I’m excited to announce our newest podcast — Brain Science!
Brain Science is a podcast for the curious. Are you curious?! We’re exploring the inner-workings of the human brain to understand behavior change, habit formation, mental health, and being human. It’s Brain Science applied — not just how does the brain work, but how do we apply what we know about the brain to transform our lives.
Welcome to Mireille Reece 👋
I might be slightly biased, but one of the most exciting this about this new podcast is who I get to co-host with — Mireille Reece. She’s an actual doctor!
Mireille is a practicing Psychologist with a doctorate in Clinical Psychology (abbreviated to Psy.D.). She’s a working mom, reads tons of books, and she’s super passionate about helping people live life as their best selves.
A big part of living as our best selves is understanding the choices we make, why we make them, and healthy ways to change. We created this podcast because we want to empower people with an applied understanding of the human brain (our humanity) and the ways in which we’re all the same, despite our seemingly significant differences.
Frequency and expectations 🚦
We launched with four episodes in the feed and plan to ship a new episode every two weeks or so (a schedule we’re calling bi-weekly-ish).
Here’s a peek at topics we’re highly interested in and plan to explore.
- Learning to hack your brain
- Respect, empathy, compassion
- Habit formation and behavior change
- Emotional intelligence
- Mental health and depression
- Books, research, and resources
If you have topics or suggestions, please get in touch.

- Invite someone to the community where we gather in the #BrainScience channel.
