Wow, am I excited! I have been invited to co-host an episode of the Runners Round Table Podcast later this month. So everyone will be able to hear my voice (not sure how exciting that is) as I participate in my first podcast EVER! I am a bit nervous, and will try not to make a fool out of myself. (Some would say “Too Late”.)
Subject: Exercise and the Brain
When: Tuesday March 16th, 2010 at 5:00pm EST
Where: Will be hosted LIVE on TalkShoe
I think it will be an exciting and informational subject around Ginger Campbell, M.D. and her podcast “Brain Science Podcast” who will also be participating. I recently listened to a few of her podcasts on the subject of exercise or playing and how it effects the brain. From her podcast blog: “Dr. Campbell is an experienced emergency physician with a long-standing interest in mind-body medicine, the brain, and consciousness”. I highly recommend listening to her, and if you are interested in the subject I was drawn to you can listen to three of her podcasts that deal specifically with the subject.
- Episode 33 – interview with Harvard physician, Dr. John Ratey about his new book Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain.
- Episode 45 – Dr. John Ratey discusses ADD and how it can be controlled through having goals, such as athletes “having a mission”.
- Episode 60 – Ginger Campbell, MD interviews Dr. Stuart Brown, author of Play: How It Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul.
