  • Crying Wolf?

    This was an interesting topic, as usual, but I was unable to listen because of the voice of the person interviewed- the woman doing the experiment. Her uneven delivery - reasonable but loud tones tones alternating with loud shrieks - made the listening quite unpleasant.

  • Good podcast, great content!

    Recently discovered the Hidden Brain podcast and am really enjoying it! Appreciated the candid conversation with Niro Sivanathan about how Less is More, how to gain buy-in and how to make better arguments. Learned so much. Many helpful takeaways and can't wait to listen to more episodes! Thank you!
