Dr. Z

I am a doctor, but not a medical doctor

I earned an academic doctorate, or PhD, hence Dr. + my first name = Dr. Z

My first name is Zach or Zachary comes from the Bible which means “to remember” and it is the name of a prophet in the Bible, Zechariah, and according to Wikipedia Zechariah was a person in the Hebrew Bible and traditionally considered the author of the Book of Zechariah, the eleventh of the Twelve Minor Prophets. In other words, he was second to last.

But Zachary also has an origin in Greek. Záchari means sugar. Think saccharine then say Zach.

Hear the relation?

Anyway …

What’s a PhD?

It means Doctor of Philosophy which sounds pretty cool.

Who doesn’t like to think about fundamental problems such as existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language?

Just open Instagram and you’ll find people posting photos with taglines about their life or why their life is a certain way, why other people behave the way they do, love, broken hearts …

Apologies for the social media digression … back to PhD …

Why don’t we use D.P. or D.o.P. as in dope, like idiot, or dope like rad?

One could argue that every PhD is a little idiotic and a little rad.

If it means Doctor of Philosophy, why can’t doctors get the correct acronym? They are called doctors after all and they can’t even get their title correct?

Well as many things in life, the PhD acronym comes from Latin.

Those Romans are still influencing us. I mean they gave us laws, language, aqueducts, and ideas for movies …

In Latin, it’s Philosophiae Doctor so they took the first two letters of Philosophiae and added the first letter of Doctor to get PhD.

But let’s set aside the doctor of philosophy talk for a second because, I’ve conceived the Dr. Z Podcasts to cover a range of issues which I summarize as the 6As.

About-ish 1: About Dr. Z, Zachary Brooks

Who is Dr. Z, Zachary Brooks? In episode 3 of About-ish, I share what I have learned about running a podcast.

About-ish …1

Hello Hello This is Dr. Z of Dr. Z’s podcasts and I thought since I’m doing a podcast, I might as well make an “about” section with a Podcast.

I call it “About-ish” in which I will share a few things about me to the 747 visitors to dr-z.net from 34 countries … as of December 2018.

Let’s start with the name …

A picture of a man in a white dress shirt. The picture is cut off. You can see the arm of a man around Dr. Z's shoulder but you can't see the man.

This is a picture of Dr. Z.

Dr. Z

I am a doctor, but not a medical doctor

I earned an academic doctorate, or PhD, hence Dr. + my first name = Dr. Z

My first name is Zach or Zachary comes from the Bible which means “to remember” and it is the name of a prophet in the Bible, Zechariah, and according to Wikipedia Zechariah was a person in the Hebrew Bible and traditionally considered the author of the Book of Zechariah, the eleventh of the Twelve Minor Prophets. In other words, he was second to last.

But Zachary also has an origin in Greek. Záchari means sugar. Think saccharine then say Zach.

But let’s set aside the doctor of philosophy talk for a second because, I’ve conceived the Dr. Z Podcasts to cover a range of issues which I summarize as the 6As.

6As

What about Athletics?

We will talk about that. It’s one of my favorite topics especially in the Organ Oracles series that covers inspirational stories of people who have had organ transplants and their athletic achievements since their transplant.

What about Adventure?

We will talk about that, too in the Win or Learn program.  Not accomplishing goals is a big part of life which creates opportunities for learning. In Win or Learn, we interview the people given an opportunity to learn after not achieving a goal.

What about Academics?

Obviously, I love learning and just as importantly I love to share what I learn. In People Behind the PhDs, I interview people with PhDs about how they got into their field because their answers may surprise you.

What about Art?

As a former B-Level Hollywood actor (that’s above C, but well below A), I love all things art and the effort to try to create something in our world to make meaning out of the chaos that constantly wants to envelop us. In Social Slice, Dr. Z, that’s me, along with a special guest, Kate C., tease out the subtle truths hidden beneath the surface of social life on planet earth.

What about Advocacy?

In Anecdotes of Advocacy, I interview some of the most curious people on the planet. The people who help others and the beautiful inspiration and joy people get by looking around and asking, “How can I help?”

Finally …

I explore the Human Algorithm …

If you wonder about life and your part on it and your purpose on our rotating ball of grass, water, rock, and dirt, then these programs are for you …

If you wonder about your ability to change the world positively, don’t wonder. You can make a difference. It is a two-step process.

Take the first step. And keep walking.

Think of anyone you admire. That person is human. They looked at themselves and found a way to help the world through sport, journey, learning, creativity, and encouragement.

Their movement, their algorithm, their human algorithm changed the world for the better.

You can, too J

Thanks for checking out the first episode of About-Ish.

Check out dr-z.net as I upload episodes frequently.

In the meantime, Happy deciding.

Podcast 05: Bilingual Decision Making: Conjunction Fallacy and Regret

The Conjunction Fallacy occurs when it is assumed that specific conditions are more probable than a single general one, and regret occurs when a person feels sad, repentant, or disappointed about something that happened in the past. What about second language speakers?
