This week, another engaging conversation with author, podcaster, and expert health and wellness coach, Howard Jacobson.  Here, we get into the tricky question of how to discern truth from falsehood, reality from creative (and compelling) stories. Using concrete examples in the fields of nutrition, exercise, and martial arts practice.  Touching upon:

* How we decide what is true (or true enough)

* The necessity and paradox of trust

* Resolving conflicting ideas

* What science, medicine, and Systema training have in common
