  • Parents keep out

    Great podcast. Encouraged by efforts to understand children’s behavior, and the difference between supervised play and unsupervised play. I just wish I’d heard what happened to the fourth grader who couldn’t follow rules!

  • Interesting and useful

    Hidden Brain is both interesting and useful. It offers a unique perspective on people, how they think, and their behavior that I've found to be helpful in my work, how I choose to live my life, and how I engage with other people.

    The Ventilator. Amazing episode on so many levels. As a former nurse who cared for vented patients, I fully admire the family and the care they gave their loved one. So so difficult.

  • The Curious Science of Cravings

    I was on my second week of not drinking and was in the middle of a craving when I saw this episode. I listened while doing chores. Completely got me over that particular craving and gave me a new perspective on why I drink at all. THANK YOU! Made it through my second weekend with alcohol!
