Ways to Connect

  Adam Becker, PhD, joins John and Lynn. Becker has written, What Is Real?: The Unfinished Quest for the Meaning of Quantum Physics. Modern technology today is driven by quantum theory - from the LEDs and microchips in your phone to the nuclear hearts of the most distant space probes, yet most physicists don’t agree on what quantum physics actually means...stay tuned for this lively discussion.

Cool Science Radio speaks with Ryan Wright, a sophomore at Park City High School, who will be President of the Engineering Club next year. We talk with Ryan about how he first became interested in engineering, his plans for the Engineering Club and what is ticking in the minds of inspired young people. 

Author, entrepreneur, inventor, producer, Broadway performer, blogger, mom, and wife Randi Zuckerberg joins The Mountain Life to disucss her new book, Pick Three: You Can Have it All (Just Not Every Day.) Randi says the key to finding your footing is to embrace the unbalanced nature of life,  narrow your focus, and don't try to do it all every day. 

Art therapist Jill Johnson, owner of The Paint Mixer, and Hadley Dynak of the Park City/Summit County Arts Council join Tim and Lynn for a discussion on how the connection of art and culture in our community also weaves in mental health as May Mental Health Awareness Month draws to a close.  

Tim Henney and Lynn Ware Peek speak with mental health therapist, Sarah Caldwell CSW, of the Park City office of The Healing Group. With one in eight new mothers experiencing postpartum depression, Sarah addresses this issue and others, like pregnancy anxiety.  She leads walks each Wednesday at 10am from Willow Creek Park.

Today we speak with a 17-year-old mathematician, Agnijo Banergee, whose IQ is higher than that of Albert Einstein or Stephen Hawking. He is joined by his math tutor and co-author, David Darling. The pair have written a book called Weird Math: A Teenage Genius and His Teacher Reveal the Strange Connections between Math and Everyday Life. 


Local resident Roger Burrows joins Cool Science Radio. Burrows has written many books, and is a mathematician and an inventor. His new book  is 3D Thinking in Design and Architecture from Antiquity to the Future. The book describes ways in which ideas of the past can be transformed into new concepts for the future. Burrows hope for the book is that readers will be able to walk through historical sites in the Americas and around the world and get a lot more out of the experience - as well as, hopefully, being inspired.

Marc and Angel Chernoff discuss their new book, Getting Back to Happy: Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Reality, and Turn Your Trials into Triumphs. Together, they are the creators of Marc and Angel Hack Life, which is recognized by Forbes magazine as one of the most popular personal development blogs.
