My Favourite Podcast

This is my absolute favourite all-time podcast. I love learning about social science research and find the reporting and delivery in this series to be phenomenal. It is topical, poignant, accessible and non-judgemental. I would (and do) recommend this to anyone with an interest in psychology, behavioural economics, social science and, to be honest, humanity in general - it spans so many aspects of life.

I hope it will continue for years to come. Thanks for the great series, NPR!

Top 3 podcasts ever!

Concise, informative, balanced, engaging. Provides easy access to sometimes complex, almost always important, issues involving human psychology. And what in our world is not profoundly affected human psychology! The latest episodes in 2019 are impressive in capturing many fascinating facets of a single issue. The world is made better by every new episode.
