PODCASTS DESIGN MATTERS WITH DEBBIE MILLMAN Episode: Tim Ferriss His 4-hour-everything followers may be sur- prised to hear Tim Ferriss open up about his experience with depression and suicidal ideation while still a postgrad at Princeton University. But, just as with the more hackable areas of life, Ferriss has a straight-up view of exactly what the struggle is: “It’s very difficult to think your way out of things that you didn’t logically think your way into.” He shares some of his favorite ways to stay well, including: “curating” his social circle, a writing exercise for overcoming fears, and work- ing out really, really hard. Another of his keys to maintain recovery? Daily meditation, as an op- portunity for “observing your thoughts without getting tumbled by them.” Q Episode: How Sarah Slean’s musical and philosophical evolution led her to Metaphysics Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah Slean shares how she was practicing meditation one night while riding the subway home, when she felt a “very menacing presence” beside her: “This terrifying- looking human being with this harsh look in his eyes, like he was going to hur t me and enjoy it.” Instead of reacting to a natural spike of anxiety, Slean struck up a friendly conversation. Gradually, the stranger opened up to her about his hardships. Their brief chat ended in exchanging email ad- dresses; years later, Slean would write a song (on her newest album, Metaphysics) that reflects the profound effect each had on the other. FREAKONOMICS RADIO Episode: Why Is My Life So Hard? Psychology professors Tom Gilovich, of Cornell University, and Shai Davidai, of The New School for Social Research, here investigate human- kind’s pessimistic tendencies: Why do we often think we have it worse in life than anyone else? And why is it so hard to practice gratitude con- sistently? Their “headwinds/tailwinds asymme- try” theory says we are biased to underestimate what helps and overestimate what hinders us. If we can learn to notice “the invisibles,” taken- for-granted things that boost spirits—like having coffee with a friend—we’ll feel happier, longer.
