Ways to Connect

Dr. Brad Reedy, co-founder of Evoke Therapy Programs, author of The Journey of the Heroic Parent, and nationally recognized expert on raising resilient children amidst today’s societal challenges. Dr Reedy speaks on Monday, September 17, from 6-8pm at the Blair Education Center of the Park City Hospital. The title of the talk is: Raising Resilient Children Amidst Today's Societal Challenges. 

We’re joined by author Linda Kay Klein for an exploration of the religious purity culture presented in her book Pure: Inside the Evangelical Movement That Shamed a Generation of Young Women and How I Broke Free.

Dr. Robert Zembroski joins The Mountain Life. "Dr. Z" is a specialist in functional medicine, a clinical nutritionist and a cancer survivor who writes about how to achieve greater health as he did in rebuilding himself after chemo and radiation. His new book is called Rebuild: Five Proven Steps to Move From Diagnosis to Recovery and Be Healthier Than Before.

 

 

Chris Bailey joins the show. Bailey is a productivity expert who writes about how to be more focused and how to condition yourself away from distraction. His new book is Hyper Focus: How to be More Productive in a World of Distraction.

 Neuroscientist Dr. Dean Burnett joins the show to talk about the science behind what makes us happy. The implicit drive to find happiness is behind almost everything we do - whether it’s finding a job, falling in love, starting a family, or watching television. Burnett explores this science in an accessible, compelling, and entertaining manner in his book, Happy Brain: Where Happiness Comes From, and Why.

 

John and Lynn speak with Paul Corson, Director of Entrepreneurship at the University of Utah’s TVC (Technology and Venture Commercialization). The University of Utah’s Center for Technology & Venture Commercialization helps bring inventions to market -  they help turn ideas into more than just ideas. The Center does a lot of matchmaking—connecting executives to companies to help run them, connecting inventions with licensees, connecting companies to funding.

Dr. Phil Davidson of Davidson Orthopedics is a knee and shoulder specialist and is also known for cartilage restoration and joint resurfacing. He joins the show today to discuss “bio-orthopedics," which helps ligament, bone, and cartilage healing and treating arthritis. Dr. Davidson also talks about a holistic approach to stem cell therapy and several other agents like hyaluronic acid and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to heal injuries. 

Mara Altman wants to destigmatize everything weird, gross, and just downright unlucky that happens to women’s bodies. And to destigmatize, you have to talk about it … or in this case write a book about it and go on a book tour. From unwanted facial hair, to the myriad shapes and sizes of breasts to overly sweaty armpits, Mara is hilarious, downright frank, and I have to say, really refreshing.  Her book is Gross Anatomy. 

 

Chad Brackelsberg, Executive Director of the Utah Avalanche Center, joins Tim and Lynn to highlight the 25th annual Black Diamond fundraiser on September 13, to talk about what the Center is working on for education of backcountry enthusiasts, and a new video that underscores the importance of knowing before you go.

Cool Science Radio and Intermountain Park City Hospital join forces for day #4 of the KPCW Summer Pledge Drive. Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Taylor Hanton and Communications specialist Jenny Jones join the show to talk about the hospital's  level of service including a Tele NICU (newborn intensive care unit). Guest co-host Tim Henney joins Lynn Ware Peek to ask for your support of KPCW.
