Psychology for everyone

I love how this show take the latest in psychology research and connect it to common situations and bigger trends in society. As a student in Media Research I focus on changes in technology and the effects it has on society. I find this podcast keeps me updated on the other side of these issues; what happens inside of us. Also super helpful to understand your own thoughts and reactions in your personal life!

Insightful and relevant

High quality and relevant material here! Presented through deep conversations, voices from genuine and honest sources of experience, and of course good old neuroscience and research. It's a really lovely mix if you're into the greater ways our society or societies are held together and function. Keep it coming! <3
