If you’ve ever wondered whether psychopaths like Hannibal Lecter and Patrick Bateman really exist outside the imaginations of Hollywood screenwriters and film directors, why ghosts only seem to appear at night, and about the true meaning of the Book of Revelation’s most enduring and enigmatic mystery – 666, the number of the beast - then welcome aboard Flight Psycho Schizo Espresso and observe the “fasten seatbelt” sign!

    Episod 18 - Monet, Monet, Monet – It’s A Rich Man’s World: Pigments Of The Imagination With One Of The World’s Top Art Forgers, David Henty

    Episod 18 - Monet, Monet, Monet – It’s A Rich Man’s World: Pigments Of The Imagination With One Of The World’s Top Art Forgers, David Henty

    David Henty was such a brilliant art forger that when he got out of prison – and no, he wasn’t ‘framed’ – people started asking him for authentic David Henty forgeries of Picasso, Dali, and other ‘wall of famers’ to hang in their homes and offices. In this episode he joins Bruce & @TheRealDrKev to explain how an early ‘brush’ with the law as a passport forger propelled him into the world of fine art; how his photographic memory means he only needs to glance at a painting once in order to recreate it; how cover bands and art forgers really aren’t all that different from each other; how forgers are better placed than psychologists to get into the minds of the Old Masters …and how, if Kev & Bruce ever fall on hard times, there’s a Picasso with their name on it in his studio.

    Episode 17 - Sexbot, Sexbot, You’re My Sexbot (and Baby, You Can Turn Me On)

    Episode 17 - Sexbot, Sexbot, You’re My Sexbot (and Baby, You Can Turn Me On)

    After exploring the wormholes and warp drives of human intelligence in the previous episode, @TheRealDrKev and Bruce beam themselves up into the virtual world of artificial intelligence. The questions they ponder are so deep they trigger the development of entirely new areas of the brain! Could rock bands of the future be one day made up entirely of robots? Ahem…are there some out there already? If advanced robotic creations develop a belief in God then what kind of God would it be? Would it be one of the gods we’ve actually already ‘got’…or would we have a new supreme being on our playlists? And how about this: If you found out that your partner was cheating on you with an extremely lifelike sexbot would it count as infidelity? More importantly, should someone be picking up the phone to Tom Jones…?

    Why Do Cats Sh*t In a Box? Prof. Mike Anderson Part 2

    Why Do Cats Sh*t In a Box? Prof. Mike Anderson Part 2

    Bruce and @TheRealDrKev continue their deep dive into the shadowy world of intelligence with world-renowned cognitive scientist Mike Anderson. In Part Two the spotlight falls on what, precisely, intelligence is…illuminating, in turn, the spectrums of both animal and artificial intelligence. Is ‘true intelligence’ only possible in humans, Bruce and Kev ask? Is intelligence overrated: Is it really as important as we all seem to think? What, exactly, do we mean by ‘genius’’? And how come some of us are able to recite the number pi to 3 million decimal places but find it impossible to order a ham sandwich for lunch?

    9 out of 10 people are stupid. But that’s OK – we’re in the 1%.( Prof. Mike Anderson P1)

    9 out of 10 people are stupid. But that’s OK – we’re in the 1%.( Prof. Mike Anderson P1)

    World-renowned cognitive scientist Professor Mike Anderson joins the podcast to talk to us about one of psychology’s most controversial topics: Intelligence. @TheRealDrKev, Bruce and Mike tackle all the big questions head on. ‘What exactly is Intelligence?’ they ask. ‘What can computers and smart phones tell us about our brains?’ ‘Is there such a thing as an optimal level of intelligence?’ ‘Are intelligent people happier?’ And: ‘Is intelligence like underwear: good to have but better not to show off?’

    What comes out at Two Minutes To Midnight and makes you want to Run To The Hills? Extraordinarius Bruceickinsoni!

    What comes out at Two Minutes To Midnight and makes you want to Run To The Hills? Extraordinarius Bruceickinsoni!

    Bruce and @TheRealDrKev return for a brand new series of Psycho Schizo Espresso - and are more fired up than ever! Perhaps that’s because Bruce has just finished his hugely popular one man speaking tour of the UK & North America and Kev has just taken up his new position as Australia’s first Professor of the Public Understanding of Psychology at the University of Adelaide. Join the podcast as they plan ahead for what’s to come in Series 2 and catch up on the latest news…including how Bruce has had a newly discovered species of spider named after him (apparently it’s small, harmless, and only comes out at night – hmmh…no connection there, then!) and how a recent study in Finland has shown that heavy metal is good for your mental health.

    Episode 13 - Beyond Reason: Life, Logic & Language with Steven Pinker

    Why does ‘done and dusted’ sound better than ‘dusted and done’? What makes a good swear word? Are we really as rational as we make out? In this, the final episode of Season 1 of Psycho Schizo Espresso, Bruce and @TheRealDrKev chat to Harvard linguist, cognitive scientist, and bestselling author Steven Pinker about the science of talking and thinking…and discover that, sometimes, a good insult can be worth a thousand compliments. Stupid f@*kwits!

    We'll be back in a month! So keep subscribed to Psycho Schizo Espresso for the first episode of Season 2.

Entertaining and informative

I could seriously listen to Bruce, and Dr. Kev talk about paint drying. They always have good topics, and good guests. The new episode are getting better, and seem to explore more on the topic of each episode.

AJ Nic ,

Excellent: entertaining & informative

Great podcast, easy to listen to and the guests are great.

Madison Sq. Pk. ,

Loved the Wilko Johnson episode

Great interview with the legend that is Wilko Johnson. Stories you’ll hear nowhere else and even a Handley Page Heron which impressed Bruce no doubt.
Yes to renaming Southend Airport.
