Today we are delighted to be joined by guest Jamil Zaki. Jamil is an assistant professor at Stanford University and director of the Stanford Social Neuroscience Laboratory. We talk with Jamil about The People’s Science, a nonprofit he co-founded that promotes direct engagement between scientists and the public. Plus: In our letter of the week, we talk about when neuroscience adds value to psychological research (and maybe when we’re not so sure). And we tell the story of where the name “The Black Goat” came from.
Discussed in this episode:
- Jamil Zaki’s lab
- The People’s Science
- Baby hippo Fiona video
- The Myth of Executive Stress by Keith Payne
