    This was a fantastic show for so many reasons, but the discussion of Dr. Zimbardo’s work the famous Stanford Prison Experiment immediately called to mind NPR’s On The Media show this week. The show is called, Secrecy at the Border, and highlights abuses of unchecked U.S. agents, including a case that caused PTSD in a four-year-old girl.

    It’s a shame the advances in psychological understanding aren’t more universally understood and integrated into our system of government for the good.

    Thanks for the great content, Dr. Dave. I’m a long-time listener.
