In this clip from a longer conversation, Evie and Paul discuss some of the people and ideas that have influenced Paul’s work. He mentions the work of
- Pain scientist Prof. Lorimer Moseley,
- Physiotherapist Jason Silvernail DPT
- Dr. Steven Novella, Harriet Hall and the team at sciencebasedmedicine.org
- Dr. Janet Travell, author of the seminal textbooks on myofascial pain and trigger points
We discuss the concept of “Tooth Fairy Science”, a term coined by Dr. Harriet Hall, and her suggestion to “consider who disagrees with you AND WHY” as a helpful maxim to live by.
On the topic of listening to and understanding those who disagree with you, we discuss a recent episode of Simon Sinek’s podcast entitled “Extreme Listening“, which features Deeyah Khan’s story of listening to and ultimately changing the views of a white supremacist leader.
