NSP013 – The Stories They Tell Us About Diet

Diet and nutrition are important to everybody, but when you make an earnest attempt to improve your knowledge in this area, it’s often confusing, contradictory and ultimately discouraging. There seem to be so many contradictory studies and points of view that it’s impossible to determine what diet is truly healthy for a human.

Is there an agenda at play? And how do we find a story that makes sense of it all?

In this episode of Narratively Speaking, Harv shares his own battles and tries to sort out the truth from the nonsense.

NSP012 – Stories We Tell About Reality

Elon Musk looks like he’s never toked on a doobie before, and yet he’s telling us, completely sober, that we’re probably living within multiple nested computer simulations, like Russian nesting dolls.

What is he banging on about? Is there any evidence for this? And why does this idea keep surfacing in popular media?

Let’s see if we can sort it out…

NSP011 – The Stories They Tell Us About Mind Control

Oooh, Mind Control! It’s one of those stories that is pretty hard to believe, so much so that most don’t give it much consideration.

But is there any truth behind the myth? Let’s look at it more closely…

NSP010 – The Stories We Tell About Our Jobs (Part 2)

The only thing worse than having a job is not having one. But what happens when robots and AI take all our jobs? Is there a way to survive in a world without jobs?

This is where the establishment narrative falls apart…

NSP009 – The Stories We Tell About Our Jobs (Part 1)

The only thing worse than having a job is not having one. Why does it seem such a rarity that people are employed doing something they enjoy? Why do we feel compelled to work a job at all?

It’s all down to story…

NSP008 – The Stories We Tell About The Illuminati

The Illuminati, an all powerful, mysterious group of anonymous shadowy figures with designs on full spectrum dominance of the entire planet.

But are they real, or is this just another story told by conspiracy theorists with nothing better to do? Let’s dig in!

NSP007 – The Stories We Tell About Fame

Fame seems to be an almost irresistible attraction for many people. But why do we place value on the attention and adoration of large numbers of people, when almost every story we’re ever told about fame is a negative one?

Let’s examine some of the stories we tell about fame…

NSP006 – The Stories We Tell About Death

Death is one of the fundamental things any self-aware sentient human has to come to grips with. But how do we do that, when all evidence seems to indicate that death is final, and there is nothing beyond?

Of course, that’s where story comes in…

NSP005 – Stories We Hold Onto

Sometimes we protect our stories against all reason and evidence.

But do we really need the stories that originally inspired positive ideas to be validated? Does having facts debunked make the beliefs that arose from them any less useful?

And what if you can’t let go of a story that’s untrue?
