Episode 126 - When Your Life Flashes Before Your Eyes With Dr. Ajmal Zemmar

4/26/2022
History is full of stories that tell tales of people reliving memories from their lives moments before dying. Hollywood has portrayed this scene in many movies throughout the years. But only recently was this moment observed by science, as an 87-year-old patient, who was receiving an EEG for seizures, died during the test. What followed was an accidental discovery that may shed light on what really happens after we die. On today's show, host Mitch Albom is joined by Dr. Ajmal Zemmar from the...

Episode 125 - The Age of Influence, The Influence of Age

4/19/2022
We are a culture that celebrates youth. But is being young really all it's cracked up to be? As Morrie Schwartz said during one of his Tuesday interviews with host Mitch Albom, "I know what a misery youth is, so don't tell me it's so great...cause I know better." For centuries, humans have chased after the Fountain of Youth. How to look younger, act younger, feel younger. But when we shine a spotlight on the young, we ignore the important wisdom of those who have lived long enough to acquire...

3/15/2022
On today's episode of the Tuesday People podcast we discuss the topic of caregiving. When is a caregiver not a caregiver?

Episode 122 - Love Each Other or Die

3/8/2022
Looking through the lens of war, we can often see our own problems in a different light. If we can learn one thing from this horrible situation in Ukraine, perhaps it is some perspective on our complaints, our injuries, and our perceived wrongs that we believe to have suffered. Let's take a step back from our micro-aggressions and realize that real aggression is taking place right now in the world, with millions of people being displaced, injured, and killed in its wake. Above all, let's...

Worrying about things we can't control isn't a productive way to spend our days. Yet most of us worry about things that are happening in the future, or things that may never happen at all .

Episode 119 - Fame: Be Careful What You Wish For

2/8/2022
On today's episode of the Tuesday People podcast, host Mitch Albom discusses fame, and what it means for those who live their lives in the public eye. With fame comes scrutiny.

We hear from Morrie as he talks about what it was like to receive his first taste of the spotlight after his initial interview on Ted Koppel's "Nightline." Little did he know then,...

Episode 118 - The 5 Apology Languages With Dr. Jen Thomas

2/1/2022

Episode 116 - The Letter That Started It All

1/18/2022
In August of 1995, Mitch Albom approached his literary agent about an idea he had for a book. Mitch's agent asked him to put his thoughts down in the form of a letter to the agent, and he would, in turn, share the letter with publishers who might be interested in the story. While going through notes recently, Mitch ran across that letter. A letter he hadn't seen for nearly 30 years. And until today, that letter has never been read or shared with anyone other than the publishers upon whose...

Episode 115 - Saying No To Enemies In Your Life

1/11/2022
Society and the media love to stir the pot and make us believe we're living in an "us against them" world. There is "our side" and "our enemies' side," and no middle ground in between. While common enemies can sometimes bring a country together, more often than not, they are thrown in our paths to divide us. On today's Tuesday People podcast, host Mitch Albom discusses how love, understanding of others, and finding common ground can go a long way toward bringing us together, rather than...

In particular, the need for all of us to be more inclusive when it comes to welcoming "others" into our lives. Instead of excluding those outside of our immediate circle - those who may not mirror our beliefs or lifestyle - embrace them. The more we objectify outsiders as "others," the less we're going to care about them. How about welcoming a stranger into your life today? Learn more about your ad...

Episode 109 - The Age of Reaction

11/30/2021
We are living in the era of instant reaction. Reaction to anything that you do, anything that you say, anything that you post, anything that you put out there in the world. How much should you care about the outside noise? How much should you worry about what others think of you? Particularly strangers in the cyber universe? Morrie never had to face this, but in his own way, he had an interesting interaction with the public after his appearance on Nightline when he received thousands of...
