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.
