On this week's episode we start with a message from Stephen Hawking. Then, it's News & Views featuring new research about exercise's affects on the brain; details about physical activity levels within the Hadza hunter-gatherer tribe; and how being in nature benefits human beings. The Moment of Paleo segment offers food for thought about overthinking, and After the Bell features a neuroscientist's insights on exercise and creativity. Enjoy the show!
