    Thanks to all of you who pre-ordered it, the book has already done incredibly well.  If you haven't already, you can still help the book reach 1 million people by ordering a copy (https://amzn.eu/d/ipz9OUW).

    Today on Slo Mo, we bring the Unstressable series to a close with a captivating conversation featuring Corey Keyes, a distinguished sociologist and professor emeritus at Emory University. Corey is renowned for his pioneering research on human flourishing and mental health, introducing the concept of "languishing"—a state of being where one is neither mentally ill nor mentally well.

    Many of you may be familiar with Corey's influential work and his acclaimed book "Languishing," which has been lauded by thought leaders like Adam Grant, Arianna Huffington, Angela Duckworth, and Jonathan Haidt. But there's so much more to Corey than his academic achievements.

    Outside of his groundbreaking research, Corey is a passionate advocate for holistic well-being, emphasizing what he calls the "Five Vitamins" for a fulfilling life: love, learning, work, spirituality, and play. He believes that these elements are essential for overcoming languishing and achieving true mental wellness.

    Listen as we discuss: 

    Join us for an enriching conversation that explores the depths of human flourishing and the pathways to a more vibrant, fulfilling life. Corey's wisdom and expertise offer valuable guidance for anyone looking to navigate the complexities of mental health and personal growth.

    In today’s episode of Slo Mo, I sit down with the inimitable Bassem Youssef, a man whose wit and wisdom have challenged and changed the contours of political satire in the Middle East. In a departure from our usual tone, this conversation takes a more contemplative and, indeed, somewhat pessimistic turn as we delve into the complexities of modern life and the daunting challenges that lie ahead.

    As we continue our Unstressable series, Bassem's courage to speak about the world's most challenging topics should remind us never to be afraid to take, even the biggest problems, head on.

    07:36 Fame is not real

    21:10 Are we in an era of hyperinformation?
    23:45 Cancel culture

    37:56 Are we heading into more conflict?
    40:23 The end of the truth
    48:50 How will AI affect us?
    1:00:35 How does Bassem keep going?

    This episode is a compelling journey through the darker sides of our modern realities, offering no easy answers but many important questions. Bassem's voice is an important warning to those who might choose to ignore the world. His reflections invite us to think deeply about our own beliefs, biases, and the kind of future we are creating, so take the time to Slow Down with us and look for answers to some truly tough questions.

    For more thought-provoking exploration and a lot of laughter you can catch Bassem Youssef on his European "Middle Beast" tour in: Oslo, Berlin, Zurich, Munich, Hamburg, Antwerp, Stockholm, London, Copenhagen, Birmingham, Dublin, Manchester, and Paris: https://www.bassemyoussef.xyz/upcoming-shows/
