How to Spot Bullsh*t When You Hear It & How to Diffuse and Resolve Any Conflict
Listen now
What’s the difference between an antique, a collectible and a vintage item? This episode begins with a brief and helpful explanation. Since we don’t swear on this podcast, we won’t use the word that BS stands for - but we all know what it is. As you are aware, a lot of people fling BS around to try to make themselves look good or try to sell you something. So, how do you tell what is true, what is a lie and what is BS? Listen to John Petrocelli a professor of psychology at Wake Forest University and author of a book called The Life Saving Science of Detecting BullSh*t ( John spends a lot of time researching and talking about BS and once you hear what he has to say, you will be a much better BS detector.  While we all know friendship is important, people have fewer friends today than in previous generations and many of us live more isolated lives than ever before. According to one psychologist, what we need are friends who have “refrigerator rights.” Listen and find what that means and why it is important. Source: Dr. Will Miller author of Refrigerator Rights ( It sure seems people are more willing to argue, disagree and get upset with each other today than in the past. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all just get along? Perhaps we can. Or at least we could move in that direction, according to Bill Eddy who is an attorney and mediator and author of the book Calming Upset People With EAR ( Bill is kind of a real-life Ted Lasso, if you watch that TV show. He doesn’t get upset, people don’t really rattle him or make him upset, he just works toward resolving the problem and getting on with life. I think you will enjoy what he has to say.  PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS! We really like The Jordan Harbinger Show!
