Today’s podcast is about excess. It comes in many forms, whether it’s binge watching, social media, or even fast food.

What are the different forms of excess we should be mindful of, and when is it okay?

We’ll talk with Paul Brewer, author of a recent study that looked into the effects of satirical television news on Climate Change perceptions.

We’ll also chat with Niraj Naik, former pharmacist who now helps heal others through holistic practices such as, music therapy, ayurveda and meditation.

Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Ken Bretschneider, CEO of a startup called The Void–which will take gaming to a new dimension with a set of immersive virtual reality theme parks.

Be sure to watch our video when we take our question of the week out to the streets!

Also you can watch our interview with Niraj Naik on his holistic work to help wean people off addictive, sugary drinks like Coca-cola. You can learn more about his practices at TheRenegadePharmacist.com
