Host Robin Masiewicz and regulars Jamie and Gloria discuss "The Fun Theory", the theory that the easiest way to change human behavior for the better, is by making it fun to do. This was based on an ad campaign from Volkswagen where they decided to put the theory to the test in three behavioral experiments, the video of which is now posted on YouTube.
The first experiment was to see if more people would take the stairs rather than the escalator if they made it fun to do. The idea was to turn the stairs into a giant piano keyboard, where each stair represented a note. The lower notes were at the bottom of the stairs, and the higher ones on top. People discovered that they could make sounds as they went up or down the stairs.
The result? 66% more people than normal took the stairs over the escalator. Fun can obviously change behavior for the better.
The second experment was to see if they could get more people to throw their rubbish in the bin by making it fun to do. They wired a trash can so that each time you put something in, you heard a sound like a cartoon bomb falling down the world's deepest bin, then a boom when it "hit" the bottom.
The result of this experiment was that they collected 158 pounds of trash (72kg) in the "fun" bin compared to just 68 pounds (31kg) of trash in another bin just a short distance away.
The videos of these experiments went viral, resulting in other people trying to make other common tasks fun. So what do you think? Does novelty and fun help us to do the right thing

Charlotte View presents a different, interesting and insightful look at Death and what author Roberta Grimes, says really happens next.
Roberta Grimes is a business attorney, novelist and speaker based in Austin, Texas, who had two extraordinary experiences of light as a child. In an attempt to understand her experiences, she has spent decades studying nearly 200 years of abundant and consistent communications from the dead and other afterlife-related evidence that eventually enabled her to assemble an in-depth understanding of who we are and the meaning and purpose of our lives.
Roberta has learned so much about the death process and the period immediately following death that in 2010 she published a brief summary of the best information called The Fun of Dying – Find Out What Really Happens Next. Her second book about the afterlife, The Fun of Staying in Touch, will document the many ways in which the dead contact us, and the wonderful recent research that is making it easier for us to contact them.
During this interview Roberta will cover such points as:
What are the kinds of evidence about the afterlife that are available to us?
Where is the afterlife and how does it work?
How is it quantum physics related to the physics of the afterlife?
Why is it that we have little or no awareness of the afterlife?
How does death happen, and how does it “feel”?
What are heaven and hell, and how can we learn the truth about them?
What can we know about the meaning and purpose of our lives?
Roberta is a graduate of Smith College and Boston University School of Law. She blogs and answers questions at robertagrimes.com
Join professional musican Earl and professional painter Hannah Tiffin in a discussion for small business and business of passion owners (BOP'S) which looks at what day to day business is verses what we thought it would be. It can be really easy to be excited about our BOP's when we get started, but much like any relationship it can go stale if we do not keep a positive attitude. So, how do we keep a positive attitude when everything around us seems to be a struggle or is moving too fast to keep up with?
