Great insights about the way people's minds work
Shankar Vedantam consistently finds some of the most interesting social science research around and brings it to life on NPR, and now on his new podcast. As a Social Psychologist, I'm thrilled that he's not only bringing my field's research to a curious audience, but that he's doing it responsibly, without resorting to making sensational claims based on flimsy data -- his stories are always thoughtful and well researched.
