Religion and the Brain – Psychology Today

If there are two concepts that seem like parallel lines that will never meet, they would have to be religion and neuroscience. One relies on unquestioning faith while the other is a scientific endeavor that attempts to understand how the brain works. What could these two possibly have to do with each other, and can they ever be reconciled? Behavioral neuroscientists have begun exploring these very questions, and are coming up with some very interesting insights.

People are often said to "lose themselves" in prayer. Scientists have found that the inferior parietal lobule (IPL) of the brain, responsible for generating a sense of self vs others, produces less activity than usual when people pray. If this sounds like science fiction, I don't blame you: How could a scientist possibly know what's going on inside a person's brain? The answer lies in a technique called functional magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI, that measures changes in blood flow associated with brain activity. In addition to the "quietening" of the IPL, fMRI studies have also shown increased activity, when people pray, in areas of the frontal lobe of the brain that are responsible for traits like attention. Similar regions would also show increased activity when people do other activities that involve paying attention, or being in focus.

Ive always had an on-again, off-again relationship with God. Like most people, I remember about his/her existence only when things go wrong, or if I need anything that I cannot achieve by myself. As soon as said task is accomplished, I promptly forget about him (or her) again, until next time.

Studies have found that people who feel they lack control over their lives are more susceptible to finding patterns where patterns don't exist. In one episode of the excellent National Geographic series Brain Games, the scientist who authored this study conducted an experiment: She asked two sets of people what they saw in images of static. The first set was in a relaxed state of mind, having successfully performed a puzzle task earlier. The second group was put under anxiety-inducing conditions by introducing an unreasonable time limit for the puzzle. The second set of people tended to be much more willing to "see" patterns in static images that had no pattern to be discerned whatsoever. This could possibly explain why I, for instance, tend to look for solace in a higher power only when I'm in distress.

It is essential to note, however, that simplistic inferences from studies such as this and the fMRI scans have to be taken with a generous pinch of salt. First, how does one even begin to define as complex a construct as prayer? Prayer means different things to different people, and all the various types of prayer chanting, meditating, surrender, praise would presumably have varied effects on the brain. In addition, most of the "prayer studies" are done on people who are already of a religious bent. How would prayer manifest itself neurologically in a person who does not believe as fervently, or not at all?

Meditation studies, on the other hand, are a little more streamlined, and are also helped by the fact that meditation is a simpler and more 'experimentable' construct than prayer. Studies on people practising transcendental meditation (TM) every day have shown that they have lower levels of hormones associated with stress, such as cortisol. Similar to simple relaxation, practicing TM led to lower respiration rates and heart rates, and better blood flow to the brain. Interestingly, you don't have to be a long-term meditator to reap its effects. People who have been through a five-week meditation course have shown improved attention and self-regulation, and similar reductions in stress hormones and improvements in heart rate. However, spending 20 minutes a day closing your eyes and meditating is not as straightforward as popping a pill, and just might not be everyone's cup of tea. Perhaps anything that relaxes you and takes your mind off your worries, be it a game of chess or a walk in the park with your toddler, would have similar effects.

All these effects on the brain are not surprising when you look at it in terms of practice, or exercise. When you train certain regions of the brain, they've been found to get "stronger." The most famous example of this effect is probably the London taxi driver study, which compared taxi drivers, who need to navigate different routes each day, with bus drivers, whose routes are more fixed. MRI scans revealed a greater volume in parts of the hippocampus of the brain that are involved in complex spatial navigation in the taxi drivers compared to the bus drivers. Interestingly, the more experienced a taxi driver was, the more pronounced the effect. Why should training our brains to be calmer be any different?

As a young child, I used to pray with utmost devotion. I almost miss that innocence now. Conversely, when I was slightly older, I remember being a little afraid of being alone in the room where all the idols were kept. Fear of the unknown, perhaps? One of the most common fears that children seem to have is that of the dark. The fear of the unknown is something that children carry into adulthood, albeit to a lesser degree.

Of course, only the more fortunate among us even have the luxury of philosophizing about God. As someone said, when a man is too busy thinking about where his next meal is going to come from, the last thing on his mind would be about the existence of God, or other such lofty matters."

Speaking of lofty matters, I became the parent to a baby girl two years ago. We pray together each day, more because I love seeing her face light up at the sight of the colorful idols than anything else. Someday, she will grow up and have her own ideas about these things. Until then, though, Im going to hold her tiny hand each day, and pray with her, and look on in awe at the sheer joy on her face.

At the end of the day, if our daughter chooses acceptance over judgement, inclusion over exclusion, and compassion and empathy over everything else, none of the other things faith included would matter.

Tic tac toe is a classic game. It can be played virtually anywhere and on anything, from a bar napkin to a computer screen to a chic wooden set.

However, while the game may appear simple, that is deceptive. How to win tic tac toe requires strategic thinking and planning to win the game or force a draw. To do this, however, there are certain strategies you need to master. Another deceptive game? Rock, paper, scissorheres how to win every time.

When youre the first one up, there is a simple strategy on how to win tic tac toe: put your X in any corner. This move will pretty much send you to the winners circle every time, so long as your opponent doesnt put their first O in the center box. This can make it harder to win, but it can happen.

If youre the second to go, it may be harder to win the game. If your opponent takes the center space, counteract that by placing your letter in a corner. If your opponent takes a corner space, take the middle space. This will force a draw in both cases. Winning is almost impossible unless a major mistake is made by your opponent.

But, if your opponent starts on an edge that is not a corner, you can win. There is an exact science on how to win tic tac toe if this is the case: Put your first letter in the center. You can only claim victory if your opponent puts their letter on the other edge. If not, you will have to settle for a draw.

Its actually difficult to win at tic tac toe every time. While the board is small, there are many variables that depend on the opponents placement. Playing the more advanced game of Scrabble? These 30 words can help you win every time.

Whether youre first up or the second one to go, how to win tic tac toe doesnt depend on your sequence. So, no, it doesnt matter if youre the X or the O, but it does matter where you play your letters.

There is still a possibility of winning the game if the center box has been taken. One way is to simply wait for your opponent to make a mistake and capitalize on that. However, if possible, occupy two opposing corners. This can allow you to win if your opponent places their letter in another corner.

If youre not sure what the next move is, experts point out that symmetry is always the best bet, so when contemplating a move, look for the one that will make the board as symmetrical as possible. Not only will it make your board look nice, but it will also block your opponent from being able to run away with a victory.

While a straight-up win may feel more satisfying, being able to force a draw requires skill and strategy. If your opponent takes the middle square with an X or O, the next move to ensure a tie is to place your letter in any of the corners. This way, there is no move that will allow them to win.

Why Tom Brady’s Controversial Approach To Fitness Is Changing The Game – Men’s Health

Every summer for the past seven years, the quarterback of the New England Patriots has come to this remote island for a beach boot camp. Its an intense part of his regimen, which has him training two to three hours daily to strengthen his arm, pack on more upper-body muscle to absorb hits, and sharpen his footwork and acceleration so that he can elude pass rushers.

As Bonner unzips an egg carton-like duffel bag with six game balls nestled inside, Brady uses a golf laser rangefinder to check the yardage. Its slightly off. Guerrero walks down the sideline, putting down cones every ten yards as measured by Brady. The QB slips into his shoulder pads, dons a silver helmet, and warms up using a white hand towel instead of a ball. He unfurls that smooth throwing motion that has tortured opposition players and thrilled New England fans for 19 years, culminating with a flick of the wrist that snaps the towel. Bonner and I put on receiver gloves and spread out ten yards downfield.

Bonners advice: Just put your hands up and the ball will hit them. Brady starts off throwing short bullets, and Bonners tip is dead-on: the balls slice through the hot air and slam into my hands. Brady goes through the gears, throwing 20-yarders and then 30-yarders. Then we drop to 60 yards. This is a maximum-effort drill for distance. Brady is throwing down the sideline, launching six passes as far and as straight as possible. Our job is to catch the balls and put themdown right where they would land. Guerrero and Brady tinker with his drop, bounce, step, torque and release. When a pass wobbles off course, Brady shouts to the palm trees, Thats an interception. When I drop a perfect spiral, he screams at me, Thats the game winner!

RELATED: This Is Exactly What Tom Brady Eats In A Day

ERIC RAY DAVIDSON

After the six passes, he jogs down, inspects the cluster and sips water from his Klean Kanteen. Most of the balls are within five or ten yards of one another around the 60-yard cone. He tells me his arm is as strong as it was when he entered the league, and I believe him. Catching these bombs is chewing up my forearms; theyre etched with lace marks and will end up being bruised for days. Later, Brady tells me that during games, only about 10 per cent of his passes do what he wants them to do. There are times when I release the ball and I know its perfect. I throw it with the exact pace and arc that I wanted, and to the exact location, he says. But when I throw it and it doesnt do that, in my mind [Im thinking,] Im fucking shit what did I do wrong? I fucking overstrode. Too little torque.

Guerrero notes that Brady will rarely throw 60-yard passes in a game. Last season, his longest pass was 49.9 yards by comparison, 23-year-old Bills QB Josh Allen completed the leagues longest in 2018, at 63.9 yards yet the point of todays drill isnt to lengthen Bradys throwing range but to improve his accuracy and velocity for shorter throws. He closes out the session zipping 30-yard passes todifferent corners of the end zone. His arm is looser now, the balls flying out faster. Brady notes the flawless passes with a There it is. He has thrown close to 80 balls this morning, and he doesnt want to stop. Im a little tortured, he says. At football, I want it to be so right.

Among Brady watchers, theres a belief that hes currently crafting a second Hall of Fameworthy career. The first one lasted from 2001 to 2015, with four Super Bowl wins. Part two spans the past three years and includes two more league championships. In between there were injuries, scandals, a suspension and a lawsuit, but the fact remains that Brady, the 199th draft pick of 2000, is now entering his 20th season in the NFL with a brand-new Super Bowl ring his sixth. No quarterback has ever played so well for so long, and his singleminded focus on winning, his never-say-die attitude, has become almost as famous as he and his very famous wife are. (Indeed, on the Facebook Watch docuseries Tom vs. Time, Gisele Bndchen lamented that even she has to share him with his first love: football.) Thats why trying to talk to Brady about things other than football politics, say, or the ideal gas law is usually a waste of everyones time, especially his. He would be the first to tell you that there is no more or less to his reality right now than the sport of football and his family. And the people Brady matters to at all dont really care about whom he votes for or the Game of Thrones dynamics of Pats Nation. They care about how he does it defying time and physics, defying thenatural laws of football and man to play like a kid half his age.

In anticipation of the day when he cant play like he used to, Brady is laying the groundwork for a new chapter of his life rooted in helping the rest of the world do what they love better and for longer. He founded his company in 2013, naming it TB12, and after some early success with a training facility outside Boston and a best-selling book, The TB12 Method, hes now developing it intoa full-blown lifestyle and fitness brand. This summer he opened a flagship gym in Boston, with plans to expand to New York City and Los Angeles next year (and after that to Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, Miami, London and Toronto). Hes also gotten into commerce and content there are TB12-branded newsletters, workout videos, brain games, exercise equipment and protein supplements and snacks. His companys stated goal is simple: To redefine strength, health and wellness for an entire generation of men.

Thats a big lift. And to do it, hes got to win over the people whod rather chew glass than watch the Patriots win, and the people who call BS on his and Guerreros approach to training, and the people who look at him and his career and his family and think that maybe some guys shouldnt have all the luck. Make that a huge lift, but anyone whos betting against the 199th draft pick of 2000 and the owner of six Super Bowl rings clearly hasnt been paying attention.

Post-workout, we go to the beachfront house where Brady is staying with Guerrero, Bonner and Jack, the 12-year-old son he shares with his ex, actress Bridget Moynahan. (Bndchen is in Costa Rica with their two children, nine-year-old Benjamin and seven-year-old Vivian.) Brady can be extremely deliberate when he speaks, often pausing before answering questions because he knows better than most how words can take on whole new meanings in the context-free vortex that is social media. As he grazes on chips and guac and sips water (with TB12 electrolytes, of course), he tells me about the moment he realised that hed spent most of his life thinking about physical fitness and strength training all wrong.

You gotta understand, he says of his early years in the NFL, I was like every other American kid. I believed if you want to get good, you gotta go squat and bench, and its all I ever did. But then he started to feel pain in his right elbow. It was 2006 Brady was already a three-time Super Bowl champion, but his QB rating that season was only 87.9, almost ten points below his career average of 97.7 and he was suffering severe tendinitis because he threw so much and lifted so heavy. The cycle of throw-ice-repeat reached a crisis point he had to take days off from practice. My teammate Willie McGinest said to me, Dude, if you want to keep playing, you gotta go see Alex.

Guerreros background is in traditional Chinese medicine, but Brady was desperate after striking out with mainstream doctors. I had forearm muscles that were like rocks and biceps muscles that were like rocks. I had my biceps pulling this way and my forearm muscle tugging that way, and the tendon was just on fire, he says, tapping his elbow. Guerrero felt the inflamed tendon, Brady says, and said that what were going to do through pliability although we didnt even call it pliability then, because we had to come up with a word for it is effectively lengthen the forearm muscle and lengthen the biceps and triceps through deep-force work. Alex did it one time and I was like, What? The last ten years of my life Ive been in pain, and now, after hes worked on my forearms, biceps and triceps, theres no more pain in my elbow? It clicked for me right away.

Guerrero then treated Bradys shoulder pain (from too much throwing) and groin problem (from too much squatting), and Brady was hooked. A helmet to his knee caused an ACL injury in 2008, and he did all his rehab with Guerrero. At that point, I said, Alex is going to do everything. Alex is going to take care of me. Today, each of Bradys daily sessions with Guerrero begins on a massage table, with deep-force treatment of 20 muscle groups, each for about 20 seconds. Guerrero strokes the muscle rhythmically, and then Brady starts flexing and relaxing the muscle at a faster and faster pace while doing a functional movement.

ERIC RAY DAVIDSON

Then the real 40-minute workout begins. The rub on Brady was always that he had a Division I upper body but the lower body of a scrub (so said his high school coach in a positive piece in The Washington Post) and plodding platypus feet (real nice, high school teammates). Thats why Guerrero focuses on speed, agility and core stability. Most days, Brady does a lot of high-resistance-banded movement drills (squats, push-ups, push presses) along with plenty of lunging, squatting and planking in different directions against the tension of the band. After the workout, its back to the treatment table, though this time there is less force; its to speed recovery by increasing blood flow and flushing lactic acid.

Guerrero believes that as athletes age, their understanding of the game improves but their bodies start to betray them. Ive always thought if wecan figure out a way to make Toms body keep up with his brain, hell be able to play a long time.

Im more of a thinker, obviously, than a physical specimen, says Brady. Its as close to a humblebrag as he will get, yet he does invest time and energy into training his brain to make smarter choices faster. He spends 15 minutes per day using TB12 BrainHQ (developed with Posit Science, a leader in online training for brain plasticity), drilling his brain speed and pattern recognition. That prep, plus film study, plus his well-known memory (he can accurately and vividly recall plays from decades ago), plus 19 years of experience, give Brady special powers at the line of scrimmage. Like Neo in The Matrix stay with me here he can seemingly slow down time in his mind and bend it to his will. He even talks in Neo-isms. There is a comfort in the known, as opposed to being uncomfortable with the unknown, he says. There are not many things that I unknow in football. You call the play. I see the defense; I know what to do. Say theres five guys going on routes. Wherever the defense guards are, Im going to throw it the opposite way. By the time I have the ball in my hands, I know what I want to do with it.

A few days before the trip to the Bahamas, I travelled to the TB12 Sports Therapy Centre at Patriot Place, the mall outside Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Brady and Guerrero opened this facility in 2013. Since then, the team has treated an estimated 3000 people, from a three-year-old who needed help learning to walk to a 95-year-old trying to recover mobility after a fall. The majority of clients fall into two categories: athletes under 20 looking for an edge and 40-somethings looking to maintain their peak, says TB12 CEO John Burns. Its a 560-square-metre space with a central patch of turf dotted with red foam rollers and vibrating spheres, a cluster of cardio machines, a basketball hoop and four treatment rooms on both sides. Theres no clanking of weights, because there are no weights. Instead, there are racks with different-coloured bands designating their resistance. This centre is the proof of concept that inspired the new 930-square-metre flagship TB12 Sports Performance and Recovery Centre in Boston.

What distinguishes TB12 from other gyms is the emphasis on hands-on deep-tissue work as part of every workout. My bodywork coach isfaster. Its a freaky, unfamiliar feeling, but its also invigorating. I feel fully charged. Then I stand and do a series of lower-body and core-stability drills that isolate the weaknesses on my left side. Done regularly over eight weeks, these drills would correct the imbalance and make me a more efficient runner, says Boucher. Its tough, and by the end Im drenched in sweat. Then its another rubdown, but more gentle. Although Im exhausted, I feel exhilarated.

Theres a lazy persons appeal in the structure of the workout. Like many guys, I often skip my warm-ups and cool-downs. With TB12, those elements are baked in. More broadly, TB12 is riding the rising tide of self care, a trend evidenced by the spread of mobility classes, the emergence of gyms like Lymbr and Stretch*d, andthe proliferation of expensive self massage devices such as Theragun and Hyperice Hypervolt. At the new TB12 flagship, clients will be able to do one-on-one sessions with coaches, all of whom train under Guerrero for three months. Plus, there will be group classes that teach self-treatment using foam rollers and your own hands.

ERIC RAY DAVIDSON

Despite his star pupils success, Guerrero has faced criticism from exercise researchers who complain about the lack of scientific evidence behind the TB12 approach. Specifically, experts note that muscle pliability is not a physiologically accurate term and that its unlikely that deep-tissue work lengthens and softens muscles. Guerreros response is to point to Tom Brady, and Brady, for his part, is happy to corroborate. I absolutely know 100 per cent that it works, and thereality is Im just a client who lives by the teachings. He also feels compelled to share his knowledge with others, especially his teammates. Say I see a guy who has a sore hamstring. Ill think, His hip flexors are too tight; his hamstring is too tight. But the guy might say, My hamstring must be weak; I must do more hamstring curls. It crushes me. I freak out. I need this teammate on the field!

Its not necessarily that Guerreros detractors are wrong. There isnt a ton of research to support his claims, but thats mostly because researchers are still figuring out how manual muscle therapy works, and they dont appreciate Guerrero (and, by extension, Brady) getting too far out in front of science. Inventing terminology like pliability and explaining it with pseudoscience drives researchers batshit crazy, saysPat Davidson, a respected exercise physiologist. What Guerrero is doing works. Theres no need to explain why. Davidson has a theory, though: deeptissue work may be effective because the stroking sensations give your brain more information about your body. As a result, your brain feels safer allowing your body to move and it sends greater motor-output signals to your muscles, enabling them to display a greater range of motion, velocity and force. Maybe. Maybe not. But it works okay for Brady.

Perhaps the closest analogy to his mission with the TB12 brand is Gwyneth Paltrow and Goop hey, world, heres a celebrity who is the ideal spokesperson for their own brand, because if it works for them, it can work for you! and just as Paltrow comes with certain baggage, so does Brady. Some people love to hate him, whether theyre jealous or think hes arrogant or both. I present my Goop theory to Brady and he scrunches his face at the comparison. He emphasises that you dont need to be like a cyborg to be healthy and fit; you just have to make more good decisions than bad ones. But I mention that trolls target Paltrow in part because she puts so much stock in the role of choice in health and happiness and wellness. Its easy for her to make good decisions shes Gwyneth Paltrow and that selfassurance can grate on people. No one has to be Tom Brady, he says. I justget to be Tom Brady. You get to be you. Everyone has a choice. But if you want to be good at sports, you have to work hard at it. If you want to be healthy, you have to work at it. But you cant say, I want to be healthy, then eat shitty food and do crappy workouts.

Contrary to popular belief, Brady claims hes not militant about his diet. I have a friend who freaks out if its not the most organic this or that, and Im like, That stress is going to harm you way more than eating that chip is. That said, Brady tends to eat the same healthy foods over and over: berryand-banana smoothies pre-workout; avocado and eggs for breakfast; salads with nuts and fish for lunch; hummus, guacamole or mixed nuts for snacks; and roasted vegetables and chicken for dinner. He rolls his eyes when I ask about his favourite cheat meal. If Im craving bacon, I have a piece. Same with pizza. You should never restrict what you really want. Were humans, here for one life.

If Brady is mellowing out at all which is debatable its probably because there is nothing like having children to give someone a little perspective. He recalls how after the Patriots lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2017 Super Bowl, he walked into the locker room and found his three kids in tears. I had to put my emotions aside so I could deal with their emotions, he recalls. I said, Guys,look, Daddy doesnt always win. That isnt the way life is. You try really hard thats the most important thing. If you gave it your best, you live with the outcome.

Whenever Brady talks about his family, which he does easily and without prompting, he comes to life, waving those long arms and breaking into laughter as he describes how each of his kids delights him. Jack is just like me he holds a lot in. Benny lets it all out. Vivi, she doesnt care. Theyre going to be their own selves, not who you want them to be. Elaborating on the topic, he says: Jack loves sports. He wants to try hard and he never wants to disappoint his dad. That was me. Id wake up early on weekends to do stuff with my dad. Thats why I didnt party a lot. If Dad wanted to golf, I wanted to be there with him. And if I ever missed those things, it would crush me.

When Benny came along, I thought he would be just like Jack. So I was like, Cmon, lets do this. And he was like, Nope. And I was like, What? No, do this! And Gisele kept saying to me, Would you effing understand that your son is different? It was hard for me. I was like, What do you mean? Hes a boy; he should just do all these things that I do. The reality is Benny just likes different things. And its great because now I just have to go do whathe wants to do. When we do that, we have the best time. Hes like, OMG, Dad, youre so funny. He loves joking, and I joke back.

Jack pops in, taking a break from playing Mortal Kombat, and asks a burning question. Dad, is Jumanji 2 almost finished? Brady, who knows Jumanji 2s star, Dwayne Johnson, and DMs him regularly, cracks up. Jack would rather hang out with DJ than me, clearly, as you can see, which I love.

Next up, Brady turns his attention to Bndchen. Gisele is not really into sports, he says. Shes like a kite flying in the sky, and Im kind of tethering her. Sometimes I have to hold on hard. Their backgrounds are in fact very different. Giseles life has been very nontraditional, says Brady. She left home at 14; she lived in Japan at 16 in an era with no cell phones. She lived in New York City at 17 without speaking English. In her mind, there are no boundaries. Why cant you do that? Why do you have to go to school? Why cant you just leave and live in adifferent country? In her reality, you can. Coming from mine, it was very different. This is what you do: you go to elementary school, go to high school, go to college. In her mind, why do you have to do any of those things? And you know what? Shes right. Im the one that had to go, Youre right! And thats helped me grow.

I cant help thinking he might have his kite metaphor backwards. While Brady is watching untold hours of game film and focusing on squeezing out yet another winning season, Bndchen is nurturing and protecting their brood and out earning him some years and showing up on game days to cheer him on. So Brady wants to buck mainstream science and create new training protocols. Why cant you do that? Brady wants to play until hes 45. Why cant you do that? Maybe Brady is the kite and Bndchen is the tether that allows him to soar.

After the morning throwing session, we take a golf buggy to thebeach. Guerrero paces out 30 yards, placing a cone every 10. Naturally, Brady remeasures. Then, back in shoulder pads and helmet and holding a ball in the midday sun (Practice like you play, he says), he starts sprint drills in the sugary sand. Guerrero holds a band around Bradys waist to add resistance and make him drive his feet with greater force so that he can accelerate faster. Jack joins in. Guerrero gives him a ten-yard head start for a 20-yard race. Copy Jack he has good form, Guerrero quips. Hes faster than Daddy already! Other times, Brady drops back while Guerrero rushes at him with boxing pads and jabs his torso before shouting, Go! Then Brady sprints. Im familiar with starting at the bottom and fighting my way to start, he explains. Ive kept that mentality. Ive never felt like, Man, I sure cant get any better. Off Brady sprints. The man with the golden arm and the platypus feet, grunting hard and kicking sand, still chasing perfection.

This is How National Geographic Has Changed Since Disney Acquisition With Upcoming Disney+ Launch – The Streamable

Posted on October 11, 2019 at 8:58 am PDTby Luke Stangel

The Streamable is reader-supported and may earn an affiliate commission when you sign up with our links.

National Geographic will be getting prime placement on Disney+ when it launches next month. The brand, best known for its 131-year-old magazine, came under the Disney umbrella in March, as part of Disneys $71 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

When Disney+ launches on Nov. 12, National Geographic will get its own tile, alongside Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar with content like the streaming-exclusive show The World According to Jeff Goldblum and the Academy-Award winner Free Solo.

In an interview with Adweek, National Geographic Global Networks president Courteney Monroe told the publisher of being a featured part of the Disney+ launch, Those are some incredible brands, with a staggering quality of content. So the bar is really high.

The World According to Jeff Goldblum was originally developed for National Geographics linear TV channel, but was moved to Disney+ following the acquisition. It follows the actor as he explores topics hes personally interested in.

Monroe said National Geographics content hasnt changed under Disneys ownership, and will get additional prominence with Disney+. The emergence of Disney+ for us has in no way changed our programming on the channel, Monroe told Adweek. We are still producing the same amount of programming, the same genres of programming for the channels, the same number of hours. Its just additive.

At Disneys Investor Day in April, National Geographic said it would also produce a new Disney+ exclusive called Magic of Animal Kingdom, which follows the animal care experts at Disneys Animal Kingdom and Epcots SeaBase aquarium. At launch, National Geographic will provide Disney+ with more than 250 hours of programming from more than two dozen shows including a new season of Brain Games with new host Keegan-Michael Key.
