Do you sometimes have your most creative ideas while folding laundry, washing dishes or doing nothing in particular? It's because when your body goes on autopilot, your brain gets busy forming new neural connections that connect ideas and solve problems. Learn to love being bored as Manoush explains the connection between spacing out and creativity.

THE PRIVACY PARADOX

Manoush's most recent interactive podcast project. The goal: to take back control over our personal information and digital identities. Through a five-day series of challenges, newsletters and mini-podcasts, tens of thousands of listeners confronted the "privacy paradox," the disconnect between our feelings about digital privacy (we value it!) and how we act online (we give privacy away!).
