    285 - What Do You Mean? - Celeste Kidd (rebroadcast)

    Is a hotdog a sandwich? Well, that depends on your definition of a sandwich (and a hotdog), and according to the most recent research in cognitive science, the odds that your concept of a sandwich is the same as another person's concept are shockingly low. In this episode we explore how understanding why that question became a world-spanning argument in the mid 2010s helps us understand some of the world-spanning arguments vexing us today.

Sehr interessanter Podcast

Hervorragender Podcast. Entspricht dem, was man sich nach dem Lesen des Blogs verspricht.
Klasse Interviews, stellt auch meistens den Bezug zum alltäglichen Leben her.

Empfehlenswert für jeden, der sich ein wenig für Psychologie interessiert, ohne das ganze übermässig akademisch angehen zu wollen.
