Unlike our usual topic-driven epicodes, our hosts will discuss the current issues of life and the state of the world (such as it is). Join Jon and Stephen at 5:00pm GMT (12:00pm Eastern in USA/Canada) to call in and share your take on things.
It’s easy to lay blame in order to avoid doing something we know we need––and and in some cases want––to do in everyday life. Yet, when is what we’re blaming a legitimate reason and when is it just an excuse? How can we recognize the difference? And if it’s an excuse, how do we motivate ourselves to overcoming the excuse and take action? Join Jon and Stephen on BlogTalkRadio.com/suddenlyhuman at 6:00PM GMT(1:00PM EDT in US/Canada) on Friday, 16 October 2015, as they discuss excuses and...

Who decides what is true or not? The legal system? Political leaders? Society? Most say it's God. Stephen and Jon say it's not God but humans. Join Stephen and Jon as they lay bare this controversial topic in an honest and no-holds-barred discussion.
Join Stephen and Jon as they discuss ways to handle times of unexpected crisis. Disaster - Illness or injury - Death of a loved one - End of a relationship - Loss of a job or career - Betrayal - and similar events which test us to our core.
We live in a world that tells us to avoid negative or difficult emotions, so we resort to entertainment and sense-filled stimulants (drinks, drugs, food, or even medicine) to avoid feeling bad. Suddenly Human discusses the nature of difficult emotions and wonders if it serves a better purpose, and how to make it useful.
