24 mins | Aug 3, 2021

Today's episode from 4th August 2021. This morning: This day last year the earth was rocked by one of the biggest non-nuclear explosions in history. We hear from a writer who survived the Beirut explosion. And later, we all want to build better habits to help us improve our lives- but what are habits? Mundane mechanisms or subliminal skills? On the 4th of August 2020, a fire at a warehouse on the Beirut waterfront ignited a giant blast that killed around two hundred people and injured thousands more. Charif Majdalani, a Lebanese novelist recalls the shock and chaos of the day. In redefining the ways that we think about habits, we can utilize them to achieve our goals. For Psyche magazine, Ian Robertson and Katsunori Miyahara discuss the ways we think about habits, and how this can help us turn them into useful tools. 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.
