Great podcast

Social science around a specific theme made accessible in understandable terms. They know how to be entertaining and informative every single podcast. Love it

Listening voraciously

Hidden Brian is my new favorite podcast.
Every episode draws me in, weaves a story with the latest social science, and slips some interesting references into my pocket for later.

One of my favs!

Every week I look forward to this podcast! Beautifully composed stories that make you think about your own behavior for at least (!) a few hours.
