In one of our most fascinating interviews ever, Dr. Wallace Nichols explained to us the surprising science behind water and the human condition. Studies had been done on the effect music and stress had on the mind, but when Wallace went to search for research done on the effect water had on the mind, his results came up empty. So he decided to conduct his own research, and the results may surprise you! Take a listen and find out how water affects us all!Dr. Wallace “J.” Nichols, called “Keeper of the Sea” by GQ Magazine and “a visionary” by Outside Magazine is an innovative, silo-busting, entrepreneurial scientist, movement maker, renown marine biologist, voracious Earth and idea explorer, wild water advocate, bestselling author, sought after lecturer, and fun-loving Dad. He also likes turtles (a lot).  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
