Running the company PixelPappa which wants their coworkers to work from home. By the way please excuse the barking dogs - Í´m working from home.

He helps teenagers from weapons and gangs back to society.
He makes blind kids use Spotify.
He thinks healthcare has something to learn.

War and pain. Two really hard subjects which I tried to combine in my last pod .
Well, if you thought that was just a bit too difficult to digest - here is the shorter recap! And of course with some perks to it. My own very strange stories to bind it together. Some things you could do to help yourself. And it´s not really that hard.
And a short, short marketing thing about the next episode.
So you really would miss out if you didn’t listen to this one. Take your 15 minutes now and do it ;-)

Meet Volodymyr Romanenko - Scientific Director at the Ukrainian Medical Academy.
He is a physician - a neurologist and pain specialist. So we will talk a bit about neurology and pain. On Ukraine’s journey from being “non-scientific” to having journals, publishing papers and implementing pain knowledge in medical education.
But Volodymyr is also Ukrainian. And Ukraine is at war. Hear what he says about this. How is life, for real?
And at the end he will tell us how he would like us to support the cause in Ukraine. Probably not the way you think.
This is a very interesting episode of Outsmart the pain - don’t miss out!

A short reminder what last week was about. With highlights. And some of my thoughts.
If you don´t have time for the long one - try this one, it´s only 10 minutes. And if you like it, why don´t give the others a try?
Next week - another regular show. On a serious matter. Pain. Ukraine.

He wanted to become a truck driver but is now an area manager at a hospital, getting high appraisals from coworkers for his exceptional work during the pandemic. And the journey definitely has not ended there.
His motto being ‘love and respect’ - are these just empty words? How does this work for his employees? How does he work with difficult issues?
He also said Ullared. And then I said omg. Want to know why?
Join me in this episode of Outsmart the pain!

An insight episode - the shorter version with some extras!
If you haven’t listened to the last episode about energy you can listen to this short recap to get a glimpse! And I even make a connection to persistent pain. And it’s not ‘lack of energy’ or anything else that obvious.
Making you curious? Just 15 minutes of insight. You can do it.

Season 3 of Outsmart the Pain is finally out there!
Energy is on everyone´s mind right now. In Sweden, there is a lot of politics involved in dealing with high prices and what to do about it.
But from a non-political view - what is it all about? How are the prices set? What on earth do the Amish have to do with horse power? And how can all energy on earth be nuclear?
Many questions answered in this episode. Everyone interested in energy really needs to listen to this one! Without politics involved :-)

This is a short conclusion + my own thoughts around the last two episodes with psychologist and associate professor Rikard Wicksell.
What can be done if "everything has been tried" ? And what can be done in society in the future to get things going, and going better?
This is the last episode for Season 2 - thank you for listening! It has been a great pleasure having you, and I am looking forward to next season starting in August. Today you will get a little teaser on what is there waiting for you.
Have a splendid summer and please tell your friends to listen to this pod!

Part 2 since my talk with Rikard Wicksell was so long. Listen to the previous episode first!
Why are some people not getting better in their pain although healthcare is throwing them all different kind of medication?
And society itself, does it do enough in the fight against pain? Well, that was of course a rhethorical question, but what to do about it?
This and a lot more in today´s episode.
Be my guest!

Meet clinical psychologist and associate professor at Karolinska Institutet, Rikard Wicksell!
When medication is not the whole solution, or any solution at all, what can you do about your pain (or actually any other condition as well) ?
What is the true problem when not reaching the treatment goal?
We talk about what the psychologist can do. Is there a "golden" therapy like cognitive behavioural therapy, or ACT, or anything else? And how did it all start, actually?
Why does Rikard not like when we tell the patient to lose weight?
What was that thing about Mozart.....?
You will definitely enter a new world of thinking if you join me in this episode. Since we had so much to talk about, my interview will actually be divided in two parts. This is the first one, next one next week!
