    Hi, I just found you – and I would really like to listen to all of the podcasts, but I seem to have a problem downloading from ITunes and from this website. Is there something I am doing wrong or need to do to download them. Thanks for your time.

    I too am confused. I was going to download some of the old shows but instead of downloading onto my computer, they just open as a quicktime in another browser window and play there. Then there is the “pop-up” that also plays online in another window which is pretty much the same thing usage-wise (meaning I cannot put them on my ipod, but would have to stay tethered to my computer to hear them. What am I doing wrong?

    I believe you will find that if you Control-Click on the word “Download” or the Audio MP3 label, you will get a drop-down menu that will include the option to “Download linked file.” Choosing that option will allow you to download it to your hard drive. Does that solve the problem?

    Intuition, a very fascinating topic. I read some books on that topic, and one that stands out concerning the “fun factor” of working with your intuition is “Knowing When It’s Right – An Intuitive Approach To Improving Relationships” by Nancy Rosanoff.

    Why? Because it’s so easy flowing. No overload of theory or a long introduction, just some principles and very many exercises that are fun.

    A very short one for example: Try to calm down and then try to imagine a river. Take the first image that comes to mind, imagine all the details and all the impressions. Ok? And that is the picture for your life in the current period, so to say the “flow” of your life just now.
    That’s just a little example of the wealth of little exercises, most of them are dealing with intuition in the field of interpersonal relationships.

    Intuition, psychics, really?!
    Is this really psychology? Maybe if you were explaining how (what happens in their brains) these people feel \’intuitions\’ and \’visions\’ in a psychological way you could justify calling this a psychology podcast.
    Some peer reviewed scientific journals/ research on these subjects would be helpful.

    P.S. Psychics would have surely taken up the one million dollars James Randi is offering them?
