Carey and Rachel are back for the summer with The Checkup: Greatest Hits Edition! In this episode, “Teenage Zombies,” we explore three ways in which the adolescent mind is radically different from yours and mine. Do you beg your teenager to go to sleep earlier so he or she can function in the morning? Well, it turns out they physically can’t do that, explains Marvin Wang, a pediatrician at Massachusetts General Hospital, who’s on a mission to make middle and high schools start later in the day. Also, why adolescent brain development is the culprit behind so much bad (and sometimes law-breaking) decision-making and reckless behavior. And, a sex therapist talks about how Internet porn can sabotage a teenager’s ability to have a normal romantic relationship. Your hosts are Carey Goldberg and Rachel Zimmerman, former national newspaper reporters and co-producers of WBUR’s CommonHealth blog. Each episode of The Checkup features a different topic—previous topics included college mental health, sex problems, the Insanity workout, and vaccine issues. The Checkup podcast is produced at WBUR by George Hicks. Like CommonHealth on Facebook, and tell us and other listeners what you think of this week’s edition. Or drop a note to podcasts@slate.com. Carey Goldberg is the co-host of WBUR’s CommonHealth blog, and a former Boston bureau chief of the New York Times.
