The Female & Male Brain with Bestselling Author Dr. Louann Brizendine

Jun 15, 2022

Watch Episode 182 with Dr. Louann Brizendine:

Our podcast guest, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Louann Brizendine, joins us on the Switch4Good podcast to talk about why males and females communicate and process emotions differently. In this episode, Dr. Louann talks to Dotsie and Alexandra about her books, The Male Brain and The Female Brain, and how they have helped readers navigate relationships with their partners, spouses, friends, and family members around the world. Dr. Brizendine founded the Woman’s Mood and Hormone Clinic at UCSF, and then went on to write another book called The Upgrade, which explains how the female brain gets “upgraded” in midlife. She believes that this time in a female’s life brings more clarity and a laser-like sense of purpose if you know how to tap into it.

Join us today to discuss how to harness that new “upgraded” brain power, and navigate relationships with life-long partners, hormones, depression, menopause, and more.

Your Last Bad Day with Meditation Teacher Michael O’Brien

Your Last Bad Day with Meditation Teacher Michael O’Brien

On a summer morning in 2001, today’s guest, Michael O’Brien, had what he refers to as his last bad day. While out on a morning bike ride, an SUV traveling at 40 mph crossed into his lane and struck him head-on, forever altering his life as he knew it. Doctors were shocked that he survived and told him that he’d likely never ride again or even walk with comfort. Yet, in 2022, Michael completed a 41-day, 3,600-mile bike ride across the United States, proving all of them wrong.
