Can’t Stop Listening

The podcast that got me back into podcasts. Every episode holds my complete attention throughout. The content is interesting and thought provoking. They are well written and edited. The topics are relevant and important. As someone who recently completed an undergrad in psychology, I’m a bit biased. The structure of the episodes in this series has helped me have more effective conversations with family members about topics in psychology as it provides framework for issues. This allows me to add details I recall from my courses when necessary without losing others. I am recommending this series to everyone.

Depth is gone

Used to look forward to new episodes, but not anymore. This is fiction not journalism. They take an interesting premise, scratch the surface and walk away or worse make up stuff then walk away. “Want a great mystery about a fake profile and a sluthy investigation into who’s behind it?! Just kidding, we didn’t work hard enough to figure it out so we wrote a script and interviewed an actor instead... how about an intriguing story about kids who inhabit the thoughts of people far beyond their life experience? This boy has memories of a life he hasn’t lived!! We got some recordings of him not exhibiting these memories... and we’re spent. Phew, adulting is hard!” And even though Click and Clack are ashamed every time Invisibilia says it... this in NPR.

Families broadening their minds

I just love this podcast for all its depth and values on the human mind. It is wonderful to broaden logic and philosophy within the family unit; kids thinking outside their daily lives about other aspects of the world. Not to mention growth within our adult minds. Axioms are making links, links are creating patterns in behavior, behavior is changing who we are for the better!
