Publisher's Summary

How can we change our behaviours? The first step is understanding our habits. For better or worse, habits are the invisible building blocks of daily life. Research suggests that about 40% of what we do is repeated almost daily and yet most of the time we aren’t really aware of what’s happening.

In this series, neuroscientist Ash Ranpura and comedian Alice Fraser deep dive into the science of behaviour change. They want to find out how we can make good habits and how we can break bad ones. Along the way they meet the man who invented the science of habits, talk to a woman trying to change the world through figuring out how to make behaviour change stick and try out some of the latest tricks and techniques designed to help you change your own behaviours.

This is the one series you should have in your headphones if you want to understand how to make positive changes in your life.

Very useful for developing new habits or altering small irritating habits

Fun, simple, and lots of easily applied tips to developing/breaking simple everyday habits!

Re: addictions: Tips can be helpful for one who is coming out of addiction but likely only as an extra reminder for one who is already participating in a rehab program.

Podcast

Felt equivalent to a free podcast. Don’t feel it’s honestly worth redeeming a credit for.

Annoying

None of the information provided in this series was new or particularly insightful to me. I found the presenters annoyingly upbeat and there were way too many anecdotes and very little "meat" - also the volume was all over the place. I made it through 5 but abandoned the rest.

has potential

Feels like a podcast with acting rather than real interactions, which makes it weird, but the info is great for beginners looking for information to start with, on habit psychology. Topics are only lightly touched on though. I was hoping for more.

Interesting

I really like the co-hosts! They have interesting topics and people who work in that particular field talk about the theme of that episode. I find them very enjoyable!
