We welcomed Taylor Robert—whom you may also know as Taylor Baggott—to the studio this morning to talk about his new album and release party at Hell’s Kitchen on Saturday, May 11th. Taylor has been on the music scene in the Twin Cities for more than 5 years, releasing his first full-length in 2009. In that time, he’s stuck to a sound he now calls “roll n’ soul,” although he went through a few incarnations at the suggestion of experienced friends to get to this point. We’ll keep in touch with Taylor Robert on PWB. We also heard new music from AM & Shawn Lee, Joshua Redman and local band Chicane Theory. Check the playlist for more!
Subliminal -How Your Unconscious Mind Rules Your Behavior
Leonard Mlodinow, the best-selling author gives us a startling and eye-opening examination of how the unconscious mind shapes our experience of the world and how, for instance, we often misperceive our relationships with family, friends, and business associates, misunderstand the reasons for our investment decisions, and misremember important events.
Your preference in politicians, the amount you tip your waiter—all judgments and perceptions reflect the workings of our mind on two levels: the conscious, of which we are aware, and the unconscious, which is hidden from us. The latter has long been the subject of speculation, but over the past two decades researchers have developed remarkable new tools for probing the hidden, or subliminal, workings of the mind. The result of this explosion of research is a new science of the unconscious and a sea change in our understanding of how the subliminal mind affects the way we live.
