Behavioral Grooves 1: James Heyman, PhD

In the Behavioral Grooves first podcast, Kurt Nelson, PhD and Tim Houlihan interview James Heyman, PhD, a professor and researcher at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. Dr. Heyman’s research has led him to collaborate with renowned behavioral economists including Dan Ariely, PhD, and focuses on decision making in a world with too much irrelevant information. The interview with Dr. Heyman runs from the beginning of the podcast through 38:00 minutes. At 38:00 minutes, Kurt and Tim have their Grooving Session where they discuss topics from the interview, from the Behavioral Grooves session that month and other random things that pop into their heads.

NOTE: This is our first podcast. We didn’t know what we were doing and we ask you to keep in mind that as you listen to our very first production. Our audio quality got better. A lot better. Our questions and interview techniques have improved. By a lot. What hasn’t changed is that we interview super interesting people about super interesting topics.
