Yoel and Mickey welcome Clay Routledge to the show. Clay is a professor of psychology at North Dakota State University who studies the cognitive and motivational consequences of the search for meaning, including religion and other supernatural beliefs. Clay talks about his childhood growing up as the child of missionaries in Africa and the U.S., what it's like to be outside the liberal mainstream in psychology, and how religion and belief in alien visitors may be connected.
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.
