Today on The Pretty Intense Podcast, we have Dr. Andrew Huberman, neuroscientist, and tenured Professor in the Department of Neurobiology at Stanford University. He hosts a hugely popular podcast called "The Huberman Lab". Dr. Huberman is so brilliant, so fascinating. Dopamine was the first big topic we talked about. How it is the main chemical motivator in our body. We talked about how that need for dopamine plays into relationships. What creates connection, and why we choose the partners we do. We talked about grief. The ending of relationship through break-up or even death. We have so much we can learn from Dr. Huberman, and he is on a mission to share his knowledge to help as many people as he can in his lifetime. We hope you enjoy todays special Episode.
