A special bonus episode of Unfold, a UC Davis podcast, launches today just in time for the switch to daylight saving time on March 12.
There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who love daylight saving time, and those who don’t. UC Davis Health sleep medicine expert Heinrich Gompf is not a big fan of the clock change — or at least not the way we currently do it in the United States. In this episode of Unfold, he tells us why it’s so darn difficult for our bodies to adjust to the time change (the suprachiasmatic nucleus!) and offers tips to help you prepare and adapt when we do spring forward.
In this episode:
- Heinrich Gompf, sleep researcher, Department of Neurological Surgery, UC Davis Health
The Signal Award-winning podcast is available on Apple, Spotify, YouTube, Google Podcasts, on your smart speaker or wherever you get your podcasts. Original music for Unfold comes from UC Davis alumnus Damien Verrett and Curtis Jerome Haynes. Follow on Twitter at @Unfoldpodcast.
