Psychology Podcasts

Those who know me know I am a fiend for podcasts. Since I’m also a fiend for psychology, I can’t help but notice when it pops up in a podcast, even one not focused on psychology. I use many of them in my courses: for example, the This American Life episode on what having schizophrenia sounds like is a must listen when I hit the Abnormal Psychology chapter in Intro. The Radiolab Memory and Forgetting is a staple in my Cognitive class and I take advantage of the multi-disciplinarity of Human Factors to play clips from every area. Startup had a good one that illustrates what human factors looks like to a client.

Over the years I’ve compiled a list of my favorites relating to psychology. Some are clips from longer podcasts while some are dedicated to psychology (e.g., Invisibilia). Each one has a general area of psychology noted (although some hit two or more areas) and if it’s a clip I put the start and end time of the most related audio.

I hope you enjoy the resource and I will keep updating it as I find more. If you know of any I don’t have listed, please link to it in the comments for the blog and I’ll add it to the spreadsheet.

  1. This is a fantastic resource Anne! Thanks so much for sharing. I am a big fan of podcasts too. So much so, I recently started my own called The Perception & Action podcast which covers topics related to human factors in sports, driving and aviation.

    Cheers and thanks again,

    1. Wow, Rob. This is amazing. I’m starting to listen now and can see some obvious ones for my skill acquisition course in the spring. Thank you, and I’ll add them to the spreadsheet!
