First Segment (Aired Janurary 9, 2020):
The Joy of Movement is Dr. Kelly McGonigal's new book; it's a 'love letter' to movement and exploration of what is most human about us. Through her trademark blend of science and storytelling, McGonigal draws on insights from neuroscience, psychology, anthropology, and evolutionary biology, to clear up some common misconceptions about the brain on exercise.
Along the way, Dr. McGonigal tells the stories of incredible examples of how movement can change your life, from Tanzania, where one of the last hunter-gatherer tribes on the planet live, to a dance class at Juilliard for people with Parkinson's disease.
