos. After finding satisfaction in helping friends and family prepare for retirement, pay off their student loans, and navigate the confusing world of home buying, Steven wanted to share his thoughts on personal finance more publicly. His main motivation for blogging stems from a desire to help more people become financially free and change their lives for the better.
