Seg. 1: Cell Phone Addiction. Seg. 2: Circadian Rhythms.

Nov 1, 2018

Segment 1: Are you using your phone to read this? Us too.

A cell phone today is like another limb; we do not want to leave the house without it. Is this an addiction? We talk with parents and smartphone users about why phones are so addictive and how they are affecting our moods, motivations, and parenting.

Segment 2, beginning at 31:40: On Sunday, we will gain one hour of sleep.

Our cell phone clocks will automatically change to standard time, but our body won't. Even just one hour affects our circadian rhythm. On this episode, we learn why and how.
