Commune with Jeff Krasno

Commune with Jeff Krasno

Commune is a podcast where we explore the ideas and practices that bring us together and help us live healthy, purpose-filled lives. We believe personal and societal health are two sides of the same coin, and that cultivating personal wellness is the first step toward making the world well. We connect with experts, scientists, and storytellers around food, health, social impact, mindfulness and movement practices, personal growth, and environmental action. In addition to being a podcast, Commune is also an online course platform where thousands of participants take each course together, day-by-day, for free. We then provide social tools that empower participants to form local action groups and implement their new knowledge in their communities.... Show More

When Dr. Jonathan Berman started the March for Science, he was surprised to see anti-vaccine advocates joining him. How could people who were advocating for science also believe in something that scientific study didn’t support? His investigations ultimately led him to write “Anti-vaxxers: How to Challenge a Misinformed Movement” — a compassionate and nuanced approach to discussing the safety and efficacy of vaccines.
