This follow-up episode is a free-flowing Grooving Session where Tim and Kurt chat about their discussion with Seth Stephens-Davidowitz (Episode 246). You’re more than welcome to listen to this as a stand alone episode, but we recommend first tuning in to our interview with Seth, and then joining us here for some banter about Seth’s work.
Questions we discuss:
- Are we more likely to be untruthful in certain contexts?
- Is lying a useful delusion?
- Can we ever justify lies?
- How do the connections we make with others affect our relationships and our children?
- Does where we are born really influence us the rest of our lives?
- What traits should we definitely look for when dating?
- How is our brain influenced by music?
Tim and Kurt chat about these questions and more in this Grooving Session, which follows on from our interview episode with Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, author of bestselling book Everybody Lies (https://amzn.to/32ULlgD).
