Ron Burgundy Picks The Brain Of A Brain Scientist

Ron Burgundy has asked a lot of important people a lot of important questions, but today he digs into something that affects every single one of us — our brains. He’s been pondering a lot of things, like why is Terms of Endearment so sad? Why do we forget our dreams? Why is watching Carolina fall down so funny?

No one before has ever thought about the inner workings of our own minds — unless you go to therapy or read self-help books or really do any kind of inward reflection, as Carolina points out — and after a brief squabble between Ron and Carolina, er— I mean, a brief meeting, and a very, very brief cathartic yelling session, it’s time to bring out Ron’s guest: A real life brain scientist.

Dr. Marc Milstein, aka Dr. Milly-Vanilly (it’s cool, he said Ron can call him that) is a real brain scientist. Not a physician, so he probably couldn’t save Ron if he had a heart attack, but don’t worry, he made Carolina take CPR classes for just such an occasion.

Dr. Milstein answers all of Ron’s questions about sleep, like why is it so important that he get a full 14 hours? Is that actually too much sleep? Should Ron see a doctor? And what do the latest, cutting-edge studies tell us about what our brains do while we’re sleeping? As well as some very important need-to-knows, like what are the chances of getting incepted? You know, like in the movie? And how real of a threat is Freddy Krueger?

But there’s a whole lot more to cover when it comes to our brains beyond just sleep, like whether or not you can train your tastebuds, what the best thing you can do for your brain is, how our brains are evolving, how scientists like Dr. Milstein learn all of this, and if it’s true that scientists tried to clone Andre the Giant.

We’ve all got brains in our heads but there’s a whole lot that we don’t know about them, so if you want to learn more about just what’s going on up there and how to keep your brain young, tune into this episode of The Ron Burgundy Podcast.
