Episode Description

Kathryn interviews Health Advocate Merilee Kern MBA.Implementing lasting and meaningful self-care behavioral changes can prove challenging, if not seemingly impossible, for some. Gamifying the process—especially that related to enhanced fitness and weight-loss with elements of fun, competition and having some form of “skin in the game,” and financially rewarding the achievements in kind—is now well-proven to be a powerful catalyst. Gamification is an effective way to level up efforts to lose those unwanted lbs. Health advocate Merilee Kern shares information on Healthy Wage, a website and app that provides cash incentives for reaching your weight loss goals. The company was founded in response to academic research that proves even small cash rewards triple the effectiveness of weight-loss programs; that people are more effective at losing weight when their own money is at risk; and that social networks play a large role in the spread of obesity, and will likely play a large role in reversing obesity. She is a former fitness champion and her articles have been featured in Forbes, Newsweek, FastCompany, ThriveGlobal, RollingStone and a wide array of other online and print publications.Kathryn also interviews Author Diane Rosenfield.Harvard law professor Diane Rosenfeld has made it her life’s work to address the problem of patriarchal violence. And after years of advocacy, she found the secret to revolutionary change in an unlikely source: the bonobos, our closest evolutionary cousins. These animals have done the unthinkable: they have evolutionarily eliminated male sexual coercion—and they did it by forming female alliances. Now Rosenfeld introduces a framework that promises to achieve something equally profound for human society: to collapse the scaffolding of patriarchy. Drawing on the lessons of her legal and policy work, Rosenfeld powerfully argues against our current set of timid and disjointed “solutions” to the myriad problems of patriarchy. Her breakthrough research has appeared in the NYTimes, Washington Post, Glamour, and more. Her op-eds have been featured in the Washington Post, Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, cnn.com, and the Harvard Crimson.
