    Hi Dr Dave,

    I\’m an undergraduate psychology student from Stockholm, Sweden. I discovered your pod cast fairly recently and have been listening to all your podcasts from scratch. I\’ve enjoyed all of the episodes so far and hope be up to date during this summer.

    I wanted to post a comment here because I find the “third way” of psychology to be very liberating. I think it is rather impressive and still brave to choose this certain academic path of psychology and I hope that many people will continue to do so.

    Kindest regards,
