This week, Victoria sits down with the brilliant Dr. Anna Lemke, an addiction psychiatrist at Stanford University, to unravel the complex relationship between addiction and technology. They dive into the science of addiction, the role social connection can play in our attachment to our devices, and why some people are more prone to addiction than others.

Drawing parallels to drug and alcohol addiction, Dr. Lembke enlightens us about how the brain's dopamine-driven desire for viral videos and technological thrills can lead us down the path of addiction. As the conversation unfolds, they explore the art of setting boundaries with technology and even challenge YOU to join Victoria in a week-long mission of creating distance between yourself and your devices!

There's nothing boring about the science of addiction, so tune in (and maybe stop the scroll while you're at it) to enjoy this episode of Real Pod!
