    Boredom: Diddling the Devil's Playground

    Boredom: Diddling the Devil's Playground

    In this not-at-all-boring episode, Tania and Brian explore the psychology of boredom. They answer fascinating questions like, "what is boredom?" "is it good or bad for us?" "how can we become less boredom-prone?" and "what will happen if you leave Brian in a room for 15 minutes with nothing to do?"

    Operant Conditioning: Reinforcers, punishers, and pigeon missiles

    Operant Conditioning: Reinforcers, punishers, and pigeon missiles

    Since we've been busy training our pig, Outlaw Josey, we wanted to break down the psychology of learning through Operant Conditioning. We talk about reinforcement, punishment, the difference between punishers and aversives, and the power of shaping. We even test out B.F. Skinner's theory of language acquisition by trying to teach Brian to say a word.

    Give us some positive reinforcement:

Love this podcast!

Sweet and funny and informative. I find myself talking about things I’ve learned in this podcast at home, in my psych classes, and with my friends. You will not regret listening to this!

Content good. Delivery, meh.

This would be fascinating if the male host didn’t laugh the entire time. The content is good, but I couldn’t get through it - too distracting.

Highly recommended
