Professor Todd pointed out a sad truth that psychology field is losing its philosophical roots while taking on too much cheesy statistical analysis of garbage data to support garbage thoughts.

Warm Welcome

I really want to thank Prof Todd! I am just beginning to major in psychology and this podcast has helped to lay a foundation for me. It’s not just a foundation to prepare me for my courses, but a foundation of energy and enthusiasm for the study! So well done, such a great listen. Thank you Prof Todd for all your efforts.

Captures and maintains your interest!

Not your everyday history lesson. One of the most engaging overviews I've ever heard. If i knew anyone who had the slightest curiosity of how psychology was formed, I would direct them here.
