What’s Coming This Episode?
How do we differentiate between an addiction and a habit? Is one worse than the other? Sean has live quite a life and has been addicted to all sorts. Now he says he’s ‘addicted to life’. Ed is addicted to oxygen and water. Oh, and information too. He’s one of those people that reaches for his phone within seconds of waking.
How about you? Do you like your habits? Let us know in the comments below.
Sean and Ed are back from their holidays and working hard. Sean talks about the latest in brain research which is pretty darn fascinating. Ed is focused on the new Premier League season. Go soccer fans!
