Episode 74: Lies, Damned Lies, and Ashley Madison

September 16th, 2015

David and Tamler return after an end of summer hiatus to finally talk
about the ethics of deception….eventually. But first they break down
a recent article in the journal Science documenting an attempt to replicate
100 recent psychology experiments. What does it mean that just
over 1/3 of the studies were successfully replicated? Is social
psychology in crisis or is this just how science works? Will David
somehow try to pin the blame on philosophers?

Plus--a brief and almost certainly regrettable foray into the Ashley
Madison hack, the neuroscience of lying to your kids about Santa, and we announce
a new way to contact us to help celebrate our 75th anniversary.
