The Biology of Stress (and anti-stress)

The Biology of Stress (and anti-stress)

Playing tracks by

The Dodos.

This is a show about the feeling you get when your boss is bearing down on you and the fire under your ass has reached pubic hair. I am of course referring to stress! But WTF is it? Chemicals! Yes, all of that anxiety, nervousness, jitters, twitching, headache(ing), and insomnia is just a bunch of neurohormones poking protein receptors (aka a bunch of chemicals in your brain and blood pressing little buttons all over your body). Also, "anti-stress," tend and befriend, how sponges have a stress response, fight-or-flight-or-freeze, chronic stress and why it sucks 23 kinds of ass, rats on ecstasy, and an entirely unrelated tangent on 2 celled animals that can live in your blood stream.

Oh, and an abundance of terrible, terrible puns.
