Great guy, Great podcast!

I've been following this pod since seeing David give a talk at UX Copenhagen last year. He does an amazing job of breaking down the complex nature of cognitive bias and personally I've found it really helpful to be able to hold up a mirror to my own bias and understand it better. 100% recommend.

Ah uummm

You use way way way too much word fillers in your podcasts. All I hear is “and um”, “yeah ummmm”, “ because ummmmm”.... really off putting. Great knowledge and context but the word fillers throughout this podcast was a massive turn off. Can’t listen to it. So distracting.

One of my fav pods

Dave knows his stuff and has an exceptional podcast voice. This is a really really interesting podcast for a variety of reasons but I 100% recommend it to researchers and people who work in marketing. I was also lucky enough to meet Dave at a conference and he's a really nice person, which is a bonus.
