There are many things about the human experience that the more we learn about, the less we understand, so James Keys and Tunde Ogulana discuss how sleep is generally understood (1:29), how various factors can influence the ability to get good sleep (12:58), and the importance of sleep and how it plays a large role in the ability to function (18:02).  The guys also take a look at how willpower works and is used, and how it is used and understood can influence how effective it can be used (29:11) and an interesting technique that people seem to use both consciously and unconsciously to improve willpower (44:51).
