  1. How Social Media May Be Ruining Your Life (Cal Newport)

    Think about how often you check one of your many social media accounts. Chances are you spend a pretty good portion of your time, productivity, and brain power participating in these apps each day. Though it may seem harmless, or even beneficial, the ubiquitous use of social media is working against our health. Our brains evolved to process social cues from real people; the more we’re on social media the less we’re having real-world interactions that challenge and support our cognition.

    My guest on this week’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy has never had a social media account—and he’s managed to thrive! Cal Newport is an associate professor of computer science at Georgetown University and writes about the impact of technological innovations on our culture. Newport is the author of six books, including Digital Minimalism and Deep Work. As we dive into the topic of social media, Cal shares his expertise on how it’s impacting public health and culture in ways much greater than you might expect.

  2. The Law and Politics of Brexit (Professor Federico Fabbrini)

    In this podcast, we are joined by Professor Federico Fabbrini to discuss the ways in which Brexit is having a profound impact on the politico-legal landscape both within the UK and internationally. Professor Fabbrini provides insight into the biggest challenges facing the UK government as it attempts to pass a deal through parliament, and also examines issues such as the Irish backstop, the implications of a no-deal Brexit, and the formation of the Independent Group that has recently formed of defecting MPs from both sides of the political divide.

    Professor Fabbrini offers predictions on Theresa May’s strategy as we enter the final few weeks of negotiations, and places the issue into the context of the wider European project, which is facing a plurality of its own crises quite apart from Brexit.

    Executive Producer/Editor: Harry Orme Host: Kate Roche
