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.

Fiber is our Favorite F Word with Diabetes Dietitian & Author Lauren Plunkett

Fiber is our Favorite F Word with Diabetes Dietitian & Author Lauren Plunkett

Who says you have to be defined by a type 1 diabetes diagnosis? Who says your life can’t continue to be just as rich or fulfilling? Certainly not today’s guest. Lauren Plunkett is a registered dietitian, a diabetes education specialist, a fitness instructor, a dynamic national speaker, a plant-based nutrition advocate, and a shining beacon of positive energy, exemplifying how to live your best life with type 1 diabetes. And she does it all with so much empathy, a keen intellect, and a smile so radiant I swear you could see it from ten miles away. Lauren is also the author of the book Type One Determination, which I love because it’s from the perspective of someone who’s both a patient and an expert, offering applicable strategies to anyone suffering from type 1 diabetes. Some of our listeners might even recognize her name for her contribution to our very own Switch4Good blog.

From Prison Rags to Plant Based Riches with David Israel

Okay, today’s guest has an incredibly compelling story. He’s someone who truly knows how to turn adversity into opportunity. Uber-successful serial entrepreneur, David Israel, has owned, among other things, a nightclub, a jewelry store, a chain of upscale pawnshops, and a maintenance company. But what’s most interesting, is that in 2011, while enduring the most personally challenging period in his life, he founded POP! Gourmet Foods, taking the snack industry by storm and forming partnerships with globally recognized retailers, nationally and internationally.
