RERUN: Aging: Water other people's tulips

Tania's birthday is this week, so we're rerunning our episode on the psychology of age and aging. Does being slightly older or slightly younger than your classmates in school impact you later in life? (Spoiler alert: yes!) What are some of the benefits of aging? And what advice do older adults have that we should all pay attention to today?

Cold & Flu Psychology: Nothing to sneeze at

In honor of Brian’s sniffles, we’re exploring the psychology of “sickness behavior.” What are the psychological symptoms of colds and flus? What makes some of us more susceptible to sickness than others? And is it possible that our germs are controlling our actions?

The Milgram Studies: Obedience, conformity, or ideology?

Were the infamous Milgram Experiments evidence of obedience, conformity, ideology, or something more sinister about human nature?  Join us for a deep dive of the shocking ;) research and its many little-known replications. We’ll explore why good people sometimes do bad things, and Tania will recreate the Milgram experiment to see if Brian will follow orders to inflict pain.  Talk psych to us: Instagram: @talkpsychtomepodcast  Twitter: @talkpsych2me  Email: tp2mpodcast@gmail.com  Co-hosted by Brian Luna and Tania Luna  Theme music by Barrie Gledden, Kes Loy, and Richard Kimmings
