Episode 68: Dopamine Nation with Dr. Anna Lembke, MD

On today’s show, we have psychiatrist Dr. Anna Lembke, the author of Dopamine Nation, here to talk about dopamine, which rules the pain and pleasure centers of the mind.  She describes that we live in a time of indulgence with unparalleled access to high-reward and high-dopamine stimuli. In an era of overconsumption and instant gratification, Dopamine Nation explains the personal and societal price of being ruled by the next fix- and how to manage it. Her amazing book helps guide people to find a healthy balance between pleasure and pain. It can not only transform your thinking, but your life. Join us in this fascinating conversation!

Dr. Lembke is the Medical Director of Stanford Addiction Medicine.  A clinician scholar, she has published more than a hundred peer-reviewed papers, book chapters, and commentaries in prestigious medical journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine and JAMA.  She is also the author of Drug Dealer, MD, and Dopamine Nation, a book that shows that the secret to finding balance is combining the science of desire with the wisdom of recovery.
