A researcher and a doctor help us better understand the impact of trauma and adverse childhood experiences. Then, this week’s edition of Food Friday features the flavor thesaurus and paring flavors in the kitchen.

Featured in this Show

  • Why are gorillas so good at dealing with early life trauma?

    We talk to the author of new research finding that gorillas are exceptionally resilient. Gorillas — unlike other primates and long-lived mammals — do not seem to have long term negative outcomes after experiencing trauma early in life. We learn why, and what this may reveal about trauma in humans.

  • Food Friday: Challenge yourself with more creative food pairings

    British food writer and author Niki Segnit joins us to share some plant-led imaginative food pairings on this week’s edition of Food Friday. Some examples include: coffee and fennel, chocolate and eggplant, and plum and kidney bean.
