28 mins | Sep 21, 2021

Today's episode from 22nd September 2021. First today: Did you know that even before the pandemic the wellness world had been entangled with vaccine hesitancy for years? Now because of Covid-19 the consequences are starker than ever. We take a look at how yoga instructors, fitness coaches and others are spreading misinformation online. After that, we've got some tips on how to make better life choices by beating your own biases. In this exploration of the dark side of social media influencers covering health issues from the Washington Post, Ashley Fetters and Gerrit De Vynck reflect on how misinformation in this industry is becoming an increasingly complex issue to tackle. This instalment of Nir and Far reflects on "our bias to judge other people differently from how we judge ourselves." Here, Nir Eyal explores why we tend to give ourselves the benefit of the doubt while not doing the same for others and reveals ways to make sure this bias doesn’t get the best of us. 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.
