Today's episode from 24th September 2021. First this Friday: The biggest names in tech are investing billions into medical services but is Amazon, with its home devices, 24-hour delivery services and warehouses best positioned to take the biggest share of healthcare? We find out. We end the week by discussing overthinking. We've got some tips on how to manage it and make it work for you. Amazon is in the process of launching various consumer-facing healthcare services, but it’s also facing competition from other areas of Big Tech. For the Financial Times, Dave Lee argues that if Amazon can tactically handle the competition and successfully navigate through a political landscape "increasingly fearful of its power," healthcare is set to be one of the company’s most significant opportunities. Examining every aspect of a question can be mentally exhausting, but some of the most profound insights can also be gained that way. The Guardian's agony aunt Annalisa Barbieri reflects on the upsides of overthinking, with help from a psychologist. Here she reveals tips that will help you thrive, even if you're someone who thinks too much. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
