Grace-Hanson Podcasts

Katja Grace was in town recently, so she and I took the opportunity to start an occasional podcast series. Here are the first two episodes:

  1. Signaling
  2. Idealism

Alas we recorded the second one outside, with odd distracting noises, perhaps the wind.

    Your point that we are conscious of signalling when it is especially important (job interviews, etc) cuts against Dan Sperber’s argumentative/rhetorical theory of reasoning (as opposed to unconscious intuition), and in favor of the theory that some things are really hard and so require more than our unconscious intuition.

    I suppose that costs money.
    Maybe a little sidebar or section of the overcomingbias website with a catalogue of the podcasts?

    • What are you talking about? I didn’t see anything about itunes.

      • What are you talking about? I didn’t see anything about itunes.

        Me neither, but even so, there are hundreds of free podcasts on iTunes. For instance, EconTalk (which Robin has been a guest on) is available on iTunes for free.

      That sounds like a very good idea.

    In Signaling, you talk about unobserved behaviour. I imagine behaving in a certain way in private makes public signaling easier (more convincing). This could be because practice makes perfect. It may also be because convincing yourself that you really are a certain type of person makes signaling less costly (since you won’t perceive your behaviour as phony).

    I think this is false advertising, I think a podcast have to be playable on a ipod… what is with the wma … There is something called mp3, that is much better…

  • shawn reed

    now…what is Professor Hanson signaling by using the inferior, fettered wma format?

    The podcasts do not download (time-out).

    Why not use itunes and get rid of the dreadful .wma format?

    Thanks and regards
