Amazing show!

This show was recommended to my Behavioral Finance class by our professor so we can learn more about human behaviors even outside the school. As of this writing I have only listened to the first two episodes and they were amazing! I will definitely be listening more as it will not only help me with my course but also in real life.

Speech therapist to the rescue, please!

On October 23, 2023 I wrote the following review.

The content of the podcast is brilliant. Unfortunately, Katy Milkman did not make any effort, apparently, to fix her severe vocal fry at the end of sentences. Her vocal fry is so intense that we get distracted. Despite being outstanding, it is quite uncomfortable to listen to this podcast. Please get rid of this creaky voice at the end of sentences! A speech therapist is advisable to make this podcast one of the best, as it deserves to be.

Today, March 27, 2024, more than five months after, I hear no improvement on her extreme vocal fry. The admission of a problem is the first step to solve it. Unless Katy suffers from a self-serving bias, maybe a topic for a future show.

Katy is phenomenal. I love her podcast despite the fait that I cringe every time when I hear the end of her sentences. It is like the squeaking sound of chalk on a blackboard.

Absolutely fantastic because it takes research

Dr. Katy Milkman takes the research insights from academia and turns them into actionable insights - a rarity in today’s world. She has a variety of guests from lots of disparate realms and doesn’t just burnish her own reputation by staying within a small range of topics that pertain to her work. This is the closest I’ve found to the impact of “The Huberman Lab” podcast which has the same impact on me but through the medical lens. The stories are also super relatable and easy to understand while connecting research dots.
