In episode 4, titled The Replication Crisis Gets Personal, Yoel and Mickey discuss the replication crisis in psychology. What is meant by the replication crisis and how did it get started? Why does it appear like the field is split into two, with some young academics actively trying to reform psychology and more senior scholars suggesting the problems have been mostly overstated? How have academics dealt with the possibility that their own work might not be robust and replicable? Finally, how did one of the most notorious academic fraudsters get caught? Bonus: Did Mickey spike Toxoplasma gondii (crazy cat lady parasite) in Yoel’s beer?
Yoel Inbar and Michael Inzlicht have started a new podcast called, Two Psychologists Four Beers. The premise of the show is that Yoel and Michael slowly get (mildly) drunk while discussing news and controversies in science, academia, and beyond.
