Brain Science Education in Your Ear Buds!
I'm a big fan of the Brain Science Podcast. This is actually one of the longest running podcasts on iTunes because it really delivers a substantial amount of scientific and academic info about neuroscience and cognitive psychology.
Topics covered range from embodies cognition, brain body connection, neurobiology, some episodes even delve in where brain science meets psychology and philosophy. Many episodes I have to listen to twice to capture everything in them! As the name of the podcast suggests some of the episodes go very deep into scientific explanations of how our brains work. Laypeople may get lost in the content of these episodes.
Minus 1 Star in 'Actionable Information' because, as the host of this podcast herself explained to me. She wants to keep her podcast far away from the personal development/self help space. As a result her interviews will a lot of times be very granular on a particular study or scientific paper and then go very light on the real life applications. I respectfully disagree, I think the personal development/self help industry needs more attention from real scientists and academia.
