Life saver!

Wish Dr. Hendriksen’s book and this podcast existed when I was a teen/in college. I wish the episodes were longer though, I think 30 mins would be perfect!

Great info from a qualified source!

I love the format of this podcast - clear, focused, brief, and honest. A great way to start the morning or a perfect pick-me-up in the middle of the day. Can’t wait to hear more!!

Useful Infotainment, honest and fast!

I really enjoy this podcast! The information is presented in an organized and easy to understand style. There are always light points (this girl got JOKES!, LOL), the pacing of information given is absolutely perfect (I get super bored and daydream when it’s too slow, and if it’s too fast I have to keep rewinding bc I miss it).. I study psychology on my own and enjoy the field, and still I learn as recent studies are explained- how they were conducted as well as what they mean to me and others. I love how the narrative flows; I never feel spoken down to or unsure of what was meant- it actually feels like I’m having a conversation with a good friend and I just haven’t had a chance to speak yet. Often when a fact is shared, I think to myself, “Ha! She didn’t even mention XYZ. I’m going to have to #savvypsychologist her!,” then she actually answers my thought in her next sentence. Is she reading my mind?? Strange memories of the Romper Room lady.. Anyway, I give 5 stars easily, I highly recommend to friends, and I find myself automatically using the information I hadn’t even realized I’d absorbed.
