    (Pandemic Edition) Scarcity and Marketing

    (Pandemic Edition) Scarcity and Marketing

    In a time of hoarding, Caroline Roux is one of the precious few experts on scarcity. We talk about why people hoard, and what happens when everyone takes a little more than they need. If you don't leave enough hand sanitizer for your neighbor, you endanger yourself and everyone else.
    We also get some related marketing tips for your business and more importantly, I find out how I can dupe more people into supporting my podcast.

    Caroline is Associate Professor of Marketing and Concordia University Research Chair in Psychology of Resource Scarcity.

    Yup. You read that right. 
    Sure she does a bunch of more sciencey sounding things too, but who more fitting at a time like this than a cancer researching badass with a delightful science podcast about apocalypse scenarios?

    (Pandemic Edition) Animals & Societies

    (Pandemic Edition) Animals & Societies

    Jennifer Verdolin joins me as I apologize for not heeding her early prophetic warning and ask her to take a whack at how long we will have to be physical distancing. 
    It's a charming, fun, and educational conversation about how animals deal with illness, responsible pet care during a pandemic, and why cues of scarcity are making us buy 80 year supplies of toilet paper.
