We’re in the midst of recording some fascinating interviews for upcoming episodes of Ready Radio.
Last Thursday I got to talk to acclaimed TIME Magazine writer Amanda Ripley, who authored the book The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes – and Why. After we mentioned her book on our last podcast, I just couldn’t resist giving her a call to dig a little further into the unexpected ways the human brain responds to emergency situations.
I picked her brain about things like super-human strength, super-weird visual distortions, and other funky side-effects of sudden stress. Now I’m sorting through the goldmine of cool facts, and piecing together the interview you’ll hear on this Thursday’s episode. Stay tuned!
