Today's episode from 11th October 2021. We kick-off Monday by asking who is Frances Haugen? The former Facebook employee has leaked thousands of documents to the press and spoken to US Senators about the murky goings on at the social media company. We find out what motivated her to do it. Later on, discover this quick sleep method which has its origins in ancient yoga and some scientific grounding too. Frances Haugen, was initially hired to help protect against election interference on Facebook, when she left the company after two years, she has grown sceptical that her team had made an impact and believed that the company had put growth ahead of the platform's negative effects. She felt that lawmakers and regulators should know what she had discovered. From the Wall Street Journal, Jeff Horwitz analyses the series of interviews with the former product manager turned whistleblower to understand her motivations to expose one of the biggest businesses in the world. Many of us strive for more sleep, but our bodies and minds often keep us awake long after our desired times of rest. However, ancient wisdom and modern science agree that there is a way to get to sleep efficiently, and all you need is a set of lungs and a few seconds. From Inc.com Jessica Stillman reveals how the 4-7-8 method can help us all to get to sleep in an instant. 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.
