"Simple Recipes and Nutrition Tips for Emotional Balance" (Encore Presentation)

Aired on Tuesday, January 16th.

(Note: This interview originally appeared in September of last year.) We offer a discussion about how what we eat affects not only our health and our mental state, but also our emotional disposition -- how food affects mood, as it were. Our guest is Dr. Leslie Korn, an expert in this regard. She's a clinician specializing in mental health nutrition and integrative medicine, and her newest book, just out, is "The Good Mood Kitchen." Dr. Korn has served as a Fulbright scholar on traditional medicine, has worked as a Clinical Fellow at Harvard Medical School, and has been a National Institutes of Health-funded research scientist (working in the area of mind/body medicine). Decades ago, she founded the Center for Traditional Medicine, a public health clinic in rural indigenous Mexico that she directed for 25+ years. Today, she teaches and consults internationally for mental health professionals as well as tribal communities. Her latest book offers many recipes that answer the age-old question, "If food can be medicine, what should we eat in order to heal ourselves?"

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
