Wonderful Podcast and an Inspiration!

I love this podcast! Garth and Eric are great hosts, excellent interviewers, and awesomely insightful. Their guests are expert psychology instructors that offer some of the best teaching advice. I've incorporated much of the suggestions into my own teaching of psych. Finally, this podcast was one of the inspirations for starting my podcast! Keep up the great work, fellas!

Great Psychological Podcast

I personally had Garth as an instructor in a previous psychology course, I really enjoyed his teaching methodology. This podcast is interesting to me as it bridges the gap between the various teachings of psychology but also how it’s applied in a classroom. Highly recommend!
