"What Your I-Tunes Rating Says About Your AMAZING Podcast"...

Michael Britt is like that undergrad professor whose Gen Psych course was required for your intended major, and after one 100-Level Seminar you are dashing to the Registrar to beg them to allow you to change to a Psych Major. Professor Britt keeps one foot in traditional pedagogy and another in pop culture, using our daily interests and concerns ("What Do Your Amazon.Com Recommended Buys Say About You?") to illustrate classic theorems of Freud, Skinner, Maslow, and everyone else that you haven't cared about in decades.... until you realized their daily relevance! I am a performing arts instructor, and have listened (and re-listened) to the full canon of Britt's casts, many of which have left me with great insights into my students' previously unfathomable behavior. A must for teachers, students, parents, children- pretty much everyone with a sense of humour, an inquiring mind, and a desire to better comprehend their place in the world.

Great for Psychology students and anyone interested in people!

This is a great podcast for Psychology majors, minors, and instructors, or anyone else who's interested in why we do what we do. Michael Britt manages to take everyday occurances (some mundane and some pretty crazy) and gets you to look at them from different angles. It makes learning about psychology fun and easy by using interesting examples that you can relate to and visualize. Even if you're not a psych major you'll love the topics he covers like "My Favorite Weird Psychology Studies" and "Big Brother: What Your Grocery Store Knows About You." This is a great place for instructors to get some ideas about making class interesting and relatable to students. I love to see what topic this guy is going to cover next!

Britt is Brilliant

I don't have much to say besides that this podcast uses wit and real world scenarios, after all it is "psychology in everyday life", Mr. Britt's banter is informative and entertaining and his podcast is a joy to listen to.
