Saturday Share: Science for the Masses

Every Saturday I would like to share with you a video I find inspirational. There are so many amazing, enriching resources out there. Hopefully these videos will bring you joy and inspiration!

Fair warning. This Saturday Share is a bit different. It’s not a TED Talk. It’s in fact comedy. Steve and I love John Oliver because he makes us laugh but does it while taking on tough issues. A couple of weeks ago he talked about our love and fascination with scientific studies and how unbelievably misleading it can all be. As someone who has suffered from food allergies and migraines, I know how contradicting studies and whole books can be on “scientific topics”. As John Oliver points out the right way to handle all this contradicting data is NOT to just choose the study that sounds best or affirms our beliefs. It is NOT to throw our hands up and say “well no one knows how to cure cancer so why do anything at all”. The right answer is to understand the science and fund better studies on these hard issues. Or not if you are more of a Todd Talk person 😉 Hope you get a chuckle!

If you have a favorite inspirational YouTube video, I’d love to see it! Contact me at or comment below.
