The Best Podcast of It's Kind!
Dana C. Leighton delivers the information on Abnormal Psychology in a way that is easy to understand. I wish that more people would listen to this and be more tolerant of those who suffer from mental illnesses. We certainly need people to be more tolerant and understanding of people who suffer from these disorders, and Dana Leighton's Lectures are very enlightening. I hope to have the opportunity to hear a lot more from Dana C. Leighton in the future. I watch for new episodes of this podcast religiously. Thank you so much, Dana!
Great lecture but so many coughing & throat related noise
I really enjoy listening to Prof. Leighton's lectures. He makes phsychology so easy to understand. Only rather huge problems I have are the noises he makes. He coughs and drinks a lot, and those noises are amplified 1000 times, like sound of thunder. In Episode 3 biochemical neurotransmitter, he made huge water-sucking noise, coughed and came back up with completely altered voice. It was comical. I really wish he would physically move away from microphone when makes these horrible sounds. I put up with all and still listen to his podcast. Prof. Leighton, please don't make horrible noises into the microphone. I beg you.
I found this podcast incredibly entertaining, interesting, and very easy to follow. He is a great speaker and knows how to keep the audience interested. I just wish there were more episodes! My favorite podcast out there. I strongly recommend! :)
