Making learning a pleasure
I stumbled upon this podcast a few weeks ago and have not stopped listening since.
I'm thought I knew everything about abnormal psychology and social psychology but these lectures are so interesting and informative that I am considering going back and doing another degree. Then again, maybe I don't need to since I learning so much from these podcasts!
Sound quality is awful (sadly can’t hear the questions being asked in the background and the chalk board writing was a real treat around episode 5). Unfortunately the lecturers “Ums” and “Ahs” at the start of every.single.sentence and then every third word thereafter were that intensely irritating I actually shouted ‘shut up’ at the stereo right about the time he was talking about involuntary outbursts...
fantastic and highly recommended
excellent podcast. Really easy to listen to and delivered in a way that you feel you are almost in the lecture room. very informative and easily absorbed. Thanks Dana for a fab intro into ab/psych.
