About

You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of self delusion that explores topics related to cognitive biases, heuristics, and logical fallacies. David McRaney interviews scientists about their research into how the mind works, and then he eats a cookie.

    Sorry about the interview quality. There was an air conditioner in the room. It's worth your time to endure it.
