You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of self delusion that explores topics related to cognitive biases, heuristics, and logical fallacies. David McRaney interviews scientists about their research into how the mind works, and then he eats a cookie.

Customer Reviews

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.

Fantastic first podcast. The kinks will get worked out.

It was ironic to me that Dr. Simons mentions the poor sound quality of phones (near the 10:30 mark) as his own voice is hard to make out in comparison with Mr. McRaney's.

Audio snags notwithstanding, this is a pretty fantastic introduction to the mind of both McRaney and Simons. I've found the McRaney's writing to be a perfect pitch for folks with an academic background, but with a few fingers on the pulse of the rest of life and culture.

I'll continue reading the blog, and now I have another podcast to throw into the rotation.

I would expect people who listen to Freakonomics and RadioLab to like this podcast, for what it's worth.

Interesting Podcast

I enjoyed the podcast and look forward to future episodes. I did find the audio quality during the interview distracting, but I have confidence that this can be remedied.
