Starlee Kine presents: Dr. Phil

Phil Collins

2/12/2014 - This is a story she did for This American Life and it won the Gold Prize at the Third Coast Audio Festival, which was incredibly exciting.  She learned how to write a break-up song to get over her break-up.  The story is about heartbreak and wallowing and sadness and how songs make you stay sad, but in a good way.  I hope you like it.

They began over 2,700 years ago in Olympia, Greece. They were held in honor of Zeus, king of the gods. Today, the gods are fame, fortune, and national pride. The Olympics are a multi-billion dollar extravaganza. Behind the spectacle of athletic prowess and the patina of global harmony, brass-knuckle politics and brute economics reign.

Kids struggle to resist marshmallows, and their ability to holdout at age 4 turns out to predict how successful they're likely to be the rest of their lives. And an unexpected find in a convent archive uncovers early warning signs for dementia in the writings of 18-year-olds.
