    Podcast Summary

    • Mint Mobile's Affordable Wireless Plans and Jazz Music's Emotional ImpactMint Mobile offers budget-friendly wireless plans by selling services online and Jazz music, including jazz, can create emotions through dedicated neural pathways, potentially emerging before spoken language.

      Mint Mobile offers affordable wireless plans by selling services online and cutting out retail store costs. This week on Two Bears One Cave, we discussed how Mint Mobile's offer of $15 a month for a three-month unlimited wireless plan seems too good to be true. However, after speaking with the company, it was clear there's no hidden catch. Dr. Andrew Huberman, a renowned professor and podcaster, joined the conversation to discuss the impact of jazz music on the brain. He explained that music, including jazz, might have emerged before spoken language due to its ability to create emotions. The brain responds to music through dedicated circuits, and jazz, in particular, can tap into our breathing apparatus, creating a unique emotional experience. So, in summary, Mint Mobile provides budget-friendly wireless plans, and jazz music has a profound effect on our emotions through dedicated neural pathways.

    • Music's profound impact on our bodies and mindsMusic resonates with our bodies, evokes emotions, and communicates intent across cultures, improving cognition and tapping into our primal responses

      Music has a profound impact on our bodies and minds, making us an integral part of the musical experience. Our bodies resonate with the frequencies of music we listen to, making us internal instruments. Music is a universal language that can evoke emotions and communicate intent across cultures. Neuroscientific research shows that people who can't speak due to conditions like aphasia can still sing, demonstrating separate circuits in the brain dedicated to music. Listening to music, especially live, has been shown to improve cognition, and the deep resonant impact on our bodies goes beyond just hearing the lyrics. Even the facial expressions we make while listening to music are fundamental and shared across species. Music taps into our emotions and primal responses, making it an essential and powerful form of communication.

    • Early musical training shapes brain developmentEarly musical training enhances neural connections and leads to lifelong cognitive advantages, including improved communication skills and creativity.

      Early musical training significantly impacts brain development and connectivity, leading to cognitive advantages that last into adulthood. This is due to the enhanced neural connections formed during instrumental and vocal learning, particularly when done in a group setting before the age of six. Moreover, when it comes to playing jazz or improvising music, the connection between the brain and fingers is crucial. Musicians like Bert and Tom don't just see the piano as keys; instead, they view it as a voice they use to communicate and take their audience on a journey. To tap into this state of improvisation and free play, it's essential to practice and learn the fundamentals, then let go of conscious control and trust your instincts. The brain, primarily a prediction machine, thrives on familiarity and expectations, but breaking free from these constraints can lead to remarkable creative expression.

    • Our brains respond to novelty and unexpected elementsUnderstanding brain's response to novelty can create engaging experiences and shed light on addictive potential

      Our brains are wired to respond to novelty and unexpected elements with increased attention and motivation, which is facilitated by the neurochemical dopamine. This response is not limited to music or comedy, but can be applied to various aspects of life, including monetary value and art. The ability to tap into this fundamental aspect of brain function can create engaging experiences, whether it's through crowd work in comedy or creating music that follows certain rules while incorporating unexpected elements. Understanding this neurochemical response can also shed light on the addictive potential of certain experiences and substances.

    • Art challenges perceptions and evokes emotionsArt, whether visual or performance-based, creates unique connections by challenging perceptions, evoking strong emotions, and pushing boundaries through unexpected elements and comedy.

      Art, whether it's visual or performance-based, has the power to challenge our perceptions and evoke strong emotions. The use of unexpected elements, such as upside-down perspectives or taboo subjects, can create a sense of tension and release, much like a roller coaster ride. Comedy, in particular, thrives on breaking unspoken rules and pushing boundaries, creating a unique connection between performer and audience. This shared experience, filled with laughter and surprise, can bring people closer together, even if they have never met before. Ultimately, art is a form of spoken intercourse, a way to communicate and connect on a deeper level, transcending the boundaries of language and culture.

    • Appreciating the Authenticity of Ozark and Jason BatemanThe speaker admires Ozark for its authenticity, Jason Bateman's acting and directing, and her personal transformation inspired by his weight loss journey.

      The speaker expresses a deep appreciation for the authenticity of certain TV shows, particularly Ozark, and the impact they've had on her perspective. Despite some misunderstandings, she admires Jason Bateman's acting and directing abilities, and has recently undergone a health transformation inspired by his public weight loss journey. She also mentions her fascination with the realism portrayed in Ozark, contrasting it with typical pornographic dialogue. Additionally, she reveals her past struggles with excessive drinking and poor eating habits, which led her to adopt a ketogenic diet after consulting a cardiologist.

    • A month without alcohol and keto diet leads to sleep and well-being improvementsConsider giving up alcohol for potential long-term brain health benefits, as both moderate consumption and alcoholism can negatively impact brain health.

      The speaker has been on a ketogenic diet and has stopped drinking alcohol for a month, leading to significant improvements in his sleep and overall well-being. However, it's unclear which factor is causing the greater impact, as both the diet and the absence of alcohol could be contributing to his positive experiences. The speaker also shared his personal history with alcohol use, acknowledging that everyone's relationship with alcohol is different and that it can have varying effects on people. He emphasized that alcohol is a poison and that, for those who are not alcoholics, moderate consumption is still detrimental to long-term brain health. The speaker expressed his hope that the listener, who has also struggled with weight and creativity, would consider giving up alcohol permanently for the potential benefits.

    • Understanding the unique effects of alcohol and cannabis on individualsInformed decisions about substance use require acknowledging potential benefits and risks, individual differences, and consulting healthcare professionals.

      Making informed decisions about substance use, particularly alcohol and cannabis, is crucial for individual health and wellbeing. While some people can use these substances safely and responsibly, others may face negative consequences. Professor X, in our discussion, emphasized the potential benefits of abstaining from alcohol for extended life and enhanced robustness. He also acknowledged the therapeutic value of cannabis for certain conditions, such as epilepsy, but warned of the risks associated with high THC strains for individuals with predispositions to mental health issues. Ultimately, understanding the unique neurochemical reactions and individual differences is essential to make informed choices. As a reminder, always consult healthcare professionals for personalized advice.

    • Personal control and quitting alcohol leads to presence and groundednessQuitting alcohol can lead to positive changes in demeanor, admiration from loved ones, and improved well-being. Personal control and support play a role in making the change.

      Taking control of personal habits, such as quitting alcohol, can lead to feelings of presence and groundedness. The speaker's decision to not drink was met with admiration from her daughters, who noticed a positive change in her demeanor. The speaker's aversion to being told what to do played a role in her decision, but she acknowledged the importance of support and community in making a change. The speaker also shared her respect for those who have overcome alcohol addiction and the benefits of combining sobriety with a healthy lifestyle. Ultimately, the decision to quit drinking was a personal choice made for the speaker's well-being.

    • Overcoming Fears Through Physical Activity and Personal ChallengesPhysical activity and facing personal challenges can help alleviate anxiety and negative emotions, but it's important to do so responsibly and safely.

      Working out and pushing oneself physically can help alleviate anxiety and negative emotions, much like how some people turn to substances for temporary relief. However, the speaker acknowledges that the feeling of euphoria from working out is different from the experience of consuming alcohol or drugs, and that the latter can be a dangerous and ultimately harmful business transaction. The speaker shares personal experiences of facing fears, such as diving with Great White Sharks, and how those experiences challenged him to face his fears head-on. Ultimately, the speaker encourages taking risks and facing fears, but emphasizes the importance of doing so in a responsible and safe manner.

    • Importance of safety procedures during underwater activitiesNeglecting safety protocols can lead to severe consequences, including running out of air surrounded by dangerous marine life. Always check safety equipment before diving and communicate effectively with team members.

      Safety procedures must be strictly followed during underwater activities, especially when using scuba equipment. The speaker's harrowing experience of running out of air while being surrounded by great white sharks underscores the importance of checking safety tanks before diving. Unfortunately, the divers had been sipping from the safety tanks on their way down, leaving the speaker without a breathing source when he needed it most. This incident highlights the potential consequences of neglecting safety protocols and the importance of teamwork and communication in such high-risk situations.

    • Overcoming Fears and ChallengesConfronting fears and challenges can lead to personal growth and the ability to overcome obstacles. Even if it's difficult or painful, facing your fears can help you move past limitations and achieve your goals.

      Confronting our fears and challenges head-on can lead to personal growth and an end to self-imposed limitations. The speaker shared his experience of cage diving with great white sharks, which was a significant fear he had to face. After this experience, he decided to stop taking unnecessary physical risks, but the experience was crucial in helping him move past a traumatic basketball injury. The injury required extensive rehabilitation, and the fear of jumping again was a major hurdle. However, by gradually facing this fear and regaining his ability to jump, he was able to return to basketball and continue his athletic pursuits. The speaker emphasized the importance of confronting fears and challenges, even if they are difficult or painful, as they can lead to personal growth and the ability to overcome obstacles.

    • Maintaining upper body balance and strength requires pushing and pulling movements, focusing on shoulders and upper back muscles, and taking time to recover.Upper body balance and strength rely on various movements, shoulder and upper back muscles, and recovery time. Adaptation and perseverance, as shown by Stevie Wonder, are crucial for overcoming challenges.

      Maintaining upper body balance and strength requires both pushing and pulling movements, particularly focusing on the shoulders and upper back muscles. Balance is crucial for the shoulder joint's health, as it's designed to move in multiple directions. Additionally, taking your time to recover and return to physical activities, especially after injuries or extended breaks, is essential. Furthermore, Stevie Wonder's story demonstrates the importance of adapting to challenges and redefining our perceptions. While blindness is often thought of as an inability to see, there are degrees and variations of vision loss. People with low vision or no vision can still navigate the world through a combination of sounds, touch, and other senses. Stevie Wonder's remarkable musical career is a testament to the human ability to adapt and thrive despite adversity.

    • Managing Anxiety with Deep BreathingDeep breathing is a simple yet effective technique to reduce anxiety. Practice taking a double inhale and exhale all air to promote relaxation and better breathing.

      Anxiety is a natural response that everyone experiences, but some people have better tools to manage it. Anxiety is the nervous system's attempt to move the body, and people who struggle with it may benefit from deliberate techniques to reduce it. One such technique is consciously practicing deep breathing, which involves taking a double inhale through the nose and exhaling all air out of the mouth. This can quickly help reduce anxiety. Additionally, avoiding under- or over-breathing, losing weight, and reducing alcohol consumption can also contribute to better breathing and reduced anxiety. The discussion also touched on the distractions and dangers of texting while driving, which can impair peripheral vision and increase the risk of accidents.

    • Improve sleep apnea and overall health through weight loss, weight training, and cardio exerciseEngage in weight loss, weight training, and consistent cardio exercise for better sleep apnea and overall health. Eat well, focus on minimally processed foods, and get regular health check-ups.

      Weight loss, weight training, and consistent cardio exercise are key to improving sleep apnea and overall health. The speaker emphasizes that everyone, regardless of size, should engage in these practices, as they can lead to weight loss, increased muscle, and better sleep. He also mentions the importance of eating well, focusing on minimally processed or non-processed foods, and getting regular health check-ups. The speaker's personal experience shows that these habits can lead to better health and feelings of wellness, even surpassing the levels experienced in younger years.

    • Coexisting with the Desire for Experiences and SobrietyIt's possible to cherish past experiences with alcohol while embracing sobriety. Seek support, find inspiration in others' journeys, and trust yourself to make the best choice for your personal growth.

      Sobriety and the desire for experiences, including those associated with alcohol, can coexist. The speaker acknowledges the benefits of sobriety but also cherishes the memories and feelings connected to past experiences with alcohol. They recognize the importance of seeking support from those who have gone through similar experiences and discovered new, valuable experiences in sobriety. The speaker also acknowledges the challenge of letting go of the past and the appeal of living in alternate realities, but ultimately, they believe in their ability to make the best choice for themselves, whether it's for self-love or defiance. The speaker admires those who have overcome alcohol issues and continued to succeed, such as Johnny Cash and Rick Rubin, and sees their journeys as inspiration for their own.

    • Continuous renewal and adaptation are crucial for personal growthDedication and a willingness to change are key to staying at the top of one's game, avoiding becoming repetitive and eventually fading away.

      Continuous renewal and adaptation are crucial for personal growth and avoiding becoming a mere imitation of oneself. The speaker used examples from music, skateboarding, and comedy to illustrate this point. Artists and performers who fail to adapt risk becoming repetitive and eventually fading away. Instead, dedication and a willingness to change are key to staying at the top of one's game. The speaker also emphasized the importance of being aware of this risk and taking steps to avoid it. By renewing oneself, one can avoid becoming a parody or a meme and continue to make a positive impact.

    • Friend's Success Story with Keto DietAchieve weight loss through diet plans like keto, intermittent fasting, and reducing complex carbs. Get enough protein, especially high-quality protein, for muscle repair. Stay hydrated for appetite control and overall health. Everyone responds differently to diets, find what works best for you.

      Weight loss can be achieved through various methods, including diet plans like keto, intermittent fasting, and reducing complex carbohydrate intake. The speaker shares his friend's success story with the keto diet and mentions the importance of getting enough protein, especially high-quality protein, for muscle repair. The speaker also emphasizes the importance of hydration for appetite control and overall health. Additionally, the speaker mentions that everyone's body responds differently to different diets, and what works best may vary from person to person.

    • Keto Diet and Berries or MarrowSome people on keto diet can tolerate and thrive on berries and meat, but intense workouts may require carbohydrate replenishment. Marrow is satisfying but addictive with carbs. Focus on whole, nutrient-dense foods for optimal health. Chris Palmer from Harvard Medical School advocates for using keto diet to treat psychiatric illness.

      The keto diet restricts fruit consumption due to high carb content, but some individuals can tolerate and thrive on a diet consisting mainly of berries and meat. However, after intense workouts, some people may need to replenish glycogen with carbohydrates like oatmeal or rice. Marrow, a high-fat food, can be delicious and satisfying but becomes addictive when paired with carbohydrates due to the stimulation of appetite. Some individuals find success with a low-carbohydrate diet, while others may require more carbohydrates for energy depending on their activity levels and metabolism. Ultimately, the key is to "earn your carbohydrates" through physical activity and to focus on whole, nutrient-dense foods for optimal health. Chris Palmer from Harvard Medical School is a notable figure in the field of treating psychiatric illness with a keto diet.

    • Linking mental health and metabolic disorders through dietA ketogenic or keto-ish diet, which eliminates simple sugars, may improve mental health issues like depression and bipolar disorder, leading to weight loss, increased energy, and mental clarity. Small, sustainable dietary changes can lead to significant improvements in overall well-being.

      Mental health issues, such as depression and bipolar disorder, may be linked to metabolic disorders. A growing field in psychology called metabolic psychiatry suggests that these conditions can be managed through diet, specifically a ketogenic or keto-ish diet that eliminates simple sugars. Many people report feeling amazing after trying this diet for 60 days, experiencing weight loss, increased energy, and improved mental clarity. The idea is to destroy the former version of oneself and create a new, healthier one. This dietary change, combined with good sleep and exercise, can lead to significant improvements in overall well-being, including career and relationship success. The key is to understand that there's no one-size-fits-all approach to diets, but making small, sustainable changes can lead to big results.

    • Mark's Emphasis on Positivity and Healthy HabitsMark, a marathon runner, emphasizes positivity and healthy habits like nose breathing, morning sun, and chewing food thoroughly. He's a fan of various practices and encourages independent research.

      Mark, a marathon runner and encourager, emphasizes the importance of positivity and healthy habits such as nose breathing, morning sun, and chewing food thoroughly. He's a fan of Andrew's work and shares his enthusiasm for various practices like sauna and cold plunge, but cautions against following blindly and encourages independent research. Mark also mentioned his inspiration for music comes from childhood experiences in church and creating music that evokes strong emotions. The Fun Apostles, his band, will be performing in Los Angeles in October and December, and he's organizing a concert for his Live in Love Foundation to help underprivileged youth.

    • Seek out new experiences and learning to keep your brain youngContinually seeking new inputs through learning and novel experiences fosters brain health and vitality

      Keeping your brain young and engaged involves seeking out new experiences and learning new things. This can be as simple as discovering new music or stepping out of your comfort zone to try something new. The process of learning and being exposed to novelty stimulates the brain and fosters new connectivity. As we age, it's easy to become set in our ways and cynical, but maintaining a sense of curiosity and openness can help keep us young and vital. Joe Strummer, the musician and philosopher, famously said "no input, no output," emphasizing the importance of continually seeking new inputs to keep our creativity and growth alive. So whether it's trying a new hobby, traveling to a new place, or simply listening to a new album, make an effort to keep learning and growing to keep your brain and spirit young.

    • Learning from challenges and frustrationEmbracing new experiences and associated frustration is essential for brain growth and skill improvement. Our brains change and adapt most effectively when faced with challenges, leading to personal growth and development.

      Embracing new experiences and the associated frustration is essential for brain growth and improvement in skills. The brain changes and learns most effectively when faced with challenges and difficulties. Comedians bombing on stage, for instance, may find it frustrating, but those experiences open the window for their brains to modify and adapt. The same principle applies to learning any new skill, whether it's flying a helicopter or shooting three-pointers. The frustration and challenges we face are signals for our brains to change and adapt, making us better at what we do. Therefore, it's crucial to try new things, learn new skills, and embrace the challenges that come with them, as they are the keys to personal growth and development. Additionally, it's important to find a foundation in a skill or vocation early in life, which provides stability and the opportunity to explore new things later on.

    • Embracing new experiences broadens horizonsNew experiences, whether in music or facing fears, can lead to personal growth and a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world.

      Exploring new experiences, even those that evoke fear, can broaden our horizons and change us in unexpected ways. Whether it's discovering new genres of music or confronting our fears in a controlled environment, stepping out of our comfort zones can lead to growth and personal development. For instance, the speaker shared how listening to Russian choir music opened up a new world of music for him, despite growing up as a punk rocker. Similarly, in a virtual reality lab, people may face fears like sharks or spiders, which can elicit strong reactions. However, some individuals, like David Goggins, have learned to suppress their fear responses, embodying the drive to overcome challenges and push beyond their limits. Ultimately, embracing new experiences, even those that scare us, can lead to personal growth and a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

    • Navying SEALs endure extreme training to discover hidden strengthNavy SEALs push beyond limits, persevere through challenges, and prioritize mission over recognition.

      Navy SEALs are selected and trained to endure extreme conditions and challenges, pushing beyond their perceived limits to discover hidden reserves of strength. This is exemplified in their grueling training program, BUDs, where candidates are subjected to cold, wet, and sandy conditions, and must learn to run on empty. Those who succeed, often have a competitive mindset and a background in athletics or overcoming adversity. The small challenges, like blisters or chafing, can be just as debilitating as the large ones, and it's the ability to persevere through these micro-struggles that sets SEALs apart. They do it for the love of the work and the importance of the mission, rather than seeking recognition or awards.

    • Hormones and Substances Shape Behavior in Complex WaysTestosterone can make people more competitive or altruistic, while nicotine can act as a cognitive enhancer, especially for older adults. However, responsible use is crucial.

      Testosterone, a hormone often associated with aggression and jerkish behavior, can actually make people more of who they already are, whether that's more altruistic or more competitive. This was highlighted in a study where men given testosterone became more competitive during a philanthropic auction. Similarly, nicotine, which can have negative health effects, can also act as a cognitive enhancer, particularly in older adults. These findings offer a more nuanced perspective on the role of hormones and substances in shaping behavior. It's important to note that these substances should be used responsibly, with proper medical supervision when necessary. Additionally, developing behavioral tools for focus and engagement can also be beneficial for cognitive function.

    • Exploring the Personal Impact of Psychedelic SubstancesThrough personal experiences, speakers found relief from depression using psilocybin and MDMA. Open discussions about these substances can foster connection and understanding.

      The speakers in this conversation have had personal experiences with psychedelic substances, particularly psilocybin and MDMA, and have found positive effects from them, especially in terms of relieving depression. The speaker expresses gratitude for the podcast and the unique perspectives it provides, and they share a connection based on their shared experiences and appreciation for each other's talents. Additionally, they discover a familial connection and find humor in their similarities. Overall, the conversation highlights the personal and emotional impact of these substances and the importance of having open and honest discussions about them.

His hunting eventually attracted the eye of the one and only Joe Rogan, who picked Cam's brain about everything there is to know about bowhunting. Cameron tells the bears some hunting stories and even gets them interested in joining in as well. They also talk about proxy parenting, diet coke, relieving yourself during marathons, the competition of life, active lifestyles, some wisdom from Bert's dad. https://tomsegura.com/tour https://www.bertbertbert.com/tour https://store.ymhstudios.com 2 Bears, 1 Cave Ep. 237 Learn more about your ad choices.
