How We Eat
Chow. Nibbles. Grub. Food â€” we relate to it in a lot of different ways. It can serve as nourishment, as pleasure, as fuel for our bodies, or the glue that holds communities together. But food can also make us sick â€” or cause us to feel powerless over our cravings and habits. So what determines our relationship with food? In this episode, we explore that question, with stories about the rise of â€” and backlash against â€” food allergies, the connection between climate change and eating meat, and how our circadian rhythms can drive appetite. Also heard on this weekâ€™s episode: A recent study found that only half of people who say they have food allergies, actually do. So what’s going on here? Is it all in our heads? We dive into the latest research to find out. Youâ€™ve heard of the Mediterranean diet, the Atkins diet, the Flexitarian diet â€” now consider the CRON lifestyle (donâ€™t call it a diet), in which practitioners use serious calorie restriction to fight the aging process. University of Pennsylvania researcher Kelly Allison explains how our circadian rhythms drive the way we eat â€” and how timing can determine whether we gain or lose weight. When a bully teased Sandhya Menonâ€™s 10-year-old daughter about the Indian food in her lunchbox, Sandhya issued a plea on Twitter: that parents talk with their kids, and correct the idea that foods from other cultures are â€œweirdâ€ or â€œgross.â€ Your stories: Listeners sent in their favorite food memories.

The Inner Workings of Hospitals
Hospitals can be bewildering places. They operate according to their own special logic, which can make them feel a bit like a well-oiled machine â€” and a bit like organized chaos. As patients, weâ€™re dropped in and pushed through a maze of activity, mostly clueless about the hidden gears that keep this life-saving machinery chugging along. On this episode of The Pulse, we step through the â€œstaff onlyâ€ doors to get a better sense of the inner workings of hospitals. Also heard on this week’s episode: Talking with microbiologist Jonathan Eisen and healthcare epidemiologist Jennifer Han about healthcare-acquired infections â€” and the ways proper cleaning mitigates the risk they pose. Violence erupts at hospitals more frequently than it should. Now, a California law is requiring medical centers to develop prevention plans to protect workers. Ballinger architect Erin Nunes Cooper explains the challenges in designing hospitals â€” and why medical facilities can feel like a maze. Writer-comedian Mimi Hayes found short-term love at the hospital, while recovering from a brain hemorrhage â€” call it a meet-cute for the ages (or, ahem â€” â€œthe agedâ€). Every hospital has an employee whose positive attitude makes everybodyâ€™s day better. At Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware, that guy is George Benson.

Why do we need the wild?
Being in nature is restorative; the wild can feed your soul. But, for hundreds of years, we pushed west across the country, trampling and displacing wildlife along the way. Later, lots of people woke up to the effects of urban sprawl and industrialization. And, in 1964, the Wilderness Act was created to set aside places â€œwhere man himself is a visitor.â€ There are now many efforts to protect untouched land, and at the same time we want to enjoy the wild, be out there in it. Balancing those impulses requires a careful dance. Does the wild still exist â€” and what qualifies as â€œwildernessâ€ anyway? For answers, listen in as we chase tigers, track majestic elk, and help bears cross the road â€” safely. Also heard on The Pulse this week: Drew Lanham grew up on his familyâ€™s farm in South Carolina. He explains how wilderness has always meant happiness and freedom to him â€” but also makes him remember the painful history that same land holds. We take a trip throughÂ Brigantine WildernessÂ in New Jersey with refuge manager Virginia Rettig Deep sea ecologistÂ Andrew ThalerÂ describes wilderness at the bottom of the ocean Sound artistÂ Dianne BallonÂ shares some of her recordings from Shenandoah National Park
