Mesmerized: With Guests Mara Rockliff & John List
It seems like every other week there's a news report about how coffee will help you live longer or will shorten your life. There are similar reports about vitamins and water consumption and any number of other health-related studies. So why do we see so much conflicting information around scientific research in the media?
In this episode of Choiceology with Katy Milkman, a look at the slippery problem of separating correlation from causation.
The Bad with the Good: With Guests Uzma Khan & Gustav Källstrand
You've probably caught yourself indulging after a workout or a game or a stretch of healthy eating. Maybe it was a pint or two after a soccer game or an extra piece of cheesecake after a vigorous hike. These indulgences are easier to justify after a healthy activity. Ironically, though, these indulgences can undo some of your hard work. So why do we tend to behave this way?
In this episode of Choiceology with Katy Milkman, a look at how we justify our decisions based on previous behavior.
Rebroadcast: Silver Linings: With Guests Annie Duke, Kassia St. Clair & Adam Grant
If you’ve ever lost a job, or been through a breakup, or failed an exam, you’ll know that the aftermath can be painful and disorienting. But for some percentage of those who experience these disappointing outcomes, unforeseen opportunities will arise.
In this episode of Choiceology with Katy Milkman, we look at the occasional upside of being forced to quit a career, or a relationship, or even a favorite route to work.
So Much in Common: With Guests Samantha Futerman, Anaïs Bordier & Kareem Haggag
When we feel angry or excited, or happy or sad, the reasons for those emotions may seem obvious. Angry? It was that argument with a spouse. Excited? It was that promotion at work. Happy? Must've been that delicious meal. Sad? It was that tearjerker film, for sure. But it turns out that we often mistake the root causes of our feelings and other experiences.
In this episode of Choiceology with Katy Milkman, we look at a family of biases that affects the way we understand behaviors, events, and emotions.
How You Spend It: With Guests Joshua Fields Millburn & Cassie Mogilner Holmes
“Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” A quintessentially American phrase from the Declaration of Independence. That “pursuit of happiness” takes many forms, but it turns out that some approaches are more likely to be successful, according to science.
In this episode of Choiceology with Katy Milkman, we look at a way to frame how you spend your time and money that may help you lead a happier life.
Not by a Long Shot: With Guests Katia Jordan & Craig Fox
Humans can easily distinguish between a zero-chance event (e.g., the Washington Nationals winning the World Series in 2022) and a sure thing (e.g., the sun coming up tomorrow). But in between those two clear outcomes, it turns out that we’re not great at estimating odds.
In this episode of Choiceology with Katy Milkman, a bias that affects the way we predict the likelihood of rare events.
