    Courtney Keim on Being an I-O Psychologist All Along (Part 2)

    Before she became an I-O psychologist, Courtney Keim worked as a server and bartender. In this second part of a two-part episode, Dr. Keim reflects on why bartenders make good I-O psychologists, how she chose I-O psych by a process of elimination, and how to read the early warning signs that you, too, may be a little I-O psychologist all along.

    Courtney Keim on Being an I-O Psychologist All Along (Part 1)

    Before she became an I-O psychologist, Courtney Keim worked at a residential treatment center for traumatized boys. In this first part of a two-part episode, Dr. Keim reflects on how those six brutal weeks influenced her later career as an I-O psychologist and professor. Along the way, we discuss integrity tests, stress, coping, and those little glimmers of insight that convince some of us that we may have been a little I-O psychologist all along, even before we knew about the field.

    Sy Islam and Gordon Schmidt on Debunking and Testing Business Practices

    Should we should spend less time testing our own theories and more time testing business practices as they're actually implemented in organizations? Can I-O psychologists improve Lean Management?

Finalllyyyy!

I’ve been on the hunt for a good podcast and this one is gold. The podcast has relevant information for today’s students as well as is consistent in uploads which is something I can’t say about other many psychology podcasts.

Good info- background music is very distracting

The information in this podcast is interesting and useful, but it’s almost hard to listen to due to the distracting and loud background music that is added to the interviews. It’s completely unnecessary and just takes away from the information.

Get rid of the music

I’m pretty sure this could be a great podcast. What ruins it for me is that it’s edited by splicing bits of what someone says together with loud, distracting elevator background music.
