Fantastic podcast

It's like a highlight reel from psychology class with no homework and an extremely interesting and well-spoken professor! I can't get enough.

Everything I've been looking for

Took me too long to find it, but this podcast is the perfect mixture of neuro psychology, behavioral economics, philosophy, and scientifically valid life advice. With guests like Steven Novella and Daniel Pink, need I say any more?

Love it

I've always thought that more people should be aware of themselves, and that human psychology is not a study solely for scientists and psychiatrists. Each person can benefit and be humbled by a deeper look into oneself and the psyche. It's podcasts like this and books written by this gentleman that makes this stuff more mainstream and easier to digest. Speaking of digesting, the "cookies" bit works fine, seeing how the show is meant to be a light-hearted and fun affair. Keep doing what you're doing, sir. Great job.
