Ever hear the saying “when it rains, it pours”? Well, it was raining awesome YouTube videos for me last week!
Below are three videos I highly recommend you watch. The first is an interview between Ellen (yes, THAT Ellen) and Jodi Picoult, author of the music therapist’s favorite new book, Sing You Home. They don’t chat about music therapy…but it’s fascinating to hear Picoult’s personal connection with some of the story lines in the novel.
The second video is a TED talk outlining, from a neuroscience perspective, 3 ways we can super-charge how the brain learns and retains new information. This video has convinced me that, yes, I really DO need to start using Prezi…
Finally, the third video is a fabulously-entertaining, auto-tuned song called “Ode to the Brain.” ‘Nuff said.

P.S. Special thanks to @minutrition on Twitter, who forwarded the two TED videos to me. Thank you!
