    When you go grocery shopping you are bombarded by health claims. Food labels claim things are all-natural, organic, multi-grain and 100% this or that. But what do these claims really mean to you? You may be surprised to discover how much of it is hype and doesn’t really mean much. Plus, do you eavesdrop? Yes, you do. Eavesdropping – that is obtaining information about people that you aren’t supposed to have – is human nature according to linguist John L. Locke, author the book Eavesdropping: An Intimate History (http://amzn.to/2uVfH3Y). Listen as John takes you on a journey through the history of eavesdropping, how every living creature (and even plants) eavesdrops and why it is necessary for survival. Also, you know you are not supposed to talk on your phone and drive at the same time because it increases your chances of getting into a crash. But why? Is it really that hard to do those 2 things at the same time? And does using a hands-free device make it any safer? And creativity is something that separates humans from other creatures. But why is it some people are more creative than others? Is creativity something you can develop or is it a gift given to a select few. Speaker and comedian Bob Stromberg, creator of the online course called “Mastering the Craft of Creativity” (http://www.bobstromberg.com/something) reveals how all of us can use our creativity better.
