Great for anyone who's interested
Dr. Leighton has done a great job. It's easy to follow along to and very helpful. It kept my attention the whole time and I would recomend this to anyone who has an interest in psychology.
My only complaint would be the sound quality at times and how I can barely hear the students talking.
Dr .leighon I’m enjoying the podcast. It’s very interesting and insightful. However it is difficult to hear your students responses, and questions or other inputs which I think would benefit your podcast. Otherwise great job.
