I am hopelessly addicted to this podcast. Some episodes I listen to again and again. Well done TFS team. Make sure to join their Facebook chat group.

An extra 10 mins would be great!

A fantastic insight into the study of humans that a lot of us would never think about.
It's well worth your time.
Scan though the episodes, you're sure to find a topic that piques your interest. Even if you don't agree with what they say, the new perspective will be thought provoking.
My one complaint ... the episodes should be about 10 minutes longer. Too often a great topic is cut off just when they're hitting their stride.

Definitely supplement my ‘dry’ university reading list with these podcasts. Pleasure and knowledge really can be synonymous
