Always adding to my book collection
I really appreciate Kurt & Tim's interview style & recap portion! It’s sincerely curious and genuinely enjoyable to listen. Guests genuinely seem to have a good conversation. Plus, I’m finding new book titles-so thank you for sharing!
This podcast is fantastic! Kurt and Tim gather too thought leaders and engage in wonderful insightful discussions. The time flies and most often I want the interviews to continue.
Thought provoking discussions on human interactions
If you seek to motivate, work with, interact with, or are yourself a human being, this podcast is for you! Each episode explores an aspect of human behavior diving into the details of a particular theory but providing the background for anyone to jump right into the topic. While the focus in on application into the business world, there is applicability across various organizations and even a fresh lense to examine your own behaviors. The hosts are engaging and bring a humility and levity to the conversation that is a pleasure to listen to. I highly recommend you take a listen!
Incredibly insightful stuff. I learn something every episode
I just discovered this podcast a week ago, and I can’t stop listening to it. These guys and the guests they bring on is incredible. Despite the fact that they seemingly know everything there is to know about behavioral science, they still show surprise and wonder when talking with guests about what they do. I work in the business world applying behavioral science though, so Behavioral Grooves scratches all of my itches. Easily the best behavioral science podcast for people who have moved beyond the basics.
The best way to learn why we do what we do
I love these podcasts. Not only do I get to hear from the smartest minds on the planet but Kurt and Tim have an easy camaraderie and style which makes listening a pleasure. It’s hands down the best way to learn about why we do what we do and I apply something from every single session to both my professional and personal life. Keep up the great work guys.
Fascinating interviews with experts
Such a generous, wise, fun, warm-hearted podcast. Full of fascinating interviews with experts in behavioural science, and delivered with an ease which makes the episodes a joy (yes joy!) to listen to. I’ve learnt masses and have also had many hours of pleasure in the company of the delightful Tim and Kurt.
Insightful, and a lot of fun to listen to
Your interviews are always so thought-provoking and insightful, and a lot of fun to listen to. You do a great job of teasing out the issues and highlighting practical takeaways for daily life. The grooving sessions are a great way of summing everything up and a real value-add. I'm not a behavioural scientist (am a mum/wife/manager/student) but your sessions have really helped me to understand how I can understand (and interact with) the people around me a little bit better, as well as myself. It's a win all round. And I love the music conversations at the end :) Thank you thank you thank you!
Great insights while I laugh
Tim and Kurt have such a nice chemistry between them as well as with their guests that I don’t even realize that I’m learning as I listen. It’s just like I’m part of a really fun, really interesting conversation. I love the grooving session as well - always a great recap with a different spin!
I absolutely LOVE this podcast
If there were more people as intellectually curious and open as Kurt and Tim we would be living in a more peaceful world. When I listen to the questions and conversations on Behavioral Grooves I feel energized to keep learning and engaging with people who have different perspectives than mine.
Add this to your podcast rotation!
Look, I know what you’re going to think. Another podcast with two dudes talking to each other. I thought that too and didn’t listen until one of my colleagues was featured in one of the episodes. And then, I realize that these are two really funny, smart, and most importantly, kind dudes talking to each other. It’s really worth your time! Thanks guys for a great podcast.
