Exciting new resource alert for knowmads and psychology enthusiasts: The Psychology Podcast with Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman:

Where we give you insights into the mind, brain, behavior and creativity. Each episode will feature a guest who will stimulate your mind, and give you a greater understanding of your self, others, and the world we live in. Hopefully, we’ll also provide a glimpse into human possibility!

What intrigues me most about this new podcast is its focus on diversifying the landscape of psychologists whose work gets reported and discussed. In the words of Barry Kaufman:

I feel like there are SO MANY podcasts that keep featuring the same guests over and over again, when there are so many awesome people out there doing work in psychology who rarely get appreciated or noticed. Sure, I’ll be having some of the more well known guests on my show. But I will also be featuring lots of folks who deserve a voice.

Head over to the website to listen to the first three episodes featuring Robert Greene on mastery and social intelligence; Gabriele Oettingen on daydreaming and mental contrasting for goal-fulfillment; and Annie Murphy Paul on learning and growth mindset.

Scott Barry Kaufman On the Importance of Harmonious Passion To Enjoying the Learning Process …*

H A R M O N I O U S   P A S S I O N  “is a very specific kind of passion that is well integrated into your identity. So it’s not like, “I like to play basketball,” or “I like to learn science.” It’s: “I am a basketball player,” “I am a scientist.” It’s something that is so well integrated into your day–it’s something that you feel good about intrinsically, as part of your day–that it makes you want to learn, it makes you enjoy the learning process.”
