The Illusion of Explanatory Depth

To paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld, there are the known knowns, the known unknowns, and the unknown unknowns; and it's in the latter that the most cause for concern arises. What we don't know we don't know but think we know can be dangerous, and in this episode of Two Guys on Your Head, Dr. Art Markman, and Dr. Bob Duke talk about the psychology behind it.

The Continued Problem With TED Talks

It can be enjoyable, even exciting, and inspiring to watch TED Talks or read self-help books, or even listen to this show. But the truth is, doing these things won't solve the big problems. Just taking in information cannot feed the world, won't treat depression, and can't change behavior; these things take a lot of work and a lot of time. In this edition of Two Guys on Your Head, Dr. Art Markman, and Dr. Bob Duke talk about why they won't help, yet why we still love them.
