Lost in my mind: What happens when we daydream

Connecticut Public Radio Show Talks About Maladaptive Daydreaming

The Colin McEnroe Show can be described with four words beginning with “E:” eclectic, esoteric, eccentric and echolocation. The fourth one refers to how bats use sound to track their prey, and it really doesn’t have much to do with how we think about the show. It was probably a mistake.
The best way to understand us is through the subjects we tackle: Neanderthals, tambourines, handshakes, the Iliad, snacks, ringtones, punk rock, Occam’s razor, Rasputin, houseflies, zippers.
