  Park City-based Dr. Robert Miller has been a board certified orthodontist for over 30 years and also spent 25 years as a ski patroller. He’s seen his share of dental injuries and concussions and he’s a believer in the benefit to athletes of custom mouth guards to reduce the incidence of both. He joins us now to cite the research and tell participants, coaches and parents why they should, as well as how to, equip athletes in contact sports with the most effective means of mouth guard protection.

Nick Chater is the professor of behavioral science at the Warwick Business School. He argues in his new book The Mind is Flat: The Remarkable Shallowness of the Improvising Brain, that our brain is not governed by the unconscious mind or by mysterious depths, but instead it improvises the present based on the experiences of the past.  So, if this is true, he also argues that we can build a new present based on what we have accumulated from our past. Pretty simple?  Tune in to listen to this engaging dialogue.
